“Kill me gently with her song” – Roberta Flack (1972/1996): This song dates back to the 70s, but in the 90s a remixed version came out and went number in the US dance charts. This plays out while Deena and the gang visit Sam in the hospital.
“Sweet Jane” – Cowboy Junkies (1988): This is a cover of the song written by Lou Reed in the 70’s. He plays while the band washes Sam’s blood, Josh kisses Kate and Deena and Sam reconciles.
“Hey” – Pixies (1989): The mixtape Deena gives Sam is called “There must be a devil between us”. This happens to be lyrics in this song and is played as the two girls cuddle towards the end of the movie.
“Shit, I would like to be your lover” – Sophie B. Hawkins (1992): Using this song while Josh enviously admires his crush Kate is perfection.
“The fear of the dark” – Iron Maiden (1992): Using this heavy metal song during Josh’s online chat session in the Shadyside Killers chat group adds a sinister vibe to the conversation about evil in Shadyside.
“Ramp” – Radiohead (1992): This one is categorized as one of the ’90s slacker anthems. Used while Deena is on the bus listening to music, possibly a reflection of her feelings of being dumped by her ex.
“Insane in the Brain” – Cypress Hill (1993): This song has stood the test of time, and most music fans know at least the catchphrase of it “Insane in the membrane”. Unhealthy Spirit. ”This song is played as Deena gets on the bus for the football game.
“Gz and Hustlas” – Snoop Dogg (1993): You cannot feature songs from the 90s and NOT include a Snoop Dogg song. This song plays as the killer attacks Kate and Simon while they are babysitting.
“Closer” – Nine Inch Nails (1994): Anyone who is familiar with this song can assume that by using this song to start the movie, the creators are letting everyone know about the tone of the movie. This song plays during the mall murder scene.
“Machinehead” – Bush (1994): As Josh walks through the halls of his school, it’s a great way to present an incredible song by Bush, a staple band from the ’90s.
“Sour Times” – Portishead (1994): Featuring a song by a trip-hop band is a great way to showcase this genre created in the 90s. The lyrics to this song “Because Nobody Loves Me, It’s True.”
Not Like You, ”is played as Deena watches all of the school teens kissing in the hallways. It was right after she wrote her hateful note to her ex.
“The Day I Tried to Live” – Soundgarden (1994): Another great rock band from the 90s that deserves to be presented. While this song is playing, Josh, through headphones, is chatting online about the murders. He doesn’t hear the commotion as Sam attacks Deena.
“Only happy when it rains” – Garbage (1995): Using that creepy alternative rock song while Deena writes a hateful note to her ex is genius. The whole message of the song is a bit ironic about the angst of alternative rock, express the theme of all your emotions.
“Thursday” – 99 Contes (1995): When Deena calls Sam’s house after the accident, this song plays quietly in the background. The lyrics are a bit foreshadowing with the lyrics “I was riding with the beast, which took my love away.”
“More human than human” – White Zombie (1995): It seems like most of the songs played during Josh’s scenes are rock songs, which is cool for the character. Including a song by White Zombie, especially their most popular song, is a great nod to a great hard rock band from the 90s. This song plays once while Josh plays video games and again during the end credits.
“Firestarter” – Prodigy (1996): Electric punk / dance music sets the tone as children set traps for the witch’s henchmen.
“Your wife” – White Town (1997 🙂 This song plays when the kids meet Nurse (B) Eddy. White Town is a one-man band, and this song is their wonder.
“Schools Out” – Alice Cooper 1972: Ending the film with that ’70s song, while showing off clips from the upcoming film, is a great segway in what will quite possibly be another amazing soundtrack for the second film. This one is out of order of its release date as it will most likely be featured in Street of Fear Part 2: 1978.
The soundtrack of Street of Fear Part 1: 1994 is outstanding, and you can listen to it on Spotify.
