SATAN'S TOY PIANO

One more for Halloween: Twink, The Toy Piano Band, has posted a version of the "Theme To Rosemary's Baby" on his site, and it's a treat, not a trick. Krzysztof Komeda (as Christopher Komida) composed the score to the classic 1968 shocker and died a year later. Coincidence?!

A toy piano might seem an odd choice for a spooky soundtrack theme, but children's instruments have been used in horror scores before, e.g.: a wind-up children's music box set against slightly atonal music = creepy.

And while you're on his "MUSIC" page, be sure to check out the other bonus songs on the bottom of the page: covers of Devo's
all-time classic "Beautiful World," and Harold Faltomeyer's "Axel F."

It's a limited-time offer, probably coming down sometime in early November, so grab it now.

Another weird coincidence with this film is that the director's(Roman Polanski)pregnant wife was murdered during post-production by the Manson family.

Cool song however Twink makes it slightly more creepy then it really was. Mia Farrow gave it a somber loungey style to it.

The Fantoma's version of the song, off the album, Director's cut is also really good. Mike Patton does crazy vocals on it.
