It’s Probably Me (by Sting, Michael Kamen, Eric Clapton, and David Sanborn) 
I just heard that Saxophonist David Sanborn passed away. Many may remember his sound from Richard Donner’s Lethal Weapon series, though he also worked with other musicians like David Bowie & Sting. It’s Probably Me is the theme song for Lethal Weapon 3, with a...

Bauhaus’ Bela Lugosi’s Dead (by Trent Reznor w/ Peter Murphy) 

Welcome to October, one of the finest months of the year! You’ve Autumn in full swing, It’s Libra season for the first half, my Birthday’s nestled in there, and of course, Halloween!! I love this month so much. Although I am a little late, I will be teaming up with the Shattered Lens’ on their yearly Horrorthon event. While some of my additions will be films already covered there, some are still new to me and to the overall DWI catalog here. It’s a win-win all around, horror for everyone!

It’s hard to find anyone who doesn’t know of or hasn’t heard the original “Bela Lugosi’s Dead” by Bauhaus. Released in 1982 on the Press the Eject and Give Me the Tape album, it’s something a Goth historical staple. Instead of sharing the original version, however, I thought we’d take a different approach. The following is from a special concert with Bauhaus’ Peter Murphy and Nine Inch Nails, with Trent Reznor taking the lead on the vocals. I really wish they’d make an album of the Murphy/Renzor works.

Lyrics:

White on white translucent black capes
Back on the rack
Bela Lugosi’s dead
The bats have left the bell tower
The victims have been bled
Red velvet lines the black box
Bela Lugosi’s dead
Bela Lugosi’s dead
Undead, undead, undead
Undead, undead, undead
The virginal brides file past his tomb
Strewn with time’s dead flowers
Bereft in deathly bloom
Alone in a darkened room
The count
Bela Lugosi’s dead
Bela Lugosi’s dead
Bela Lugosi’s dead
Undead, undead, undead
Undead, undead, undead
Undead
