Music to Make Horror Movies By: Michael Parks

Michael Parks Tusk

He was marketed as the ‘60s heir to such rebels as James Dean and Marlon Brando. Despite multiple credits, the truly eclectic Michael Parks didn’t really find true fame until a role in From Dusk to Dawn revitalized him for a new generation, though.

Parks, who passed away at the age of 77 on May 9th (2017), also recently did amazing, soulful work in such genre projects as We Are What We Are and Tusk. As many potential heartthrobs before him, Parks released a number of albums in the early ‘70s, as well. Although, his quiet country and folk anthems will probably have a more enduring resonance than the pop styles of so many cute one hit wonders that came before and after him.

Nicely, Long Lonesome Highway, perhaps his best known number, seems to have a particular meaning now as he, quietly and peacefully, goes on his final, most enduring journey.

Music to Make Horror Movies By: Madeline Bell

Madeline-Bell

She’s a Queen! Perhaps overshadowed by friends such as Dusty Springfield and Elton John, the super cool Madeline Bell still provided tons of silky and soulful tunes to Brits hungry for such smooth stylings in the ’60s… and beyond!

Her horror roots are tangled up in rock history, as well. Bell worked with Led Zeppelin’s John Paul Jones on the soundtrack of Michael Winner’s horror thriller Scream for Help. But, as evidenced by her cool take on I’m Gonna Leave You, this divine creature needs no assistance when telling a cool jerk to take a hike!

Today, Bell is still bringing audiences to their knees at http://madelinebell.com.

Music to Make Horror Movies By: Nancy Sinatra

She defined an entire generation with a giddy sneer, a charming pout, some (fine, fine) tunes and…those (almost living, breathing) boots!

The superlative Nancy Sinatra also gave it her all in a number of teen comedies and genre films including Get Yourself a College Girl and The Wild Angels. Nicely, 1966’s fun The Ghost in the Invisible Bikini featured a number of silly supernatural happenings and appearances from such horror stalwarts as Boris Karloff and Basil Rathbone.

Looking frisky and fabulous, Nancy also contributed Geronimo, a fun tune for that project, as well.

Currently, the passionate Sinatra is always creating a happening at https://www.facebook.com/NancySinatra and www.nancysinatra.com.
