Soul Coughing was one of the MVPs of 90s soundtracks. They featured on both X-Files releases, as well as the surprisingly essential Batman & Robin soundtrack. Their contribution to Songs in the Key of X shows a band perfectly matched with its source material. The often stream of consciousness lyrics of lead singer Mike Doughty could easily have been the paranoid ramblings of a character on the show. While more composed on Unmarked Helicopters, Doughty sinks his teeth into the conspiracy theory stuff, claiming “I know the truth/I know the whole shebang/I know the names of men they had to hang.” The scratchy, droning track sounds like an alien implant or a government attempt at mind control. The band even plays spooky homage by incorporating a snippet of Mark Snow’s score at the end of the song.
