    absolutely. I could see him using this one (I'm trying to remember if he has included Dave Dee Dozy Beaky Mick & Tich on one of his past soundtracks)

    Love this song- I'd be really impressed if he ever used it.

    Love this song (the version on Sound + Vision), but I've never once heard someone else be kind to it!

    most likely a solid bet. good deduction!

    absolutely. Doesn't even matter they're american, I can see him using this. (I love the album this song is on)

    You couldn’t put a soundtrack like that together for less than....one million dollars!!

    Ummm, nobody said anything about snark. So, what's your point, that you can read my avatar...?
    The two libraries eloquently illustrate the differences in the characters of this hypothetical Tarrantino joint: Carnaby Street, vs. stereotypical American, doubtlessly played for comedy.
    Now...go check your blood pressure...

    What are you talking about? Many of the choices are The Beatles, The Who, The Kinks, Hendrix, The Stones.....
    In other words, not going to happen---unless half the production budget is securing music rights.

    I'll bite. But I'm working on the realistic viewpoint that The Beatles & Rolling Stones will be too costly; & that Dave Clark wants too much money &/or wants a say on where his band's track is placed in the film:

    So trying to get the right balance of hipster eclectic; ironically cheesy; a couple of instrumentals; & the odd obvious gem.

    I'm naming this mock 16 track Tarantino soundtrack to a Revenge gangster film set in 1960s London after the title of one of the tracks "Pay You Back With Interest":

    The Hollies - Pay You Back With Interest
    The Pretty Things - London Town
    David Bowie - Can't Help Thinking About Me
    The Yardbirds - Shapes Of Things
    The Who - La La La Lies
    Cilla Black - It's For You
    Les Fleurs De Lys - Circles
    John's Children - Desdemona
    The Small Faces - Collibosher
    Cliff Richard - Congratulations
    Matt Monro - Walk Away
    The Kinks - I'm Not Like Everybody Else
    Sandie Shaw - Message Understood
    Pink Floyd - Interstellar Overdrive
    PP Arnold - The First Cut Is The Deepest
    Engelbert Humperdinck - Les bicyclettes de Belsize

    Obviously, the pivotal, most gratuitously violent scene of the film takes place during the Cliff Richard track.

  13. Gotta disagree, LOL

    Blame the Machines post, above presents a good counter.

    I (and others) have posted many other less popular acts than the titans in you post.

    Just read my posts in this thread, alone, and you’ll find:


    The Strangeloves

    The Yardbirds

    The Hollies

    Ian Whitcomb

    The Searchers

    The Animals

    Funnily enough, I watched the film last week and thought how the general vibe shared some similarities with QT's movies. I could see him pull that off, yes.

    Recorded in summer of '67 (released '68) with McCartney producing his brother, Jimi Hendrix on guitar and ex-Yardbird Paul Samwell-Smith on bass...

    Hmmm... could that be pulled off with London as the setting?
    If anyone could, it''s him.
    But would he want to?
