Pulp Fiction (1994) w/ David Ballantyne of The Vinyl Score

David Ballantyne of The Vinyl Score YouTube Channel stops by to chat with Ryan and Nicole about the 1994 Quentin Tarantino blockbuster Pulp Fiction and its triple platinum soundtrack. It's a soundtrack that seemed to be everywhere in 1994 and it opened up a lot of ears to a bunch of different genres of music including surf rock, R&B and classic rock. We start with "Pumpkin and Hunny Bunny" / "Misirlou" and go through our favorite tracks from the soundtrack as well as how Tarantino wanted to license The Knack's "My Sharona" for an iconic scene in the film, but was ultimately rebuffed by the band. We also talk about Urge Overkill and their surprise hit, a cover of Neil Diamond's "Girl, You'll be a Woman Soon", and how they had two women in Chicago intensely troll them back in the late 80/early 90s.
