    "I Used To Think It Was Easy" in "Miss Stevens"

    Recently released on DVD by The Orchard...

    Miss Stevens: a 2016 motion picture starring Lily Rabe who won the SXSW Best Actress Special Jury Prize for this role.

    The soundtrack includes Nancy's soulful reading of Pat St. Clare's "I Used To Think It Was Easy" from the Woman LP.



    I used to think it was easy honey
    I used to think it was all right
    I used to think it was simple enough
    Till scratching my way became my way of life

    Three months prior to Woman, Bobby Darin had released his own version of "I Used To Think It Was Easy" on his eponymous final album in August 1972.

    "Full Metal Jacket" Dark-Green Vinyl

    Reissued this year by Warner Bros. (603497860432) on 140g dark-green vinyl...


    Stanley Kubrick's Full Metal Jacket - Original Motion Picture Soundtrack...


    ...featuring Nancy's original recording of "These Boots Are Made For Walkin'." The album had initially been released on black vinyl, CD and cassette in 1987.

For your additional entertainment, FULL METAL JACKET has been pressed on dark green vinyl. It’s hard to say that it’s fun, given the topic of the film, but it’s certainly an appropriate color.

  7. I remember sending Kubrick a telegram saying, "I've heard a rumor you may use a song of mine in your film. I hope you do." It was an honor to be even a small part of one of his projects.

    "Kill Bill Vol. 1" on "Best Movie Soundtracks" List

    Kill Bill Vol. 1 Original Soundtrack was recently selected by Town & Country magazine as one of "The 18 Best Movie Soundtracks to Listen to, Even If You Haven't Seen the Movie."

    Too often, the music accompanying a film feels like an afterthought—a few songs tacked on to heighten the mood, a ballad to tie a montage together. But in these 18 movies, that's thankfully not the case; the audio is integral, sometimes even overshadowing the visuals with a masterful compilation. Check out the 18 best movie soundtracks below.

    Kill Bill just wouldn't be what it is without its eclectic soundtrack. Whether it's Nancy Sinatra crooning "Bang bang, he shot me down," or The 5.6.7.8's rocking out to "Woo Hoo," these songs make the scenes they're in.
