It’s Probably Me (by Sting, Michael Kamen, Eric Clapton, and David Sanborn) 
I just heard that Saxophonist David Sanborn passed away. Many may remember his sound from Richard Donner’s Lethal Weapon series, though he also worked with other musicians like David Bowie & Sting. It’s Probably Me is the theme song for Lethal Weapon 3, with a...

Spellbound (by Siouxie and the Banshees) 

My first experience with Siouxie and the Banshees was with “Face to Face” on the Batman Returns score in 1992. Spellbound is another classic of theirs, featured in Neil Marshall’s 2008 action film, Doomsday. The scene itself involves a set of cannibals who have decided to roast one of their prisoners, played by Sean Pertwee (Dog Soldiers). Below is the music video, followed by the Doomsday scene.

Lyrics:

From the cradle bars
Comes a beckoning voice
It sends you spinning
You have no choice

You hear laughter
Cracking through the walls
It sends you spinning
You have no choice

You hear laughter
Cracking through the walls
It sends you spinning
You have no choice

Following the footsteps
Of a rag doll dance
We are entranced
Spellbound

Following the footsteps
Of a rag doll dance
We are entranced
Spellbound
Spellbound
Spellbound, oh, oh, oh

Spellbound
Spellbound
Spellbound
Spellbound

And don’t forget when your elders forget
To say their prayers
Take them by the legs
And throw them down the stairs

When you think your toys
Have gone berserk
And it’s an illusion
You cannot shirk

You hear laughter
Cracking through the walls
It sends you spinning
You have no choice

Following the footsteps
Of a rag doll dance
We are entranced
Spellbound

Following the footsteps
Of a rag doll dance
We are entranced
Spellbound

Spellbound
Spellbound, oh, oh, oh
Spellbound
Spellbound
Spellbound
Spellbound
Spellbound

Following the footsteps
Of a rag doll dance
We are entranced

Following the footsteps
Of a rag doll dance
We are entranced

Entranced
Entranced
Tranced, tranced, tranced
