Top 11 TV and Movie Horror Theme Songs
The Exorcist-"Tubular Bells" by Mike Oldfield
Damn this song is creepy. Maybe by itself it wouldn't have been so bad. Maybe if we weren't exposed to the most horrific movie of all times before hearing "Tubular Bells", then it wouldn't have become the soundtrack of nightmares. But that isn't the case. "Tubular Bells" is what you hear when taking the escalator to Hades. This is what Satan has as the most listened to track on his iPod. Something about the title recalls The Blue Man Group, but that's where the fun ends. You can't hear this melody and not think about Regan MacNeil, that lonely bedroom window and the long, steep staircase just outside it on the street. "Tubular Bells", like the film it accompanies, is horror at its finest.
"The Twilight Zone" Theme by Marius Constant
There was another theme song for "The Twilight Zone" that was written by Bernard Herrmann of Psycho shower scene fame. However, that melody would be replaced by the unmistakable number we're all familiar with today. It doesn't sound like any other song. When you hear it, you know exactly what it is. It's appropriate to sing it whenever we're confronted with a unbelievable situation. It is…"The Twilight Zone". Quite possibly the most iconic of all the stellar theme songs on this list, Constant's unique music combined with Rod Serling's historic voiceover make this one for the ages.
