Evil Dead is out next week….
Translated this is my equivalent to the royal wedding. So I felt this was an appropriate time to utilise and confuse my Spotify and create a zombie playlist. a) because I have nothing better to do prior to writing my dissertation (which sadly will not be about zombies, or the oedipus complex, or Carol Clover, or discuss anything to do with brain-dead reflections of capitalism, it’s a shame). B) because there’s only so much of Beyoncé’s B-day Album I can listen to on repeat. So here is a miscellaneous list with totally unrelated genres…enjoy
1) Michael Jackson-Thriller
The original. And the best
2)The Bee Gees- Stayin Alive
Essentially that’s the aim….even though this song actually has no zombie reference whatsoever.
3) The Cranberries-Zombie
It’s about the problems in Ireland during the early 90s. Basically has Zombie in the title
4) Marylin Manson-Long Hard Road Out of Hell
Marylin is always a good one for a zombie apocalypse, hes been talking about weird shit and wearing blue lipstick for quite some time.
5) Queens of the Stoneage-A song for the deaf
If we’re gonna get technical, they should be deaf. If there’s loud noise they hear it, so this is an ode to Daryl’s motorbike.
6) Ke$ha-Die Young
7) Lana Del Rey- Born to Die
Potentially quite soon
8) Yeah Yeah Yeahs-Heads Will Roll
or be eaten off, depending on the severity of the situation
9) Rob Zombie-Dead City Radio and The New Gods of Supertown
10) Mobb Deep- Hell On Earth
Although its a political hip-hop song about the evils of todays society, hell on earth is pretty much the literal scenario we have to contend with
11) Rob Zombie-Livin Dead Girl
This guy is so specific. He sings about nothing BUT zombies, dead people, death, and other morbid shit, in a totally non-ironic way. Second feature on the playlist.
12) Bon Jovi-Living on a Prayer
This is the optimistic song right before you realise you are actually fucked.
13) Linkin Park-In The End
….it doesnt even matter….thought Rick….. during most of season 3.
14) Evanescence-Bring Me to Life
An ideal situation if your on the verge of turning. This song seems fitting, despite its overly christian subtext. Dedicated to T-Dog RIP
15) Duran Duran-Hungry Like a Wolf
One for Andrea….
