Little Green Bag - The George Baker Selection
On Tuesday nights, after my volleyball games, I go straight home to join the family viewing of American Idol. I can never explain why I enjoy that show. It's the only reality show I watch, and it's cheesy karaoke. It's nothing I'd ever actually go out of my way to hear, but we don't miss an episode.

Part of the allure is that the kids love it. They know the competitors, have their favourites, enjoy the tunes and enjoy the judges commentary. I can't blame it all on the kids, however, because my wife and I watched this show together before the kids ever caught a glimpse of Simon. I think I enjoy the kitschy quality of American Idol. I think it's a wonderful guilty pleasure, a silly escape from the heavier television fare I typically enjoy.

Quentin Tarantino seems drawn to AI for similar reasons. He too never misses an episode, and last night he was on the show coaching the competitors as they sang songs from movies.

I love Tarantino films. I absolutely love them. All of 'em. I love Tarantino movie soundtracks just as much. My favourite song from a Tarantino film might just be "Little Green Bag" by The George Baker Selection.

Good call Mike. This is one of my fave title credit sequences ever.

Loved the lampoon years later on SNL with Travolta as host...where the Sweathogs tied up Vice-Principal Woodman and "Stuck In The Middle" was playing and you know the rest.

Such a cool song from a Dutch producer who also gave us dregs like "Una Paloma Blanca".

Quentin picks brillent tunes for all his soundtracks. Wicked tune! Played this soundtrack continously during my early courting days with my hubby.
