Alien Day is upon us! As we celebrate this amazing holiday, I decided to have some fun with it! My first post features my favorite usage of an Alien film sample in a song. EBM legends Front 242 have a song called Im Rhythmus Bleiben that uses the Nostromo boot-up sequence sound effect with great success. The original version from the album Front by Front features the sample at around the 1:20 mark, but it’s not my favorite. No, the live version uses the sample with much better effect, as you’ll see/hear below! Enjoy, and welcome to our special #AlienDay edition of Echosynthetic!
Here is the original sound effect from Alien:
