Music to Make Horror Films By: Neon Trees, “Everybody Talks”

Published March 30, 2014 by biggayhorrorfan

While its awesome that Neon Trees singer Tyler Glenn has come out of the closet…it is maybe even cooler that the splatter-ific video for (energetic pop nugget) Everybody Talks (which was, also, given the musical stamp of approval by Glee) proves that Glenn is a lover of monster movies and drive-in flicks, as well.


Be sure to keep up with all the New Wave style antics of Glenn and Neon Trees at their official website, and/or!

Music to Make Horror Movies By: Voice of the Beehive, “Monsters and Angels”

Published March 23, 2014 by biggayhorrorfan

Okay, so I did tear that guy’s arm off when he bumped into me as I was biking down (the middle of) Lake Shore Drive. But…I did sew it back on.

The exquisite Voice of the Beehive knew this destructive duality well, as evidenced by the nearly perfect pop confection Monsters and Angels:

So, here’s to the beast and the baby!

Music to Make Horror Movies By: Barbara Dane, “Alfred Hitchcock Presents”

Published March 9, 2014 by biggayhorrorfan

I’ve tasted the gritty – especially after that psychotic killer clown pushed my face into the ground when I was 10!

But there is nothing as earthy (and fabulous) as the vocals of legendary folk, jazz and blues artist Barbara Dane! Even cinema’s master of suspense, Alfred Hitchcock, would have to agree with me on that one. (Although, he agrees with me on so little, nowadays. Pesky, I tell you. Just plain pesky!) He included the magnificent Dane in the 1962 episode Captive Audience (starring the distinguished James Mason of Salems Lot and Frankenstein: The True Story fame) on his own Alfred Hitchcock Presents.

Don’t believe me? You can check it, here, yourself:

Then be sure to hang with Dane, often, at This politically charged dynamo is still performing and highly worthy of your support.

Music to Make Horror Movies By: “Bikini Gorilla”, Tonjia Atomic

Published March 2, 2014 by biggayhorrorfan

Growing up in Amish country in the hills of Western New York, I witnessed visual miracles. Why, I will never forget the day I stumbled over a snake…draped in a suit or sang a duet with a dewy eyed cow…that just happened to be wearing a pink thong.

But I have never felt such life changing brilliance as I have watching the totally talented; truly divine Tonjia Atomic sing about a gorilla in a bikini! With dusky soulfulness (and a sense of true fun), Atomic (fronting her band Filthy Issue) delivers the goods on this title track to (the awesome) Andrew Shearer’s upcoming film.

Music to Make Horror Movies By: Sky Ferreira, “You’re Not the One”

Published January 26, 2014 by biggayhorrorfan

Sometimes, you just can’t fight the hunger. I know I can’t fight it every time (I’ve skipped breakfast and) pass a Dunkin Donuts!

Others, like girl-of-the-moment Sky Ferreira, have a better way to deal with The Hunger: they take inspiration from it!

Yes, Ferreira’s moody 80’s inspired video for the catchy You’re Not the One pays definitive homage to Ridley Scott’s Sapphic vampire drama – and audio connoisseurs are all the better for it!

Music to Make Horror Movies By: Bronski Beat, “Why?” – Avenging Angel

Published January 19, 2014 by biggayhorrorfan

I wonder about a lot of things. Like: How come I had to add that vintage Suzanne Somers doll to my collection? Eventual Answer: Because it makes enacting scenes from Ants a heck of a lot easier!

avenging angelI, however, didn’t question the use of Bronski Beat’s classic 80’s track Why? as the background music for a chase/murder sequence in modern exploitation classic Avenging Angel.

Why?, of course, was one of the first rallying cries for queer acceptance. But Jimmy Sommerville’s determined chanting of “You and me together, fighting for our love” works surprisingly well as AA‘s guardian detective (played by handsome Robert F. Lyons) tries, frantically, to save a comely co-worker’s life.

Here is the original, much admired video of this seminal song:

Until the next time – keep working that perfect beat — and SWEET love and pink GRUE, Big Gay Horror Fan!
