We’re doing Halloween stuff around the house today so Dave has a Pandora station with Halloween songs playing. It’s astonishing how many of them sound like they belong in the credits of a Quentin Tarantino movie.
For a baseline, here are the opening credits to Pulp Fiction:
And, for comparison, here’s the Munsters theme:
And here’s the Twilight Zone theme (get past the iconic opening chords to hear the Tarantino goodness):
There are countless other Halloween tracks that sound like they got ripped straight out of a Tarantino flick. It’s almost, dare I say, creepy… 😛
But, by far, the scariest song we’ve come across is a kids bop version of The Time Warp from The Rocky Horror Picture Show. For those unfamiliar with Rocky, here’s the number from the movie:
Yeah, it’s not for kids. Richard O’Brien (the first person who sang in the above clip who also wrote the show) wrote the show in part to explore his bisexuality and transgender tendencies. The whole show is overly sexual and uses that to slide in some creepy (if not over-the-top) elements.
Which makes the kids bop version an absolute abomination:
So there you have it ^^. The scariest thing I’ve encountered this Halloween.
For bonus points, here’s mine and Michaelyn’s favorite Halloween song:
Happy Halloween, everybody!
