The soundtrack to the 1979 cult movie The Warriors features Barry De Vorzon’s ominous instrumental score interweaved with dark disco and foreboding funk. This mixture perfectly sets the tone for a comic book-esque storyline about New York City gang warfare of the late ‘70s. The anxiety-riddled “Theme From ‘The Warriors’” opens with heavy electric guitar riffs filtered through an undulating phaser effect as menacing synth lines are chased by steadily gaining drumbeats. Mandrill’s rare soul-funk track “Echoes In My Mind” is easily the album’s smoothest jam and they couldn’t have picked a better tune at the time to help characterize the deadly all-female gang The Lizzies than Genya Ravan’s “Love Is a Fire.” Even though the most intimidating gang, The Baseball Furies, got taken out a little too easily in the film, De Vorzon’s “Baseball Furies Chase” recalls the panic of the pursuit with plodding rhythms and pulsing synthesizers.
the best cult clasic ever
not only is the warriors one of the best cult classic movies and one of the best movies in general, it is also the best video game i have ever purchased. these songs are from the movie and the game. if you are looking for the intro to the warriors video game song, its baseball furies chase. they are also making a remake of the warriors that will be realesed in 2006. this is a great album. i definitly recomend buying it!
The best, hands down
What more can you ask of a soundtrack. it has everything, and if you have seen the movie, the songs bring back such strong memories. the game is one of my faves. i didnt want it to end, ever. easily the best 9.90 i have ever spent.
This has it all.... all the great music from Barry Vorzon and all the other memorable hits from the cult classic movie. It brings back such great memories, this is a must have for anyone who is a fan of the movie, and the equally amazing video game.
