This would be a pretty crummy giallo if not for the porn. It would also be a pretty crummy porno without the giallo elements. Whatever the problem is, Play Motel is still a fairly entertaining watch. So entertaining was it, that I grabbed a shitload of music from it. Some of it has dialogue over it, but its Italian so its not too distractive. The music ranges from pop songs by Ray Lovelock that would fit perfectly in chase scenes from the early episodes of Scooby Doo, to some remotely haunting pieces by Ubaldo Conteniello typical of the giallo sound. I wanted to type more about the movie, but my brain is shot.

Queens of Evil is a rather bizarre movie focusing on a drifter's slowly building physical obsession with three hot bitches that are letting him crash at their place. At times, it seems like some sort of propaganda piece for the hippie lifestyle, especially with the end speech, but if everything witnessed is thrown into consideration, its a mess. Don't think too hard and you'll probably enjoy it. One would get the impression that this is a skinflick, but we barely get treated to any female flesh. We see Ray Lovelock's asscheeks more than anything. Whatever. You want tits, go buy some whore.
Three tracks here, each one taken from one of the films love scenes. Some fairly decent background music during most of the movie, but there's just too much dialogue for me to rip it. If anyone can hit me up with the whole soundtrack, that would be sweet. Quality ain't too hot on these songs, but you get the idea.
Trying a different file host as the last one didn't hold on to shit for very long.

Today's post is the title track from Horror Express, a British/Spanish co-production monster starring Christopher Lee, Peter Cushing and Telly Savalas. A rather odd movie that scared the shit out of me many moons ago when I caught it on one of those Saturday afternoon matinees.
According to IMDB, this song was composed by one John Cacavas, whom also worked on a few other Telly Savalas projects. What did Kojak say once, "us greeks have to stick together?". Wouldn't mind getting my hands on the entire soundtrack, if anyone has the hook-up.
P.S - If anyone wants a repost of some of the older shit, just give a holler. Seems things don't have to good of a shelf-life on sendspace.

Just a quick music-less update for now. Seems someone has already gone through the trouble of grabbing all of the Groovie Goolies songs from the DVD. Here be the link, thanks Greg for bringing it to my attention. Go grab it and rock out with your socks on.
Also, was wondering if anyone had any info on the background music for the old Scooby Doo cartoons. Was that shit ever released? Its still gotta be on hand somewhere, as long pieces of music without dialogue or sound effects were used for the recent DVD releases as well as commercials on Cartoon Network. Wouldn't mind getting my hands on that shit.

If I had more time on my hands, more motivation and was drunk a lot less often, I'd take the time to rip every goddamn lite-psych/pop song from the Groovie Goolies boxset, which would be a lot of songs considering there's 2 per episode. However, I'm enjoying my destructive lifestyle a bit too much, so you're gonna have to either do it on your own or settle for the one track I am posting today. "When I Grow Up" by the Mummies and the Puppies, which is the same musicians as every other song on the show. I heard it once and its been my favorite muthafuckin' song ever since. You can find the video on youtube if you look hard enough as well, but this one right here is for the car.

Wasn't planning on making a post today, but the end theme to Dead Of Night just kinda jumped out at me. Kinda reminds me of a piece I heard years ago called Tigerbomb, hell knows who the composer was. I haven't been able to hunt it down.
The movie is an anthology based on short stories by Richard Matheson. Seeing as how the stories are all around 21 minutes long, I'm guessing this was filmed as a pilot in hopes of turning it into a television program. The second story, "No Such Thing As Vampires" was very familiar. Positive I've seen it before. Fuck knows where.
This track comes from the end credits, composed by Robert Cobert (hahaha) and clocks in at under one minute.

Feast of Satan is a pretty standard giallo, with the whole telepathic-mind-control bit thrown in for good measure. Where is Satan? I dunno. Where's his feast? Ask Satan when you see him. Regardless, its a fairly decent Italian mystery-thriller.
The track enclosed today is from the opening credits. I believe it was written by Carlo Savina, for you completists. It fits the title of the movie, but not so much the movie itself. Think of the opening to "April" by Deep Purple, if you fresh-cuts are old enough to remember that shit.
