Horror scores are wicked hot right now. Especially ’80s ones in extremely limited numbers. Who knows, next month, some obscure label could release a limited edition 7″ splatter color vinyl release of The Fat Boys’ “Are You Ready for Freddy?” I mean no disrespect – I’m a collector myself, I know what that addiction is like.
But if you’re cool visiting scores of your favorite flicks online, check out these videos of Italian pianist and composer Mario Mariani. In the videos below, he absolutely crushes Elfman’s Beetlejuice and Scissorhands themes, as well as Herrmann’s iconic Psycho score, reinventing it as an icey jazz number.
We’ve all heard these tunes a hundred times before, but it’s super sexy to see a pro reinterpret them in an exciting, memorable way. I don’t know about you, but when I hear a “cover” song, I wanna hear the artist make it his own. Mariani is the perfect example! Enjoy!
