Published Jun 17, 2008Most of the time Click Hears purpose is to discover something new, and by that I mean current or forthcoming, but sometimes an exception just has to be made.
Just by doing a Google search for an obscure disco soundtrack theme song I was looking to track down (the theme from Friday the 13th Part 3 in 3D, in case youre interested), I discovered this absolute beauty of a mix by some dude named Boy 8 Bit, who posted it for download on his now inactive blog.
Comprised of a tracklisting lifted straight from a horror geeks wet nightmare, this untitled 35-minute mix is a masterfully sequenced stream that wisely borrows from many of Dario Argentos scores. Soundtrack heavyweights Goblin are given generous representation, including the brilliant insertion of a number from the obscure telekinetic psychopathic classic Patrick. Of course, Hot Ices "Friday 13th Pt. 3 Titles is here, and its a definite standout, but theres a lot going on, including the obligatory haunted sound effects, which add some effective ambiance.
