Jay Chattaway Ft. Joe Spinell - “Inner Voices“
31 Days of Halloween Music
Today's selection changes direction a little bit away from pop/rock music. I have for your listening pleasure the track "Inner Voices" from the soundtrack to the 1980 cult classic horror film Maniac starring Joe Spinell. The score was composed and performed by Jay Chattaway. It's a classic sounding 80s synth-score, but for the most part not an energetic piece of work. It's much more subtle and spooky as you'll here in a minute. This particular track is very minimal with some deep organs playing and some haunting higher elements moaning throughout. I choose this particular track because it features Joe Spinell in the role of Frank Zito, the titular maniac. The character is a mentally disturbed individual and he's carrying on a conversation with his victims in his head. It gives you some insight into the character in spooky fashion.
