elcome to the Digital Meltd0wn Music Blog. The aim of this blog is to introduce the readers to music that is out of print, commercially unavailable, released under a creative commons license, or with approval by the featured artist. The majority of the music posted here would be considered underground. Don't let that fool you into thinking that the music featured here might be any less enjoyable than that of the mainstream artists you hear on the radio, as this couldn't be further from the truth. Please keep in mind that the majority of the artists that appear on this blog, along with their respective record labels, are not wealthy and need your support. If you enjoy the material that you find here, please support the artists/labels by purchasing their material afterwards. If you are an artist/label that would prefer to have your material removed from this blog, simply leave me a comment, and I would be more than happy to promptly remove the offending post. In addition to running this blog, I also work on a few other projects during my spare time.

Shirley Walker - Black Christmas: Original Motion Picture Score (2006 - Variable Bitrate)

@Strange Ranger: You continue to impress me my friend. Our taste in music seems to overlap quite a bit, at least as far as film scores/soundtracks go, yet you always managed to regularly share material that I don't already have. I love Shirley Walker's music, and it's a real shame that she passed away a few years ago. I was introduced to her music after listening to her score for "Batman: The Animated Series", which blew me away. Her character themes were absolutely amazing. I picked up her score for The Flash animated series after that and was equally impressed.

Needless to say Black Christmas fits in perfectly with our ongoing theme. I would love to see a release, bootleg or otherwise, for a soundtrack/score to the original Black Christmas. I'm not sure who was responsible for composing the music to the original film, but I'll see if I can track anything down. I know that there was at least one track on the "Main Titles For Unreleased Horror Scores" compilation, but I'm not sure if anything exists outside of that collection.

@Zer0_II: I'm glad to be hooking you up with some good tunes, buddy. You're right, we do seem to have an agreement about scores. We probably have some overlapping interests in other genres, too. I'm all over the place and I know you're all over the place since I've been visiting this blog for quite some time now.

I've heard both BTAS and FTAS by Shirley Walker and I concur, they are stunning scores. As for the original Black Christmas, my girlfriend and I watched it again last weekend, and we both noticed that a musical score was conspicuously absent. I didn't realize it the first time I saw the movie probably because I wasn't into film music as much then. These days, whenever I watch something I always pay attention to the music.

@Anonymous: I just tested the link and downloaded the file without a problem. Keep trying, sometimes megaupload has issues.

I double-checked the download link also. It is working just fine. When you say that it "freezes up", do you mean that you are able to start the download, but it stops while you are in the process of downloading, or is the webpage freezing up?
