Although previous versions had popular doo-wop songs on the soundtrack, for the seven-minute, 1979 version of this film, Anger decided to use the catchy but hyper-obscure 1976 song "It Came in the Night" by the UK band A Raincoat. The song was released as a single only and is not on the only A Raincoat album "Digalongamacs". It was written by band leader Andy Arthurs and was used in the film without his knowledge or permission.
