"Music supervisors usually choose existing songs to be used in a movie, apart from the score created for the film. "Goodbye Horses" gained notoriety for its use in Jame Gumb's, um, -dancing- scene in "Silence of The Lambs". Jonathan Demme's music supervisors assembled a good set of tunes. Most of the songs are straight out of MTV "120 Minutes" territory. Before alternative became an obsolete term, these were good examples. Sinead O'Connor's Jump in The River" and New Order's "Bizarre Love Triangle" will yank you right back into your senior year of high school (depending upon your age). "Devil Does Your Dog Bite?" is fun and goofy. The Feelies' "Too Far Gone" has a strong kinship to The B52's.Brian Eno Closes the CD with a soothing, quasi-country lament ("You Don't Miss Your Water"), a reminder of how much variety he has brought to pop music as a musician and producer.As for "Goodbye Horses," it sounds smaller and mellower when not played in Jame Gumb's torture chamber/basement. It's a good dance track with an easy beat. There's a slight mania surrounding this album, mainly because that song is so hard to find. Even if the "Horses" were absent, the soundtrack is a good cross-section of 80's new wave/dance pop."
GOODBYE HORSES COMPARED

"I RECENTLY WON AN AUCTION FOR THE MARRIED TO THE MOB CD WHICH I MAINLY WANTED FOR THE "GOODBYE HORSES" TRACK BY Q. LAZZARUS FROM THE SILENCE OF THE LAMBS JAMES GUMB DANCE ROUTINE. I ALSO RECENTLY PURCHASED THE PSYCHE ALBUM "LEGACY" IN WHICH THE GROUP PSYCHE DID A REMAKE OF THE GOODBYE HORSES SONG. I HAVEN'T SEEN ANY REVIEWS WHICH COMPARED THE TWO GROUPS RENDITIONS OF THIS SONG. ALL I CAN SAY IS THAT THE ORIGINAL BY Q. LAZZARUS IS THE BEST, LIKE MOST ALL ORIGINALS. BUT I MUST SAY THAT THE PSYCHE VERSION IS EXCELLENT. THE SINGER'S VOICE IS VERY SIMILAR TO Q. LAZZARUS BUT PSYCHE'S VOCALS AREN'T AS PRONOUNCED IN VOLUME AND TEND TO BLEND IN MORE WITH THE SONG. PSYCHE TENDS TO MAKE USE OF SYNTHESIZERS MORE IN THE SONG. THE DRUMS ARE PRACTICALLY THE SAME RHYTHM AND BEAT IN BOTH VERSIONS.
MOSTLY, I'M WRITING THIS REVIEW FOR PEOPLE WHO CANNOT GET THEIR HANDS ON THE VERY RARE, HARD TO FIND MARRIED TO THE MOB CD BUT WOULD STILL LIKE TO HAVE A GOOD VERSION OF "GOODBYE HORSES" IN THEIR CD COLLECTION SINCE THE CURRENT ALBUM "LEGACY" BY THE GROUP PSYCHE IS READILY AVAILABLE. YOU CAN EVEN GET IT RIGHT HERE ON AMAZON. THE WHOLE ALBUM IS ACTUALLY VERY GOOD AND PRETTY COOL. DON'T BE AFRAID TO BUY IT. YOU WON'T BE DISSAPPOINTED."
