Q Lazzarus Was born in 1955. He's an American singer, best known as a one hit wonder for the 1988 song "Goodbye Horses", which was featured in Married to the Mob, The Silence of the Lambs (the Buffalo Bill song), Clerks II (imitating Silence of the Lambs), Lakai Footwear's Fully Flared, Rockstar's videogame Grand Theft Auto IV, EA's videogame Skate 3, and TV shows Family Guy (also imitating Silence of the Lambs) and Nip Tuck. The music and lyrics of the song were written by William Garvey. It was originally recorded by Q Lazzarus in 1988, but later re-released as a single in 1991, with a greater duration, as a result of its appearance in Silence of the Lambs. The infamous scene in which the track plays has garnered it the popular nickname "The Buffalo Bill Song".
Q Lazzarus appeared in the 1986 film "Something Wild" performing "The Candle Goes Away" and the 1993 film Philadelphia performing "Heaven" from the Talking Heads album Fear of Music. She also contributed music to the 1996 underground film "Twisted".
Q Lazzarus is known for having a husky contralto voice. Before she was discovered as a singer, she worked as a taxi driver in New York City. The band dissolved at some point before 1996. Apart from Q, Mark Barrett and songwriter William Garvey, nothing is publicly known about the other band members. William Garvey died in August 2009.

mesmerising and terrifying two hours of your life!
The Silence of the Lambs (1988)
The song is notably featured in the 1991 film The Silence of the Lambs during the scene in which serial killer "Buffalo Bill" applies make-up and dances in front of a video camera with his penis tucked between his legs as to give the appearance of a female mons. Originally in the film, Clarice Starling discussed both sheep and horses during the ranch slaughter ordeal; the script was shortened to only include the lambs, but the song remained. The song is not featured on the Silence of the Lambs soundtrack, although it appears on the soundtrack of the 1988 film Married to the Mob, also directed by Jonathan Demme. In 1991, Q Lazzarus released an extended version of Goodbye Horses to capitalize on the success of Silence of the Lambs (and the lack of the song on the motion picture soundtrack).

Dr. Hannibal Lecter. Brilliant. Cunning. Psychotic.
In his mind lies the clue to a ruthless killer.
She must trust him to stop the killer.
