Original ‘Rosemary’s Baby’ Theme Covered On Accordian

If you haven’t picked up a copy of Waxwork Records’ Rosemary’s Baby vinyl reissue, you don’t know what you’re missing. It’s easily one of the most beautiful and magical listening experiences I’ve had in a while and it’s easily my most played record. The soundtrack, originally composed by Krzysztof Komeda, is haunting but playful, evoking an almost Parisian feel, even though the film is set in New York City.

YouTube user Adam Matlock has just posted an accordion cover of the main theme, which only reinforces my statement about the soundtrack having a Parisian air about it. It’s a truly lovely cover that Matlock fully admits may have some small influences from the Fantomas version.

Seriously though, head over to Waxwork and pick up your copy right here.

    Fantastic Adam! (I also love the Fantomas version of course too!)
