It might only be half a movie, but Quentin Tarantino‘s "Death Proof" is getting a full-bore soundtrack CD full of coloful tunes from the 1960s and ’70s.

In addition to an old score pieces from Pino Donaggio, a new one from Ennio Morricone (and a bunch of movie dialogue wedged in there) the "Death Proof" CD will also feature tracks from bands like T Rex, Pacific Gas & Electric, The Coasters and April March.

If you were one of those people who wore out your copy of the "Pulp Fiction" soundtrack, just check out the selections Tarantino’s picked this time around:

(Film dialogue is in italic)

"The Last Race" — Jack Nitzsche
"Baby, It’s You" — Smith
"Paranoia Prima" — Ennio Morricone
"Planning & Scheming" — Eli Roth & Michael Bacall
"Jeepster" — T Rex
"Stuntman Mike" — Rose McGowan & Kurt Russell
"Staggolee" — Pacific Gas & Electric
"The Love You Save (May Be Your Own)" — Joe Tex
"Good Love, Bad Love" — Eddie Floyd
"Down In Mexico" — The Coasters
"Hold Tight – Dave Dee, Dozy, Beaky, Mick & Tich

"Whatever-However" — Tracie Thoms & Zoe Bell
"Riot In Thunder Alley" — Eddie Beram

The soundtrack hits stores three days before "Grindhouse" hits the screens, which means you can get a copy on April 3rd.

And in case you missed it, the official synopsis for "Death Proof":

Death Proof follows Austin’s hottest DJ, Jungle Julia (Sydney Tamiia Poitier) as she sets out into the night to unwind with her two friends Shanna (Jordan Ladd) and Arlene (Vanessa Ferlito). Covertly tracking their moves is Stuntman Mike (Kurt Russell), a scarred rebel leering from behind the wheel of his muscle car, revving just feet away.
