The Lost Boys is approximately 50-60% of why I became goth. Mary Shelley shares significant blame as well.
You may have heard that I love all shitty vampire things. Because of this I tend to hear vampiric themes where none were intended, and this happened even more frequently back when I was a young goth. In the mid-’90s I briefly played Vampire: The Masquerade and my friends and I would curate playlists of mood music for our sessions. (Actually, curating mood music and writing backstories for our characters constituted pretty much the entirety of our V:tM time—I think we only played twice.) Anyway, here’s a partial list of songs from those playlists:

After The Flesh by My Life with the Thrill Kill Kult
sample lyric: “We’ll infect your carnal mind after the flesh…”

The Killing Moon by Echo and the Bunnymen
sample lyric: “So soon you’ll take me up in your arms / Too late to beg you or cancel it though I know it must be / the killing time”

Dead Souls by Joy Division
sample lyric: “Someone take these dreams away / That point me to another day / A duel of personalities / They stretch all true realities”

Bloodletting by Concrete Blonde
sample lyric: “O you where a vampire and now I am nothing at all”

Devil Inside by INXS
sample lyric: “Here comes the woman with the look in her eye / Raised on leather with flesh on her mind”

Cry Little Sister by Gerard McMann
sample lyric: “Temptation heat beats like a drum / Deep in your veins, I will not lie…”

Lullaby by The Cure
sample lyric: “Quietly he laughs and shaking his head / Creeps closer now / Closer to the foot of the bed”

One Caress by Depeche Mode
sample lyric: “I’m shying from the light / I always loved the night / And now you offer me eternal darkness”

Paint It Black by The Rolling Stones
sample lyric: “I see the girls walk by dressed in their summer clothes / I have to turn my head until my darkness goes”

Moon Over Bourbon Street by Sting
sample lyric: “It was many years ago that I became what I am / I was trapped in this life like an innocent lamb”

Episode 22 – Where Is My Spooky Piano Music?


Imagine this scene set to spooky piano music.

Sorry, guys! At the start of the show, we promised spooky piano music, and Mary’s neighbor failed to deliver. Next time we’ll be sure to record at the cabin in the woods.

In this episode, Paul tells us all about Alto’s Adventure, a sweet little endless runner with snow and llamas. Then Mary nerds out on iZombie, the new comedy-action-WTF from Veronica Mars‘ own Rob Thomas. (She thinks you will like it.) Finally, we take a super-brief look at the upcoming Emerald City Comicon.

P.S. We were hoping to get this out before episode 2 of iZombie dropped, but logistics failed us (or vice versa). You’re resourceful, and we believe in you. You’ll find a way.
