Hello, readers! I must apologize for being a week late. I really thought I’d have time to get this up last week, but alas, life happened. With this being October and the month of Halloween, I thought something “scary” might be appropriate for this month’s Weird Al Wednesday. It is to that end that I present the following:
This original song by Al is a style parody of the soundtracks common to 1950s-era science fiction films. The excessive use of electronic sounds like a theremin and synthesizer are prevalent in this song, along with the lyrics being quite the synopsis of the creatures themselves. Even the title of the song is reminiscent of the the 50s sci-fi/monster films. Aside from that though, this is a fun song and still holds much of Al’s humor. This is obvious with such lines as “I sure hope they don’t come in here, I just shampooed the rug.” I mean, do you honestly think that any other artist (save other parody/comedy artists) would release a song with a line like that? I didn’t think so.
Overall, this wasn’t my first choice for a ‘Halloween’-themed song, but I’ve already done a post last year on Nature Trail to Hell. This is a close second, obviously, as it made the cut for this month’s choice. Do you like the song? Do you prefer it over Nature Trail to Hell or not? What are your plans for Halloween this year? Let me know in the comments below! Until next time, stay weird!
