Yikes. I just downloaded "Goodbye Horses" by Q. Lazzarus.
This is the song Buffalo Bill dances to in that infamous mirror scene from Silence of the Lambs.
I thought the song was cool and creepy, and I like cool and creepy songs.
But this is freaking me out a little too much. I don't feel right.
OH MY GOD!!!!
I love this song too, I love the film, I love Ted Levine/Buffalo Bill.
How spookyily coincidental is this post!!!!I was thinking of the song yesterday.
I had a look for the song a while back, only to be listed on non existent compilation albums.
I think I read that it was released as a single but never on an album.
I mistakenly thought Photographs of you by Flock of Seagulls was the same song and had that on the stereo for quite a while.Luckily its a great song anyway.
Is it really cool/creepy/atmospheric??!!!!!
ooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooh oooooooooooooooohoooooooooooooooooooo Im cryin' cryin' cryin' over yoooooooooooooooooou hooooooooooooooooohooooooooooooooo...
Yeah I was looking for the song and it's only available on the out of print Married to the Mob soundtrack, which goes on ebay for about 25 bucks.
Just the opening drum beat...shiver. You can almost hear it echoing in Buffalo Bill's little dungeon.
Eeeeeek.Ive never heard it all the way through.
Didnt a band call Psyche(??) do a cover version, quite a good one i think.
It works perfectly with the film, probably wouldnt have sounded as good if it wasnt in an echoey dungeon as he puts on his make up, fiddles with the nipple ring, talks to himself in the mirror and moves 'things' to become a woman.
Im quite surprised, years after originally seeing SOTL i watched it again only to realise Id become intersted in sewing!!Maybe Buffalo Bill subconsciously influenced me!!Tho I tend to go for fabrics not human skin, too leathery.
Im getting my fix of Ted Levine, his gorgeous voice and blue eyes on Monk shown on Saturdays over here, tho I think the series finished last week, sob.
It places the lotion in the basket...it does this whenever its told.
Thanks but sadly im not modern enough to to know how to do that, plus I dont have the right eqipment.
SOTL was on at the weekend and I paid more attention to the song, I made out the words Goodbye Horses, made it even more eerie!!
Ted Levines still looking good!!
Me to, it should be realeased for Silence of the Lambs 15 year anniversary!!!
The new Robbie Williams song reminds me of GH.It has similar woohoo-ing in it.
GH vs. Robbie Williams
Material girl: I drew exactly the same parallels in my head when I heard the RB-song. Funny that you did the same. Actually my respect for RBs musical inspiration grew after that. He definately must have been inspired by Lazzarus. It cannot be a coincidence. What do you think? It fits into my impression of him as just a bit suicidal.
Thanks for bringing this song up, I found it this afternoon and have been enjoying it all day.
I have a program called "AC97 Audio Configuration" it has a sound effect section, where you can set it to simulate differnt types of rooms. If you have that program or something like it, you can set it to "stone corridor" or "sewer pipe" or any of the high echo settings and it sounds very much like it did in the film.
Robbie does seem to have this 'Ive got everything, but at the same time, nothing' feel about him.
It must be awful having the success he has but still not being happy, tho I dont think he would not top himself.
He likes ballads so maybe he puts more work into them.
I wish he'd cover the song and dress up as Buffalo Bill in the video.
Im sure this has been said before but I watched Married to the Mob for the first time at the weekend.
Goodbye horses is on in the background in one scene, then I realised the film was made by Demme.
Apart from the obvious, what is his fascination with this song?
Also I discovered a feature on my mobile phone which allows me to record things and set them a my ring tone.
After trying things out I have finally realised the only thing it should be is that scene in SOTL with goodbye horses in the background and Buffalo Bill talking to himself.
