Saturday Music to Listen to While Being Consumed by a Gelatinous Red Alien Goo

Burt Bacharach is absolutely one of THE FUTURIST!'s favorite composers of music. This has been made evident in previous Saturday Music posts. Every year THE FUTURIST! has his Back to Bacharach Martini Party and everyone that comes must be in tie and jacket or party dress. It's a blast. Appropriately for SHOCKtober, THE FUTURIST! was shocked to learn that Bacharach wrote the title tune to the Steve McQueen fright film THE BLOB. The tune that accompanies the animated credits is quite catchy and seems so playful and bouncy... it doesn't prepare you for the hi-jinx perpetrated by the gelatinous mass of dark red goo from deep dark outer space that feeds on human flesh. Well, let the fun begin!


from the film THE BLOB (1958)
composed by Burt Bacharach and Mack David

It's quite swinging. Good, old Burt.
