Once again Quentin Tarantino's new film is making waves not only for the film itself, but for the film's music and now you can listen to the soundtrack for Django Unchained accompanied by Tarantino's commentary.
On December 14, Tarantino took part in what was called "Quentin Tarantino Unleashed" on the Sirius/XM radio show Little Steven's Underground Garage and provided a track-by-track commentary that is now available to listen to online directly below.
Stories include how Rick Ross' "100 Black Coffins" became one of the first original songs in a Tarantino film and also the story of how John Legend wrote "Who Did That To You?" without reading the script and sending the song over on an audio cassette of all things. The soundtrack is available now to purchase through Amazon and can be ordered right here.
You can also listen to the one original track Tarantino couldn't fit into the film, Frank Ocean's "Wiseman". Tarantino said Ocean's song was "beautiful", but "It just didn't fit in. He wrote it, one, because he liked the idea of the movie and particularly because he likes my movies and the way I use music in my movies. So I could have used it in an innocuous way, but that's not what he wanted. I thought it would be disrespectful just so I could have it and just so I could put it on the soundtrack. But it's a beautiful song. I'm sure it's going to be a big hit for him."
Listen to that song directly below.
Also, The Playlist has listed 14 of the songs from the film that were not included on the soundtrack as well as samples where available. Artists include Ennio Morricone, Luis Bacalov and Grace Collins as well as RZA's "Ode to Django (The D is Silent)", which is exclusively available on the iTunes release of the soundtrack.
