"Rome, Italian Style" Track of the Day: Barry Adamson, "The Big Bamboozle"

Here we see Barry Adamson hanging out inside the Red Room from Twin Peaks.
Song: "The Big Bamboozle" by imaginary soundtrack producer Barry Adamson
Released: 1995
Why's it part of the "Rome, Italian Style" playlist?: Adamson's "Big Bamboozle" crime-jazz instrumental is so seamy-sounding it would have been perfect as music during Kiss Me Deadly (a classic noir that, by the way, finally got the Criterion treatment on Blu-ray and DVD this summer).

This is the weirdest place to run into a homeless chick--or a high-on-Ecstasy Anne Heche.
I like "The Big Bamboozle" so much that when I edited together episodes of A Fistful of Soundtracks: The Series, I frequently used it as an instrumental bed for segments where I spoke.
