Songs from the Past: Neil Diamond – Girl You’ll be a Woman Soon

This week’s Song from the Past from me is Neil Diamond’s ‘Girl You’ll be a Woman Soon’ from 1967 just because I absolutely love it ❀

However Urge Overkill recorded a cover version that was used in Quentin Tarantino’s 1994 movie ‘Pulp Fiction’, and I think maybe I like this version even more – but perhaps because that’s because I really loved the movie, and the association is so strong

Either way, it’s a great song… πŸ™‚

    I’ll admit to not knowing the song and not seeing the movie, Ruth. So, thank you for introducing both to me. πŸ˜€

      Pulp Fiction is a bit of a marmite movie – you either love it or hate it! Although the subject matter isn’t really my cup of tea (gangsters, guns and drugs – but oh what a wonderful cast!), I love the random non-chronological order of it all – initially each separate scene seems unlinked in both time and place, and it’s only at the end you can really work it all out and put it all in order in your head. ‘Memento’ is another non-chronological movie I love – although it runs completely backwards, with the main protagonist (played by Guy Pierce) struggling with memory loss after a traumatic incident in his family life, so we effectively approach the story blind as to what’s gone before, just as he does – it’s a brilliant psychological thriller as long as you don’t pull it apart too much πŸ™‚
