Come in Number 51, Your Time Is Up

"Come in Number 51, Your Time Is Up" is the final track of the movie Zabriskie Point´s soundtrack album. Made by the British progressive rock band Pink Floyd, it is a remake of their single B-side "Careful with That Axe, Eugene". It has more elements - whispering, a choir - than the original version had. Also Roger Waters' screaming is louder. It's a complete instrumental; unlike the original "Careful with That Axe, Eugene", "Come in Number 51, Your Time Is Up" doesn't feature the spoken words "Careful with that axe, Eugene", and is in the key of E minor instead of the original D minor. In the original film, it plays at the end during an explosion sequence filmed in slow motion. In the booklet of the soundtrack's reissue, David Fricke writes: "Come In Number 51, Your Time Is Up” is a cryptically titled remake of the Floyd's volcanic 1968 B-side ”Careful With That Axe, Eugene.” But its bonfire sound — all roaring guitars, crashing drums, and death-throe screaming — is the perfect complement to the movie's cataclysmic finish."
