VARIOUS ARTISTS - THE RETURN OF THE LIVING DEAD SOUNDTRACK (1985)


To be honest, I'm not really a huge fan of any one band on the Return of The Living Dead OST (not even Roky Erickson--please direct your indignant hate mail to illogicalcontraption@yahoo.com), butt ass a hole, the whole thing just WORKS, probably just because of all the fond memories I have personally attached to this beyond-stellar 1985 masterpiece of a film. I mean, zombie movies just don't get much better than this. Real talk.



Track list:

1. Surfin' Dead - The Cramps
2. Partytime (Zombie Version) - 45 Grave
3. Nothing For You - TSOL
4. Eyes Without A Face - The Flesheaters
5. Burn The Flames - Roky Erickson
6. Dead Beat Dance - The Damned
7. Take A Walk - Tall Boys
8. Love Under Will - The Jet Black Berries
9. Tonight (We'll Make Love Until We Die) - SSQ
10. Trash's Theme - SSQ

FUCK YOU FOR NOT LOVING ROKY.

I can remember seeing this on picture disc back in the '80s. I never bought it due to the price: some extortionate sum of maybe $15-$20! That was a lot of money for a 13 year old!

This movie played at a local drive-in all summer in 1985, I must have seen it 30, 40 times. It was an awesome drive-in, too: total anarchy, a complete lack of security or anything resembling supervision. We would just dump ice in the trunk of my old Dodge Aspen and toss the beer right in, the 80's were fun like that.

YOU WANNA PAAARRTAAAAAY?
IT'S PAAAAWWTYYY TIME!
Not a day goes by that the image of the boneman bonering out of the ground and the above message screeches through the audio doesn't creep into my brainwaves and get me ready for the rest of the day. It's like instant memory caffeine.

still have an original pressing of the soundtrack on CD that I had signed by Linnea Quigley at a convention back in 1999!
