Songs in Famous Movie Scenes: Tarantino Edition

When Quentin Tarantino first stunned audiences with Reservoir Dogs, it wasn't just his fresh, non-linear approach to storytelling that got people talking, but his eclectic, sometimes anachronistic song choices that would become his trademark. Music didn't just help the plot unfold but became a crucial part of the plot itself.

He said: "That's one of the things about using music in movies that's so cool, is the fact that if you do it right, if you use the right song, in the right scene... it's about as cinematic a thing as you can do. You are really doing what movies do better than any other art form; it really works in this visceral, emotional, cinematic way that's just really special."

Can you identify the songs in these famous movie scenes: Quentin Tarantino Edition?

Quentin Tarantino is a genius when it comes to matching a track to the mood of a sceneMike from America
Leave it to people in the industry(by and large) to have such an encyclopedic knowledge of music and a creative way of using it(another ex: Allen Toussaint's "Sweet Touch of Love" in that chocolate Axe commercial, and many more on that front).

And what do you have against what The Who did after 1966?
