Midweek Video: Chick Habit vs Faster, Pussycat! Kill! Kill!

Quentin Tarantino has ripped a lot of songs out of my pop culture memories and took ownership of them by attaching them to scenes in his movies.

He took Nobody But Me by the Human Beinz from me... granted it was an awesome scene, and it was worth it.

And then in the credits of Death Proof, he nabbed Chick Habit by April March, and he locked up that connection in my brain now.

So when I saw this new video from the song featuring footage from Russ Meyer's Faster, Pussycat! Kill! Kill!, it seemed strangely appropriate, and it liberated Tarantino's grip on the song.

I'm free!

My brain will always associate this song with Death Proof...even after watching this video.

Tarantino does have good taste in music. Chick Habit is a mainstay on my ipod and so is Nancy Sinatra's Bang Bang from Kill Bill. I am sort of pissed that the theme from Badlands was used in True Romance, but I guess he didn't have much say in the matter.

I have some misgivings about the Morricone hotwiring he did to my brain too.
