You could use edits from Phenomena for a New Romantic video.

Re: Frankie Goes to Hollywood. The Demons soundtracks throw up similar surprises. It always weirds me out when I hear The Smiths pop up in Demons 2. I often wonder whether Morrisey knews about it.
There is something about music videos and cinema where they borrow heavily from each other -- I watched Razorback last week and, before it was mentioned by Alan Jones in the featurette, noticed how closely the visuals resembled Russell Mulcahy's early music videos such as Video Killed the Radio Star, with plenty of fog and backlighting.

Spot on.
His video background is blatantly obvious,and Razorback is all the more stunning for it!
As it was in Highlander....

The strange, atmospheric Bill Wyman track "Valley" is one of my faves from the film.

Do people like the mix of Goblin-style horror-disco-prog-rock with thundering Metal (see also Demons)?

Click the LP to read the post...

Did you find out who did the piece of music that plays with the scene of Jennifer's room-mate going out to meet her boyfriend late at night? It's been bugging me for years!

I think we'll have to agree to disagree. This film contains some of my favourite pieces of music to ever grace an Argento film.

As this trailer shows it's not all Iron Maiden, infact there is some beautiful pieces of music in this film.

since i do have 3 copies, ive very familiar with the ST, and the clunky nature with which some of the music has been placed within the film destroys what tension there is for me, as ive said pass. we'll leave it at that, ok??
