What's the weirdest Song you heard in the Godzilla series?

Postby Lawsford » Mon Jun 11, 2012 2:49 pm

Share what you think is the weirdest song you hear in the Godzilla series, the movie it was in and the scene (unless you have a link to it on youtube)

To me it's the ending theme of Godzilla vs Gigan, I thought to myself "What kind of drugs did the composers use to come up with this?"

Whatever drugs they took to make pretty basic and straight forward Tokusatsu show theme songs, probably.

But the entire score for Smog Monster.

I hate to be generic here, but it hands down goes to the Godzilla's Revenge opening credits theme. It's just so undeniably weird.

I do too, but it just strikes me as a little bit odd.

Weird isn't synonymous with "bad", for the record.

Ebirah: Horror of the Deep has a weird score. It's a giant monster film, but you could listen to the soundtrack and you would be thinking "Surf's up!". I don't dislike it, but it's a rather strange choice for a monster film.

If Godzilla didn't exist and this soundtrack was released as an album, it probably would have been called "This Is The Exact Music You Hear When You See A Group Of Young People That Are Wicked Baked." Which fits that movie pretty much perfectly.

The King Caesar alarm clock song, because it's the most awkwardly performed, filmed, and edited song in the entire series.

I agree wholeheartedly, it's one of those rare cases I like the opening music in the U.S. cut more than the Japanese one. :)

Are we talking about the American release title track? For some reason I love it.

For me the wierdest song i've heard goes to the infamous Jet Jaguar song. I'm just happy MST3K translated for us lol.

I would agree with everyone that says the GODZILLA"S REVENGE opening song is the weirdest.

The opening song is actually by an artist whose name is Ervin Jereb and the song is called "Crime Fiction".

I actually really like both GODZILLA"S REVENGE and the soundtrack to the movie.

Without a doubt the Jet Jagga song in Godzilla vs Megalon.

Right off the top of my head it would be in Godzilla vs. Hedorah!

the song that plays in godzilla vs. the smog monster when godzilla appears for the first time against the red background of the sun. its that silly trombone riff that sounds like clown music. out of everything in the series i can think of, that is the weirdest.

The American dub opening of Godzilla's Revenge. I had seen the film for the first time in over ten years recently, when that played I was like "What the heck..." I like it, it's just very, very strange.

Crime Fiction is decidedly the weirdest, that's part of its charm. The most out of place however, is Godzilla's love theme at the end of The Return of Godzilla. What's up with that pop/romantic song that follows a very gothic and epic score?

Agreed. And it's way too long.

I agree it is unfitting music but I'd still take that over the score from Hedorah.
