Help identify a song!

  1. Dec 17, 2009 #1
    Ok, so this is way outside what is normally posted on this forum, but I am desperately trying to identify a song and I could use the help of a crowd.

    The piano/synth/organ riff in this song reminds me so much of something that I am 99% sure it is stolen, but I cannot for the life of me remember where I have heard it (or something very similiar).

    So far I have ruled out:

    "Iron Butterfly - in a gadda da vida" ()
    "Giorgio Moroder - Tears" ()
    The theme song from the movie phantasm ()

    I'm thinking it is either from a horror movie, or a sixties rock band, but those might very well be red herrings.

    So, anyone have a clue? I'm going insane here.

    Sounds a little bit like Jon Lord in Child in Time. I don't mean the riff is copied exactly, just the general sound.

    Organ Donors...funny.

    The monotonous phrase reminds me of the bridge in "Tom Sawyer" from Rush, just slower.

    The rythm part sounds like Axel F - Beverly Hills Cop. The guy looks like the observer from Fringe.

    oooo oooo

    It sounds a LOT like the Castlevania (NES) theme song.

    This is a rock version, but at like 8s if you slowed it down like 200% it might be close.


    edit: I had to look up that song because it was awesome, and the original version on Endtroducing... is only like 2min long. What version is that?
