Notes on Tarantino's use of certain songs, aware of the power of imagery to change the songs' impact, reminds me of Kubrick's use of "Singin' in the Rain" in Clockwork Orange. Took me a long time before I was able to watch Gene Kelly do his famous puddle stomp without also remembering Malcolm McDowell's booting his victim.

As Jean Hagen (no relation) would say in Singin', "I caint gettim outta my mind!"
