Good morning stargazers! Welcome to not only the latest edition of the Monday Mood Music, but the official raising of Reel Whore's Week of Reel Whorror! If you can't tell from the banner, this year's whorror theme is ZOMBIES! I chose the living dead in honor of the upcoming premier of my most anticipated new show of 2010, AMC's The Walking Dead. More on that later; now let's get this party started!
What artist better suited to raise the dead from their rest and get their heads thumping than the man who adopted the moniker, Rob Zombie? Rob was the front man of the metal band White Zombie, a band named after the first zombie feature film. In 1998, Rob Zombie released his solo album, Hellbilly Deluxe and, shortly after having its head removed, White Zombie was no more.
This week's selection is the second single to come from Rob's solo album. The tune makes several references to various horror movies and, before you ask, I have not seen all of them. That doesn't stop me from enjoying the hell out of the song though. No more yapping, let's get to rockin'!
By the way, the banner image comes from the 1982 film, La Morte Vivante a.k.a. The Living Dead Girl which was the inspiration for this song's title.
