I racked my brains trying to think of songs and music videos that reminded me of vampires. Off I went to YouTube where I knew I was pretty much guaranteed to find thousands of possibilities in the realm of fan-made videos. I’ve chosen a few videos/songs below that bring these creatures of the night to mind.
The below video is for Blood Ties. This Canadian series had a few great characters, but the terrible special effects ruined any chance of it being taken seriously. “I’m Sorry” is really vampirey. Thank you, Roxette for this deliciously moody song (I posted this song in my Tegan’s Magic review last week). Around the 1.03 mark, the vampire-esque sound comes through.
“Cry Little Sister” from The Lost Boys. Possibly my favourite vampire film ever.
“Self Fulfilling Prophecy” from the German vampire flick, We Are the Night/Wir Sind die Nacht. I reviewed this film last year. The song is pretty haunting.
“Lucky” – Bif Naked. Sultry & melancholy. I first heard it on Buffy. The video to this is wicked.
Eyes on Fire – Blue Foundation. I first noticed it when watching Twilight. It’s now one of my favourite songs. Here’s a Vampire Diaries fan video. The lyrics are cool.
Have a great weekend and if you can think of any songs or music videos that remind you of vampires, leave a link in the comments and I’ll check them out. x
