In honor of the great actor, I give you this clip:
That song is now in your head for the rest of the day. You’re welcome.
The clip is from an Australian film called The Return of Captain Invincible and the song was composed by Richard O’Brien (most of you who have seen The Rocky Horror Picture Show know him as Riff Raff, though maybe not all of you know that he wrote The Rocky Horror Picture Show). And let’s be honest, even if you knew nothing about theory or composition, we can all probably hear O’Brien’s very distinctive style in this song.
Christopher Lee was a classically trained bass, for what it’s worth. For other trivia, he was also fluent in five languages (and could get by in three more). Lee was also a trained fencer.
He did some cool stuff, and I loved his films.
