Name That Tune

Those hard-to-place songs from commercials, movies, and TV shows

Who says horror movies have no socially redeeming value? The trailer for ''The Texas Chainsaw Massacre'' resurrects the haunting ''Song to the Siren,'' recorded in 1998 by Liz Fraser and Robin Guthrie of the Cocteau Twins, whose darkly ethereal pop made the Goth kids swoon back in the '80s. If there's new interest in the remastered albums the band recently released, credit Leatherface with generating the buzz.
