John Murphy – In The House, In A Heartbeat (2002)

YouTube – Amazon – iTunes

Liverpool-born John Murphy composed much of the score for Danny Boyle’s 28 Days Later. Featuring just once in the movie, ‘In the House, In a Heartbeat’ is its standout track. It would be reused three times in the sequel, a 100 times in a Peugeot 206 ad, a 1,000 times in a Strongbow ad and ad infinitum in the current Louis Vuitton one. The sound has a Radiohead-like post rock quality… the build-up, some distorted guitars and an electronic melody. It’s suitably sinister; one ‘youtuber’ comments “It makes you wanna just go outside in the rain and just stand there with a bloody sword and a hood on.”
