Music to Make Horror Movies By: Pat Benatar

Capitalizing on Alice Cooper’s 1978 From the Inside, a madhouse based concept LP and 1979 Marvel comic book; boundary leaping pop star Pat Benatar unleashed Get Nervous, her fourth offering, upon the world in 1982. While not containing the cinematic through line of Cooper’s work, the cover imagery does contain an undeniably straitjacketed vibe and the tone of many of the rock offerings contained within is decidedly dark. Indeed, songs such as Looking for a Stranger, Fight it Out, The Victim and I Want Out are almost jittery with angst.

The title offering, Anxiety (Get Nervous) , propelled by agitated guitars, provides skittery aural delights, as well. The video, meanwhile, captures a delightful, horror filled take on one of life’s unpleasant realities, a trip to the dentist, and allows Benatar to show off some of the best Bride of Frankenstein hair this side of Elsa Lanchester!

  • Thank you for spotlighting my favorite album from one of my favorite artists. Pat’s wonderful and I’ve seen her and Neil live multiple times.
    And I’ll give you something else too. Not only does the video turn a trip to the dentist into a nightmare, but the creepy but scared guy in the waiting room? None other than the great Zacherley!

    • It’s probably my favorite, too, Scott! I’ve never seen her live, but I’d like to. It seems like she still tours a lot. & great info about the Zacherley appearance. I LOVE that moment in the video and thought he looked familiar. It seems someone on the Benatar/Giraldo crew must be a horror fan, as well. Fun!!
