    55 - MacKenna's Gold

    "Old Turkey Buzzard"

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8Ehrz...e_gdata_player

    A different version of this is heard in:
    Incredible Kung Fu Mission (a.k.a., Kung Fu Commandos)

    For comparison, here is the opening credits for Incredible Kung Fu Mission:

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DfOZK...e_gdata_player

    Unfortunately, AFAIK, there isn't any info on the source of this second, somewhat enigmatic, version. It's also different from the instrumental version on the MacKenna's Gold soundtrack.

    59 - The Blood Beast Terror (1967)*

    Music Suite (by Paul Ferris)

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nMl5Ncvc0Rk&sns=em

    Music and cues from these tracks are familiar in countless late-70s and early-80s Shaw Brothers KF films, including:
    Shaolin Abbot
    House of Traps
    Shaolin Mantis
    The Magnificent Ruffians
    The Rebel Intruders (a.k.a., Killer Army)
    The Daredevils (a.k.a., Magnificent Acrobats; a.k.a., Shaolin Daredevils)
    The Kid with the Golden Arm
    The Five Superfighters
    Invincible Kung Fu (a.k.a., Ruthless Revenge; a.k.a., Two Tricky Kids)**
    And many others...

    *restored with a new link.

    **this is the only film on the list that isn't a Shaw Brothers production.

    64 - Mad Max

    Main Title

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2lqFQ...e_gdata_player

    Heard in:
    Legendary Weapons of China
    Masked Avengers
    Bloody Parrot

    And countless other Shaw Bros films...

    This track is heard in countless Shaw films. I'm going strictly on memory with these, so I can't name any other titles offhand at the moment, only that to me, the sound evokes images of Ching/Qing troops amassing, and/or surrounding the good guys.

    66 - Dawn of the Dead (1978)

    Soundtrack score suite

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NSemq...e_gdata_player

    The part starting at 1:04 is heard in:
    The Dragon, the Hero (a.k.a., Dragon on Fire)

    Sinestre

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wjWq4...e_gdata_player

    This is heard in several Shaw Brothers films, perhaps mostly in some of the Chang Cheh-directed Venoms films. For example:
    The Flag of Iron

    Mask of Death

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dnZSY...e_gdata_player

    This track is also heard in Shaw films, definitely some Venoms films, but I can't name any at the moment.

    The original Dawn of the Dead soundtrack was scored by the Italian rock band Goblin, but interestingly enough, several of the tracks used in the movie which were listed as "unreleased incidental music" are actually from the De Wolfe music library. The De Wolfe library is the same source of much of the music used in Shaw Brothers films.
