All Will Be Carved in Eli Roth’s Thanksgiving Teaser 
I was kind of hoping to hear John Harrison's "Something to Tide You Over" from Creepshow in this trailer, but I guess that requires some copyrights. Eli Roth looks like he's keeping it simple and close to the original fake trailer he created for 2007's...

Fool in the Rain – by Led Zeppelin 

There are three things about Led Zeppelin’s “Fool in the Rain” that come to mind when I think about it. One, it sounds like it should be a Billy Joel song. Two, it’s a song that Zeppelin never had the chance to play live, which is a shame. I would love to know how John Bonham would be on drums during a live session for this. Three, I love the salsa changeup in the middle. It takes a song about a man waiting in the rain for a love that may never come and turns it into a wacky dance party before returning to the original rhythm.

A question popped up about choosing the last song one could hear before being executed. I couldn’t help but go with this one. Fool in the Rain is just a feel good song for me. Also a great road trip piece. It’s either this or Fire, Inc.’s Tonight is What it Means to be Young. . Enjoy.

    Agreed. People ask me what song I want played at my wake..Fool In The Rain had always come to mind. I love the lightness and the playfulness of this song. Something here I have connected with since first hearing it probably 40 years ago now.
