I write this blog, humming the horribly catchy theme tune for American Horror Story. Specifically, for its latest incarnation, Freak Show. I’m sure you’re absolutely fascinated to hear, but I place great stock on soundtracks, and the general mood-setting tone of TV series and films.
And it was the theme music — and the credits sequence — which first sucked me into American Horror Story. Throughout each of the series so far it has set the stage as a chilling and surreal preview of the series to come.
There is something different about this series though; the music has changed subtly to a give it a carnival edge, and the freaky freaks of the visuals have less of the dream-like, found-footage-esque sense.
I rather like it. And will be humming it for at least the rest of the day.
