Who wants to hear the 1979 disco version of the Alien theme?

We do appreciate some disco insanity on this here site, so here's Nostromo's remix of the Alien theme. It takes all the cosmic dread out of Jerry Goldsmith's original score and turns it into a keyboard party!


For more science fiction disco insanity, see...

- Nostromo's remix of The Black Hole.
- This superhero-filled Brazilian variety show.
-Koto's remixes of Back to the Future, Star Wars, MacGyver, and (among many things) Airwolf.
- Anything by Meco. Seriously, fucking anything.
-The Splash Band's 1984 John Carpenter remix album (1, 2, 3, 4, 5).

For a minute I was afraid this was a genuine 1979 recording by Meco, on par with the Alien Kenner toy line as a serious marketing fuck-up. But I gotta admit, it's actually kinda catchy (but I loooooooove the Goldsmith score anyway).

On the other hand, I never liked James Horner's Aliens score much, so maybe some sort of hip-hop remix would improve it.
