Can anyone help me identify the intro to this fantastic album?  It's the 1st 1:20 of the piece and is the duet of piano and little girl singing the "la la la" melody.  I know I've heard this melody somewhere else, possibly in a horror film, so think it might be a traditional French folk song or something.

Thanks!

Well...it's the same  melody as Danny Boy, an old Irish folk song. I suppose it's possible that it is also an old French folk melody as well.

Pulsar "Halloween" -- One of the greatest albums ever made. With one of the most eerie and unforgettable covers ever made.
