Hello... soylentgreen, here.  Long time lurker, first time poster.

I've always gotten a thrill from BadMovies, yet never even noticed the forum.  Though, I'm learning nowadays every site has an attendant forum.  And this one is hilarious.  I've got thirty some-odd years of bad movies under my belt and a keen interest to group hug about I look forward to joing you fine folks here.

As it turns out though, I've just been spending alot of arguably better spent manhours revisiting my love for DAWN OF THE DEAD(not a bad movie, of course).  Anyway I've stumbled across something that I'd never solved.

If you don't know the film,(in the smallest nutshell possible) four people hole up in a Pittsburgh mall besieged by zombies and after a bit things go very badly.  Anyway, at one point, the protagonists are finally slipping into the inevitable rigor mortis that comes with having everything, yet it all being meaningless in the post zombie apocalypse world.  As they wile away cloistered in the mall, one of them pops on an album.

It's a solo guitar piece, classical I believe(sounds like Fernando Sor to me).  While very familiar, I just can't place the sucker.

I uploaded the scene to youtube and it's there in all it's reformatted  Hatred  glory.  Feel free to take a gander and maybe, just maybe help out a fellow genre lover in need.

I call the scene
"Mark 8:36" Small | Large

Thanks...and I look forward to with you souls again.

Welcome aboard.

I did a quick check of the DVD after watching the clip (you are right, it seems like I know it too - might just be the style though).  The only two entities credited for the soundtrack are The Goblins and Dario Argento.  Perhaps it is something provided by the latter?

Hey Andrew,
  Thanks for the greeting. 

...and oh, if it could only be that easy, but no...Romero was superfond of using source music(the extended cut of DAWN is literally wall-to-wall with it!).  He cherry picked the Goblin music, ending up using about 60% of what they wrote, for the domestic release.  While I greatly appreciate Argento as a filmmaker, and he and realtives did put up a bit of dough for DAWN, I could never really get his name being linked to Goblin as much as it is in this case.

Anyway, I took the liberty of posting a query on this in a few classical guitar forums(I figured Hey who better, right?)  It appears to be an improv(and a rather pedestrian one at that, if their taste is correct)on an notable, yet anonymous romanza.

Well, it's not square one exactly, but I knew Romero's penchant for pulling musical source cues from all over the place would probably have me running into a brick wall.

Thanks for checking it out though.  I appreciate it greatly.  I'm looking forward to buzzing about the rest of the forum.  And most importantly, keep up the good work.


ps.  I guess this thread can probably be moved to the solved area, I'm just not sure how to do that.
