– You won’t forget about me?

– I won’t forget about you. It’s cool. No matter where he takes you…Timbuktu, it don’t matter. ‘Cause we’re fate. You know? Nobody can stop fate. Nobody can.
And one of these nights soon…I’m gonna be comin’ for you.

I’ve been driving after midnight, shoulda been walkin’: it would have been closer to today’s theme.
Met a country-lover. The raunchier/louder stuff. But I couldn’t help but think of Patsy Cline.

I’m Crazy for feeling so lonely

Here’s the original but you HAVE to check out this great version by the Kills.

So, anyway Patsy sang a lot of great country songs including “You belong to me”.
Rose McGowan covered it in Grindhouse: Planet Terror. But the Tarantino connection is even older since Bob Dylan’s version was used in Natural Born Killers (which was based on a script by Quentin)…
Sorry I got carried away with all this useless trivia I carry around.
Here’s the song and the small dialogue excerpt quoted above. Unfortunately it’s just a still.

See the pyramids along the Nile
Watch the sunrise on a tropic isle
Just remember darlin’ all the while
You belong to me

See the market place in Old Algiers
Send me photographs and souvenirs
Just remember when a dream appears
You belong to me

I’ll be so alone without you
Maybe you’ll be lonesome too, and blue

Fly the ocean in a silver plane
See the jungle when it’s wet with rain
Just remember ’til you’re home again
You belong to me

And now we go full circle. From “You Belong To Me” we skip to one of the most beautiful Dylan tracks ever. From Bringing It All Back Home: “She Belongs To Me”

But I prefer this version from the The Bootleg Series, Vol. 7: No Direction Home – The Soundtrack

She’s got everything she needs,
She’s an artist, she don’t look back.
She’s got everything she needs,
She’s an artist, she don’t look back.
She can take the dark out of the nighttime
And paint the daytime black.
