It's hard to imagine that porn movie scores could be of any interest. You have to go quite far back in time in order to find surprisingly sophisticated "porn music". In the world of gay pornography, the late 70s and early 80s are an interesting era when it comes to music scores. Disco was still very popular of course and it was still used a lot but there was also a whole range of different moods out there. Being gay was not just about partying, it was also about being an outcast, living with forbidden compulsions... And I think is is what partly explains the use of much darker music in some gay films back then, including quite interesting electronic music. Of course, the vibe differs a lot from one movie to the other, but movies like "Turned On" (1982) or "Games" (1983) (both featuring legendary porn star Al Parker featured on the artwork) have some of the most interesting music I've ever encountered in film. Slow paced, very spacey, the music is so intriguing, I just felt compelled to share it. And by doing a bit more research, I came across a variety of scores that I thought would make a great mix. So here's the result, hope you enjoy it.
Keep in mind that the music comes from film tape transfered onto VHS tape later digitized to web format videos... hence the poor sound quality!
Finally, I'd like to point out that the majority of the pornstars featured in the porn films included in this mix died of AIDS in the late 80s and early 90s. I'd like to encourage you to donate to the AIDS Research Alliance in the hope of finding a permanent cure for the virus: http://aidsresearch.org/donate/
