Voyage of the Damned (1976) soundtrack

Post by Heritageboy » 04 Jun 2006 18:06

[Topic entitled "Voyage of the Damned - Info Required" renamed by the music section host, Ivan Ž.]

Greetings all, first post here. Most impressed with the info on this site - keep up the good work!
I have a question which is bugging me... I've been all over the Internet but cannot find the answer. In the film a number of the officials (SS?) escorting the refugees start singing a catchy marching song, and it starts to upset the passengers a bit(culminating in the Captain stopping them). Question is, what's the title of the song they're singing?

Help gratefully received! Thanks.

Hello, Heritageboy

The thing is: there's no such scene in the movie, you mixed things up. The song you're looking for is the "Horst-Wessel-Lied", which appears at the beginning of the movie (around 5 min), during a scene with Stormtroopers beating two men up, and then again about 20 min later, when the captain interrupts a small group of men singing it on his ship, in an empty hall.

Cheers,
Ivan
