Dream Weapons present: SILENT AS THE GRAVE C60

What do you know it seems I had time for one more mix this month after all! While collecting songs for Sounds in the Night I sort of made an additional soundtrack-like mix without really noticing. These 23 tunes are selected from a long list of instrumentals that were too moody to fit in between the songs on my slightly more festive Halloween mix, posted earlier this month. Silent as the Grave is filled with the wonderfully eerie melodies that has made me fall more in love with 1960-1980’s horror/giallo moviescores than the actual horror/giallo movies of the era (sorry moviebuffs). To me music doesn’t get more beautiful than this. At least not right now while typing and listening through before posting  -Moahaha
Btw: Half the selection is actually Library/Production Music. And as long as the mood felt right, I haven’t taken into consideration what kind of movie genre the films these tracks were lifted from. But as you can see by the titles themselves, they are primarily from the correct genres anyway. 

1 Renato Anselmi - Oracolo
2 Enrico Simonetti - Arance Amare
3 Franco Piana - Magician
4 Nico Fidenco - The Dark Side of the Soul II
5 Alessandro Alessandroni - Ritratto

7 Gino Peguri - Odhilia
8 Pierre Porte - Theme 1
9 Giovanni Cristiani - The Blue Mountain
10 Brian Bennett - Blueprint for Murder
11 Lacerenza Michele - Fuga Notturna

12 Stelvio Cipriani - Mary's Theme
13 Manfred Hubler & Sigfried Schwab - Necronomania
14 José Pharos - Ghost March

16 Jean Bouchety - Pumping Heart I
17 Frank Reidy & Eric Allen - Distant Horizon
18 Oronzo De Filippi - Magia
19 Hermann Kopp - Drunk

Dream Weapons present: SOUNDS IN THE NIGHT C60

Well hello darkness, my old friend. A spooky All Hallow’s Eve-mix that doesn’t set out to actually scare you. Haunting in a comforting sort of way, and more like watching a vintage horror movie that’s not genuinely frightening to us anymore. Quite a few truly wonderful songs here. A little doom and gloom for the whole family to enjoy -Moahaha

Btw: This mix will have to do for all of October, I’m afraid. There will just be a lot of stuff going on in my life in the next couple of weeks and months. Mostly good stuff though:)
