The Horror Honeys: February Honey Jam - 'Bang Bang'

February Honey Jam - 'Bang Bang'

Twisted Love Songs Edition

Bang bang, I shot you down 
Bang bang, you hit the ground 
Bang bang, that awful sound 
Bang bang, I used to shoot you down. 

Music played and people sang 
Just for me the church bells rang. 

Now he's gone, I don't know why 
And 'till this day, sometimes I cry 
He didn't even say goodbye 
He didn't take the time to lie.

In 1966, Nancy Sinatra was a beauty icon, and a sultry songstress, with the success of sassy tracks like These Boots Are Made for Walkin', Bang Bang is an unexpectedly mournful tune.  As much as we Honey's have a bit of a bristly attitude towards Mr. Tarantino, his inclusion of this song in Kill Bill Vol 1 made the plight of the bride that much more beautifully poignant. ~HH
