Friday Song: Tubular Bells by Mike Oldfield
It seemed the natural thing to do. Culminate my Exorcist week with the iconic instrumental so thoroughly associated with the film. A non-vocal tune that would equally impact the Top 40 pop chart like only a handful from the surrounding decades. No one seems to produce this art form in this day and age. Sure, I’ve highlight one from way back, and the 80s were more loaded than usual (Top Gun, St. Elmo’s Fire, Chariot’s of Fire). Still, none of those came from a horror film or carried the weight of a movie like Mike Oldfield’s did. To this very day, in point of fact.
