Undead Undead Undead: Here is ‘Bela Lugosi’s Dead’ by Bauhaus stretched out over nine hours


Halloween is 10 days away. That means we all have just over a week to stock up on candy, decorate the house, and find the perfect spooky soundtrack to either entertain guests or frighten little-shit trick-or-treaters looking for a confectionery hand-out (thanks, Obama).

That last bit, about the Halloween soundtrack, is tricky. Some opt for darker ’80s and ’90s stuff like My Life With The Thrill Kill Kult or Sisters of Mercy, while others go with the classics, like the “Monster Mash” or the Rocky Horror Picture Show soundtrack. And there’s always Michael Jackson’s “Thriller,” but that’s just inviting seven-year-olds to judge you for handing out Smarties (they don’t snort them like we used to).

Slow Motion TV, however, has the perfect play for this Halloween — a nine-hour, stretched-out, and rather terrifying version of Bauhaus‘ 1979 goth-rock classic “Bela Lugosi’s Dead.” And it couldn’t sound any more atmospheric and evil if it was thrown down a bat cave and cuddled by Nik Fiend.


It makes for remarkable background music, and should get the kids riled up, even though they probably have no idea who Peter Murphy is.

Listen to it below, and get into the spirit of the season.
