Dawn Of The Dead – Goblin (1978)


Dawn Of The Dead
Composer: Goblin
Two soundtracks for your listening pleasure here, due to the film’s varying versions. Dario Argento supervised his own cut for non-English speaking countries (calling the film ‘Zombi’), a version scored by frequent collaborators Goblin. Their creepy score is a bonkers melting pot of influences, ranging from weird country to voodoo chanting to some sort of proto-techno, taking in guitar, piano, sax, funk bass, and, of course, the most evil instrument known to man, the Mellotron. But DOTD’s most famous track, the chirpy choon in your head right now, is from the other album of incidental tracks Romero chose for his own, Goblin-reduced cut. It’s called The Gonk, by Herbert Chappell. When there’s no more room in hell, you may be able to find it online.

Was disappointed to not see Animal House on this. Some great songs in that. Pleased to see American Graffiti though. That is the best soundtrack ever More

5 Wot no CE3K?
At the risk of over-doing the John Williams presence, wot no Close Encounters? Five notes every bit as essential as Jaws's two. More

8 Goblin - Suspiria
Where is Goblin's soundtrack for Suspiria? It's one of the greatest soundtracks, let alone horror soundtracks ever done. Hell, it's scary listening to it on it's own! More
