Song of the Week: "Faust"

From one of my all time favorite flicks, Phantom of the Paradise, whose star, William Finley, passed on yesterday. Excellent Paul Williams soundtrack to this Brian De Palma flick.

One of my all-time favourite albums was the soundtrack to Phantom of the Paradise. My best friend had it on vinyl and we played it over and over again on a portable record player in his back yard. I hadn't seen the movie but he had. This was before home video and so I had to wait for it to come on television on night before I finally put it all together.

Sad that William Finlay passed away.

One of those trippy, bizarre, cool 70's films that I had forgotten existed. I seem to recall loving it.

This was one of those classics I discovered when I first had my own television and crammed all the pop culture I could into my already busy life. I miss those days.

I have the soundtrack memorized.
