Urge Overkill’s Girl…

Even if Urge Overkill were talentless musicians, according to producer-extraordinaire Steve Albini, the 90s quartet scored large when Quentin Tarantino decided to perfectly place their Girl, You’ll Be a Woman Soon – which was originally written and performed by Neil Diamond – in 94’s stunna Pulp Fiction. The soft, intricately strummed piece is almost soothing. The gentleness quickly erupts with a full sound – one brimming with 60s sounding sunshine and possibility. A song capable of setting the soon to be very awkward scene between Vincent Vega and Mia Wallace; and a track capable of placement in a more serious, sentimental moment – like a ceremony of holy matrimony. Versatility.

Urge Overkill reinterpreted Mr. Diamond’s original in a timeless manner. 16 years later, the delicacy is still intact, and I can’t help but hit repeat….

Urge Overkill :: Girl, You’ll Be a Woman Soon

QT has a strong ear and knows when and how to use a song.
