Okay, you're not going to believe this, but as I was scrolling down, I was listening to an album by Canadian musician Jon Samuel (from the band Wintersleep) that includes a song called The Man Who Fell to Earth. Unfortunately, I wasn't on that particular song at the time my eyes hit this image, but it's close enough for the weird coincidence category.

Too bad it isn't one of the tunes that he's streaming for free at http://www.jonsamuel.ca/

Can anyone identify the piece of music used in the Roeg film, the scene of Buck Henry's lover falling from the window with his barbell, seguing to the shot of Bernie Casey lifting Claudia Jennings out of the swimming pool?

Also: is the version edited for US release in the 70s available on DVD?

As far as I know, the edited version only showed up on VHS.
