Blue Oyster Cult! As promised, here are some creepy classics from the oyster boys. First up, a great favourite in our household, a song we play every Halloween, “Harvester of Eyes.”
Second, as anticipated by Lisa in the comments yesterday, “Joan Crawford.” This is a fan video made from real clips of Joan Crawford, which I like much better than the official music video (even though that featured zombie schoolgirls; that sounds cooler than it turned out to be in execution).
And last, but far from least: “Godzilla.”
Happy Halloween, everybody!

I love Seraphina, but I don’t love your music tastes. I somehow always associated Seraphina and her playing with classical music- maybe Bach?
Heh. I have rather eccentric and broad musical tastes, certainly. I like classical music as well, and early music, both of which were more instrumental to the music writing in the novel. I can try to include those more often here, but I tend to write about whatever is catching my fancy at the moment. This is silly Halloween stuff, nothing more.
Say what you want, but Lars is totally a metalhead.
I don’t think there’s a Blue Oyster Cult song that’s more Halloween than ‘The Siege and Investiture of Baron Von Frankenstein’s Castle at Weisseria’ (off the Imaginos album).
I love that album! I tend to think of it as a unit, though, and not separate songs, but you’re right, that’s a good one.
Just finished your book and I loved it. Came to your site to say Thank You! And I think you might like this: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nNmr_JVgMHA
I live on an island, my sheep ran for mayor, and of course she needed a triumphant music video. Surprisingly (sadly) not enough people recognize the song we used.
Laughing super hard! That’s AWESOME (and exactly my sense of humour, too)! Did she win, though?
She didn’t win, but we told her she did. Every once in a while we ask her to make an important decision about something so she doesn’t become suspicious.
