Soundtrack Q & A
Q: This is probably one those "oh know not again" questions, but in this film there is an instrumental that I'm forever hearing on TV programs and backing tracks for radio shows. It's the one that is played as O'Ren Ishii walks with her crew (in slow motion) down the corridor in her lair. I don't think it's on the album, just need to know what is called (before I pull all hair out). Anyone? Cheers, (from Daveychops in Portsmouth, United Kingdom)
A: Is it "Battle Without Honor or Humanity" by Tomoyasu Hotei? (thanks to Anthony, N. Chicago, ILadd more info

Q: Anyone tell me what is the song that is played while Budd and Bill are talking to each other when Budd says "that girl deserves her revenge, and we deserve to die"? (from joe in ma)
A: "The Lonely Shepherd" by Zamfir, the "Master of the Pan Flute" (thanks to charlie, mobile, ALadd more info
A: Actually not the Zamfir song. It is "Dies Irae" by Nora Orlandi (I've been looking for this track since I first saw the movie--finally someone on youtube had the answer). The Zamfir track is either before or after the "deserve to die" scene. (thanks to d-bo, east bay, CAadd more info

Q: What's the song playing when Beatrix and Oren start to fight in the winter garden? (from Frost in Canada)
A: "Please Don't Let Me Be Misunderstood" by Santa Esmerelda. However, the song has been altered beyond recognition in the movie. The real track sounds nothing like it. (thanks to 6453893, Australiaadd more info
A: Actually it is "Please Don't Let Me Be Misunderstood" by Santa Esmeralda, but the part you hear in the movie is at about the middle of the song after the entire lyrics have been sung... they break into an instrumental and that is what you hear in the movie. (thanks to Falsy69, Los Angeles, CAadd more info

Q: Is there any way to get the version of "Don't Let Me Be Misunderstood" as it is heard in the movie? (from Rusty Piper in Wisconsin)
