Song of the Day - Walk Like A Zombie

HorrorPops - Walk Like A Zombie

Zombies are cool. I'm a big fan of their work. Ok, I'm not really down with the whole, "arRgH Braaaains," thing they've got going on, but I do love me some zombie in popular culture. In film you've got classics like George A. Romero's 'Living Dead' series (Night of the Living Dead, Dawn of the Dead, Day of the Dead etc.), four Resident Evil films (admittedly with varying degrees of goodness) and more recent entries to the genre like the excellent Zombieland. At the moment I'm reading an insanely cool book by Max Brooks called World War Z. It details the accounts of people who survived a worldwide zombie pandemic and is set to be made into a film, with Brad Pitt attached to star. You can always find a good zombie video game; Resident Evil, House of the Dead and Castlevania are just a couple of franchises that have built themselves up by scaring the crap out of you.

What about music? Why yes, zombies HAVE been featured in music gentle readers. Michael Jackson's 'Thriller' ended up being a homage to zombie films (and drunk people are still doing the zombie dance today) and The Cranberries used the theme as a form of protest on 'Zombie.' You've also got pretty much anything and everything that Rob Zombie has produced over his musical career. And then you've your song of the day, 'Walk Like A Zombie,' which in my opinion rates as the coolest zombie song of them all. Brought to you by Danish psychobilly rockers, The HorrorPops, the song is pretty much a lyrical goldmine complete with references to The Addams Family. Hope you enjoy it as much as I do.
