Hello Again, ‘Goodbye Horses’

Silence of the Lambs Details You May Have Missed

The beautiful song that Buffalo Bill plays while dancing around in his robe, “Goodbye Horses,” also appears in Married to the Mob, the film Jonathan Demme made prior to Silence of the Lambs.

It appears in a scene in which Michelle Pfeiffer’s character is wearing a robe. Perhaps Buffalo Bill has seen Married to the Mob, and Pfeiffer is the kind of woman he would like to become? That feels too self-referential for Demme, but who knows.
