The song that plays on the remake’s website is a remix of “Song to the Siren” by Tim Buckley. The first live performance of it was on The Monkees TV show in 1967. The song has been covered by several bands, but the one that was mixed for the website is performed by the band Cocteau Twins. It appears on two “This Mortal Coil” compilation albums produced by 4AD records. The two albums it appears on are “Sixteen Days – Gathering Dust” (1983) and “It’ll End in Tears” (1984). The interesting part is that the cover of “Sixteen Days” has a house on it that resembles a mirror image of The Family House from the original TCM. Here’s a link with the two covers: Here's a few of the slaughterhouse, which is a real meat company called Taylor Meat Co.
