Such a great score. At times evoking creepy 50's monster movies, evoking building tension and culminating epic cinematic glory.
John Addison created perhaps the most strikingly effective and exciting score of his career when he tackled Strange Invaders. In keeping with the challenge of writing music for a science fiction tale that tips its hat to both ’50s fodder and ’70s class, Addison composed a score that acknowledges both the dramatic sensibilities of the movie and the smiles in between. Not an easy feat for a composer but one Addison accomplished with seeming ease, courtesy his background in scoring assignments both comedic and dramatic. This is lively, fun music, offering both melodic interest and tones of serious intent. The film producers apparently were quite happy with the end result, too. In a rare turn for film scores, they used almost all of the music Addison wrote for the picture and almost always in the places he intended.
