Stuck On Repeat: A Different Kind Of White Zombie Song

Jun 11th, 2007 // 4 Comments

28.jpgOver the weekend, one of your Idolators finally saw 28 Weeks Later–a.k.a. Begbie Goes Bananas–which was much better than we could have possibly ever imagined, and which featured a appropriately brooding post-rock score from John Murphy. Alas, a proper soundtrack has yet to be released, so we had to reach back to the 2003 original for this main title theme, which might be the best zombie-movie song since the mall Muzak in the original Dawn Of The Dead:

John Murphy – In The House/In A Heartbeat [MP3, link expired]

    I was very dissapointed in a way. In the house/in a heartbeat was (apart from debatably granddaddy’s am 180) by far the standout track on the 28 Days Later soundtrack. The team behind 28 Weeks Later seemed to pick up on this and used it every half hour. Part of its appeal in the first film lay in the fact that it was only used once – when they were in the house. Ridiculous.

    …..28 days was ok. I’m glad I checked it out of the library, though, and didn’t pay to see it. This cut was good, though. Very few artists write stuff that really builds like that, these days! The music on that DVD was a good reason to watch all the way through.

    Kudos for posting this incredible song. I actually went and downloaded this particular track from iTunes the day after I saw “28 Weeks Later.” I didn’t really mind that they recycled it so much throughout the film, just because every time you hear the song your tension level goes through the roof. The first 10 minutes of “28 Weeks Later” are one of the most riveting openings to a zombie film…yes, even better than Zack “300″ Snyder’s bravado beginning to the “Dawn of the Dead” remake.
