Halloween Tips and Tricks

When author Mary Shelley wrote the story of Dr. Victor Frankenstein and his monster in the early 1800s, she could not have known that the legend she created would spawn hundreds of additional books, plays, TV shows, movies and songs. But 200 years later, Frankenstein’s Monster still resonates with horror enthusiasts and lovers of Halloween.

Here are a few of my favorites:

Teenaged Frankenstein – Alice Cooper: The isolated feeling of being a teenage outsider is one we’ve all encountered. Alice takes it to the extreme, and even wrote the song to be in the film Friday the 13th part 6.

Some Kind of Monster – Metallica: There is no specific monster referenced by James Hetfield, but he has stated that Frankenstein was at least part of the inspiration for the lyrics.

Frankenstein – Clutch: “How would you like to die?” Nice opening line…and its Clutch so it’s booth nontraditional yet addictive.

The Siege and Investiture of Baron von Frankenstein’s Castle at Weisseria – Blue Oyster Cult: I think the title kind of speaks for itself.

The Siege and Investiture of Baron von Frankenstein's Castle at Weisseria by Blue Oyster Cult from the Imaginos album Lyrics: On the terminal point Of the cul-de-sac Patients are dying The horses are dazed From the glare of stars The starry wisdom Owned by the baron And he's got the cure A drug by the name of world without end A drug by the name of world without end A drug by the name of world without end Come and take this.................carpe diem!

Feed My Frankenstein – Alice Cooper: More Alice Cooper? Why not? Uncle Alice and classic horror go together like …full moons and werewolves. And the extra added bonus here is that both Joe Satriani and Steve Vai play guitar on this song!
