Diamond Thanks Pulp Fiction For Comeback

Published on May 24, 2008 with No Comments

Neil Diamond has publicly credited moviemaker Quentin Tarantino for his career comeback – because the use of Girl, You’ll Be A Woman Soon in Pulp Fiction gave the crooner a big boost.

Oddly, Diamond initially turned down Tarantino’s approach because he feared the scene featuring Urge Overkill’s rendition of his moody classic glorified drugs and drug use.

He recalled: “When Quentin Tarantino first sent me his script, I’d turned down the use of that song (because) I thought the scene it was used in was heavily into the drug ambience. I promised myself that I wouldn’t allow my music to sensationalise drug use.”

But a persistent Tarantino insisted Diamond’s song was the perfect tune for the scene, and the Sweet Carolina singer’s publicist eventually won him over.

Diamond told Spin magazine: “My publisher argued on Quentin’s behalf, and I reconsidered, even though I was very, very wary about it. That was really the beginning of the turnaround for me.”
