Goodbye Horses

source

"Goodbye Horses" was released as a single in 1991 together with the b-side song "White Lines" when it became more noticeably featured in Jonathan Demme's film "Silence Of The Lambs" as the background music to Buffalo Bill's self-admiring dance in front of his mirror.

The original version was released in 1988 by the artist Q Lazzarus who is a black female vocalist from the USA.
Before she was discovered as a singer she worked as a taxi driver in New York.

In an Eastern philosophy "horses" are symbolic/representative of the 5 senses - the things that keep us tied to the physical/material plane of existence. When you can transcend the limitations of these senses and achieve a higher level of consciousness, you are leaving the "horses" behind - "flying over them."
