Harold and Maude sample in a song?
March 13, 2005 7:00 PM   Subscribe

I just watched Harold and Maude for the first time in several years. The intense "and there was a blinding flash!! kill!! kill! " monologue by Uncle Victor triggered a synapse in my brain and I KNOW this is sampled somewhere in a song.

I'm not sure of the genre, I'm not sure of anything except that it was used in a subdued manner and to great dramatic effect, and that I will probably not be able to sleep until I happen upon the song again. This could take awhile as I have 15000 mp3s which I listen to randomly. Any ideas?

No ideas. However, that is a totally kick-ass movie. I haven't seen it in a long time; I'm jealous.

Best answer: "Aching Improv #9" by Buzzov-en off of To A Frown samples that.

Holy shit! I just watched it on Friday night for the first time in years as well! But sorry, I don't know the answer to your question....

Seriously? I watched it on Friday night for the first time in years, too. Freaky.

Response by poster: This is some weird Harold and Maude synchronicity going on.

Hominid holy shit you nailed it. Which is fortunate because I don't pull out the Buzzoven very often :). Thank you!!!

Glad I could help. It's rare that my weirdly accurate knowledge of unpleasant music with samples can help anyone!

Perhaps from the film "Alice's Restaurant," in which the reluctant inductee Arlo Guthrie expresses himself similarly when asked why he wants to join the Army?
