Girl on a Motorcycle (1968) / music by Les Reed

some biker go-go music from the height of the biker film craze. marianne faithful in a full body leather outfit is an iconic image that i immortalized on my dorm wall in college (i didnt think yvonne craig as Batgirl on my wall would impress my dorm-mates and anyway i always hated the Batgirl mask).

Metempsycho (1963) / music by Armando Sciascia

This one is not easy to describe; its not movie music in the same sense as, say, John Barry, Jerry Goldsmith or what have you. There are no melodies really, no music(!) in a sense. What we have here for the most part are musical notes, trying to establish an atmosphere. It succeeds to a certain extent; the film is apparently a horror film and the music does disorient you (although its not scary in the slightest). Yup, one listen is guaranteed to get you scratching your heads as if to ask "Wha th'fuck is this...?"

I cant say that you will like this, you probably wont ever listen to it more than once, but here it is anyway...

Deadfall (1968) / music by John Barry

I guess its a Michael Caine double feature kind of evening...

music by the great John Barry, at his if that wasnt enough, the title song is song by Shirley Bassey...

Alfie (1966) / music by Sonny Rollins

and now, a break from the recent rash of euro grooves; time for an old fashioned, honest - to - goodness jazz soundtrack for a change o'pace.

She Knew No Other Way (1977?) / music by Mike Rozakis

still more eurotrash grooves, this time from the greeks (!).

and it aint half-bad, at that.

the main theme track is ABSOLUTELY FUCKING FANTASTIC.
