The Fog Soundtrack
Vocal Song Tracks
The soundtrack for this movie is perfect, with a blend of church classical and early 1960's doo-wop and rock. Especially appropriate is the use of Handel's "Halleujah Chorus" and the songs of the early Temptations, Drifters, and, (I believe) Buddy Holly.Update Us

John carpenter seems to put high emphasis on the relation between images and sound, all his films are testaments to the use of soundtrack to enhance mood and atmosphere, here he uses synth to lend an air of impending doom for the Bay's locale.
Particularly when the young boy glimpses a gold coin on rocks on the beach only to see it change into driftwood bearing the ghost ships name.
Also the pounding almost progressive rock that sounds off as the onslaught begins on the church. Title track to Houseman's deadpan voice is immense also, the old man tells the story of the legend of the Fog to a mesmerising atmosphere created by the use of keyboard.
As noted above, Carpenter completely re-created the soundtrack score after he noted that his first effort was "heavy-handed and obvious".Update Us
