Subject: RE: music from the film 'the wicker man'?
I liked the soundtrack for Dead Man immensely. Different strokes for different folks, I guess...

It has long been a conceit of film scoring that the music need not match or even be inspired by the time period the film's narrative is set in...that said, since The Wicker Man was set in the 1970s, why should it have a purely "traditional" soundtrack? This defies the logic of both arguments.
