Alice Cooper – He’s Back (The Man Behind the Mask) (UK 12″)

Posted by DjPaulT on October 13th, 2017

BURNING THE GROUND EXCLUSIVE 1986

Since today is Friday The 13th I thought it would be fun to revive this long dead killer classic buried deep in the BTG vault with a brand new 2017 re-rip remaster. This one was originally posted October 29, 2010.

“He’s Back (The Man Behind the Mask)” is a song by American shock rock musician Alice Cooper. It was released as the lead single from his 1986 album Constrictor, and the theme song of Friday the 13th Part VI: Jason Lives, a slasher film and sixth part of the Friday the 13th film series released in the same year. The song is heard various times throughout the film and in the end credits. Two other songs, “Teenage Frankenstein” (also from Constrictor) and “Hard Rock Summer” (which remained commercially unreleased until 1999) are also featured in the film.

The song features the famous “ki-ki-ki ma-ma-ma” (admittedly in its popular misheard version, “ch-ch-ch, ha-ha-ha”) sound effect, a trademark of the Friday the 13th series.

“He’s Back (The Man Behind the Mask)” was a minor chart success, popular among fans of Cooper’s later work and enthusiasts of slasher films. It has been called “strangely new wave-ish and said to “perfectly enscapulate the Friday the 13th films and the era in which they came to prominence.

The 7” single featured a “live” version of “Billion Dollar Babies” as its B-Side. The 12″ single featured “Billion Dollar Babies (Recorded Live)” as well as a haunting “live” version of “I’m Eighteen”. Both versions were in fact originally recorded in the studio for the Alice Cooper a Paris TV special in 1982 during the Special Forces era, which were remixed in 1986 with crowd noise to resemble “live” recordings.

R.I.P. Tom Petty
October 20, 1950 – October 2, 2017

“Make It Better (Forget About Me)” is a song written by Tom Petty of Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers and David A. Stewart of the Eurythmics. It was released in June 1985 as the third single from Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers’ 1985 album Southern Accents. Musically it is an uptempo number that pays tribute to the Memphis Soul style, with heavy emphasis on horns and funk-inspired rhythm guitar. The music video continues in the Alice in Wonderland motif of “Don’t Come Around Here No More” and riffs on the ‘model annoyed by flying insect with the face of the singer superimposed’ as in the then-recent “You Might Think” video by The Cars.

“Make It Better (Forget About Me)” peaked at #54 on the U.S. Billboard Hot 100 on July 6, 1985 spending eight weeks on the survey.
