Unhappy Goth Day!

Party Time, y’all!

We all know how important music is to Goths and to parties, so let’s open our rusted cabinet of curiosities and haul out some truly horrifying tunage, shall we?

First up, Diamanda Galas performing the Litanies of Satan live. For those of you who are not familiar with the artist, I will just say I was at a concert of hers where at one point she synchronized the throbbing of her screams to the flashing of the strobe lights. Not exactly sing-along stuff.

Now, a little tune from Sopor Aeternus with images from the 1999 silent film “Begotten,” my favorite review of which said, “Begotten makes Eraserhead look like Ernest Saves Christmas.” And you can see why.

And lastly, we conclude with that insufficiently-discovered vocal treasure, Jan Terry, and her 1994 tune, “Get Down Goblin.”

Lyrics over the jump. And you may wish to, if you’ve listened to this.

Get Down Goblin by Jan Terry
[I have taken the liberty of editing it phonetically. You’re welcome]

Get down gobwin.
Get down gobwin.
Get down gobwin.
Get down.
Get down gobwin.
Get down gobwin.
Get down gobwin.
Get down.

The other hawwoween
The children wiw be dwessed up.
Candy, pumpkins, witches awound
The moon shines so bwight.
The air will smeww wike (pudding weaves??) [buwning weaves?]
There’s zewo excitement tonight.

Get down gobwin.
Get down gobwin.
Get down gobwin.
Get down.
Get down gobwin.
Get down gobwin.
Get down gobwin.
Get down.

Who’s that knocking on my doow?
Quote the waven; nevew mowe.
Who’s that knocking on my doow?
