Grindhouse Soundtrack

edited December 2010 in Grindhouse Film


The soundtrack from Death Proof is basically filled with classic driving music, some obscure pop tunes, and to be frank, a collection of classic car chase music. In the movies out today, driving scenes are full of heavy metal, hard rock, and god forbid, techno music. One of the most notable songs from the car chasing in Death Proof is Riot in Thunder Alley, from the classic carsploitation flick ‘Thunder Alley.’ There’s also ‘It’s So Easy’ by Willy Deville, which was a theme song from the 1980 cop thriller ‘Cruising’, but you won’t hear it in the theatrical cut of the film.

The soundtrack from Planet Terror is a little more abstract, and for the most part, there’s one continuous theme that changes subtly throughout the course of the film. There were only a couple of songs that weren’t created for the film and composed by Robert Rodriguez, –who’s basically the jack of all trades in the movie business. Rodriguez’s only weakness is ‘Spy Kids’; some useless and potentially disturbing trivia for you: Danny Trejo, who’s set to play Machete in the upcoming Rodriguez feature, also played Machete in Spy Kids.

The only other two songs on the album that weren’t composed in a collaboration with Rodriguez are Too Drunk to Fuck, by Nouvelle Vague, and You Belong to Me, as performed on the soundtrack by Rose McGowan, though originally sung by Sue Thompson, its most popular cover is performed by Jo Stafford.
