Amy might not be a vampire... but she most definitely is not human.
3. King Volcano: Bauhaus
The likely choice from Bauhaus would have been Bela Lugosi's Dead. I decided to not go for something so obvious. There is something very Romani about this song. As for the lyrics....unusual and cryptic. If you can decipher 'em let me know...I'm lost.
4. Little One: Beck
Ghostly...thats is all I have to say.
5. O Death: Camper Van Beethoven
Here's a remake of an old folk tune, you may remember it from O' Brother Where Art Thou. Camper punks it up a bit.
6. Trouble: Bitter:Sweet
I really like this song. If vampires were hipsters this would be an appropriate theme song.
7. La Llorona: Blame Sally
I know that la Llorona is more of a troubled Latin spirit than a vamp...but she is creepy and plus, I haven't come across any songs about the more vampiric chubacabras.
8. Enjoy the Ride: Morcheeba
Wandering through a graveyard has never been so enjoyable.
9. Sidi Ifni: Cracker
Not really a vampire song but certainly very tomb-ish
10. Lunático: Gotan Project
A vampire carnival if I ever heard one.
11. Hunter's Kiss: Rasputina
Ah...Rasputina...the goth girls and there frilly dresses and red and white striped stockings. A sad tale about hunter an prey...it ends tragically...otherwise I guess it wouldn't be a sad.
12. Evil Night Together: Jill Tracy
I fell in love with Jill Tracy's music when I discovered that she composed a soundtrack to the orginal Nosferatu.
13. Black Wings: Tom Waits
If Johnny Cash was a vampire...this would be his theme song.
14. White Tooth Man: Iron & Wine
Okay, so the song is not about Dracula but I thought it seemed appropriate.
15. Twice: Little Dragon
Not sure why, but this song reminds me of the Nosferatus. I think it is all the mirror references. Look up this video on youtube...shadow puppets...nifty.
16. Hold On, Hold On: Neko Case
Haunting...with a country twang.
17. Vampire: Sinéad O'Connor
A reggae version by Sinead about vampire hunters...Ja Ja sent us here to catch vampire...
18. Is She Weird: Pixies
A Goth theme song if there ever was one...there seems to be some debate about whether this is literally about a vampire. I'm not really sure but "Is She Weird" is weird.
19. This House Is Haunted By the Echo of Your Last Goodbye: Holly Cole
And a nice jazzy number to close out the set.
