Dhan Ta Nan - Pulp Fiction - Misirlou

Misirlou is a century-old folk song but Dick Dales’ version from the ‘60s is the most accepted one, especially after Pulp Fiction in 1994. Now it seems that any song that has the Misirlou tune and/or beats is an instant hit, Pump It by the Black Eyed Peas being the obvious example.
Bollywood too borrowed from it. We had Cash by Vishal-Shekhar in 2007 and today, Dhan Te Nan by Vishal Bhardwaj for movie Kaminey (sung by Sukhwinder Singh and Vishal Dadlani from Vishal-Shekhar).
Even the Mauritian rock band Xbreed Supersoul started their song Crowd Surfing with Misirlou, so there are lots of covers out there.
Xbreed Supersoul’s last album ‘A Letter to G’ is available on iTunes. (Myspace)
