Django Unchained
Quentin Tarantino's "Django Unchained" hasn't even hit theaters yet, but the bloody, sprawling comedic (and yes, kinda messy) slave drama/spaghetti western is still the talk of the moment (we ran three different reviews of the movie we were all so eager to discuss it). By this point you've likely already seen the entire tracklist for the "Django Unchained" soundtrack, heard many of the cuts or streamed the entire thing.You may have even seen our feature about the films that inspired the music in "Django Unchained" and watched some of their original trailers. And yet, every soundtrack disc generally can't fit all the music used in the film, so of course there's more.

Going through the production notes, there's actually 14 more cuts not featured in the soundtrack CD release so we thought to be completists about it, we'd mark them all down along with a bit of info about where they're from. Here we go:

"Rito Finale" and "Norme Con Ironie" come from the 1970 Charles Bronson picture "Città Violenta" ("Violent City") by Sergio Sollima. Both versions of “Town of Silence” and the track "Blue Dark Waltz" are pilfered from Sergio Corbucci's "Django," which is obviously one of the main influences on Tarantino in this picture, or at least a jumping off point to explore his own ideas. "Requiem" (Verdi)-Prologue" is taken from Kinji Fuksaku's 2002 cult-classic teen surival film "Battle Royale." Ennio Morricone's "The Big Risk" is taken from the 1970 war film "Hornets' Nest" starring Rock Hudson and the composer's "Minacciosamente Lontano" and "Dopo la congiura" are both appropriated from another Sergio Corbucci spaghetti western called "Crudeli, I" ("The Hellbenders" from 1966).

Richie Havens' "Freedom" is apparently the same version he played live in the "Woodstock" film. "Ode To Django" is an original song by RZA that plays in the film's final credits. The instruments are credited to RZA and (Tru' James) Stone Meccam, lyrics by Rza inspired by Quentin Tarantino and the track incorporates dialogue from "Day of Anger" directed by Tonino Valerii, "Django" directed by Sergio Corbucci, and "The Bounty Killers" aka "The Ugly Ones" directed by Eugenio Martin. These latter films are key influences to the music as well. "I Giorni Dell'ira" by Riziero Ortolani (featured in the "Django Unchained" soundtrack) is essentially the title theme of "Day of Anger." Though it doesn't appear that Stelvio Cipriani's score for "The Ugly Ones" was used anywhere.

Samples and trailers below where applicable. Links in the tracklist go to audio samples that are not embeddable. "Django Unchained" opens on Christmas Day. And at the very bottom, two new images from the film via BlackFilm.

"The Ugly Ones" directed by Eugenio Martin.
