Urge Overkill's "Girl, You'll Be a Woman Soon" in Pulp Fiction

Film Released: 1994

Pulp Fiction is remembered for its music just as much as Quentin Tarantino's groundbreaking dialogue, and it's this moment that stands above them all. The "Jungle Boogie" intro was flames, the "Son of a Preacher Man" scene is a classic, and the Chuck Berry dance sequence singlehandedly revived John Travolta's career, but nothing beats watching a coked-up Uma Thurman spaz out to Urge Overkill.

Her character Mia Wallace dances and sings along to the rapidfire lyrics with the perfect amount of enthusiasm. The only thing that stops her is a near-fatal drug overdose, but even then, "Girl, You'll Be A Woman Soon" blares on.
