Song of the Day #181

Song of the Day: Psycho ("Murder") [audio clip at that link], music by Bernard Herrmann, features the jarring, discordant, nerve-shattering strings that match the rhythmic slashing of crazy killer Norman Bates, played by Anthony Perkins, in this classic 1960 Hitchcock fright-fest. A truly harrowing, brilliant soundtrack.
