Dear Lovers and Haters Alike:
Happy Frickin’ V-Day! I decided to share one of my favorite cd mixes with you. In video form! The theme of this mix is (roughly) Effed-Up Relationships, as reflected in the title. Specifically those I was involved in during my late teens and early 20′s. Well, except the last track. That’s basically my ‘Funky Town‘ (the whack song you play to signify the end of the party) …but murder ballads Rule so listen to it!
I tossed this together in 2007. The videos are in the exact same order as the tracks on my mix. I tried to find as many dark and horror-related videos as I could. And yes, I know the selection shows my age…and that I didn’t embed the vids. I couldn’t care a fluffly fuck less. Heh. Enjoy!
1. Type O Negative - Love You To Death
If you like that, then buy THIS. Someone had the good sense to layer Type O Negative over our favorite rat-in-the-gutter-vamp, Count Orlock (aka Dracula, if you can afford the rights. heh).
2. Danzig – Her Black Wings
When Danzig was still kinda cool.
3. Marilyn Mansun – Put A Spell On You
Ah, Mr. Mansun. Making Sinatra sinister for the horror-hearted everywhere.
4. David Bowie – Heart’s Filthy Lesson
Haven’t learned it Yet… Is there gonna be a quiz?
5. Faith No More – Zombie Eaters
Omniscient, my ass.
6. Pantera – This Love
If I don’t get to you first, buddy.
7. Depeche Mode – In Your Room
9. Concrete Blonde – Everybody Knows
Also featured in its original form (by Leonard Cohen) in Pump Up The Volume (1990)
Come on. Don’t even Try to tell me that you didn’t buy this soundtrack if you are anywhere from 33 to 40 today. I call Bullshit.
10. Death Angel – Veil of Deception
I resemble that remark.
11. Def Leppard – Foolin’
Camel Toe Joe strikes again. That glowing white ‘peen-vag’ is Terrifying!
12. Queensrÿche - Gonna Get Close To You
Awww…he’s So Close to her.
13. Massive Attack – Inertia Creeps
One of my favorite videos OF ALL TIME. Dark. Sexy. Sinister. Breathtaking.
14. NIN – Something I Can Never Have
And isn’t that just the way of things?
15. The Tea Party – Fire In The Head
I miss this band SO MUCH.
16. The Violent Femmes – Country Death Song
“…but I never heard her hit.”
