Robyn Loau – “The Last Time”

Published October 5, 2015 by biggayhorrorfan

As the GLBT community finally gains its rights and full respects in the eyes of the law, it seems like the worst time to genuflect before its faults. But, humanity is a complex and varied beast and, for years now, queer publications have covered the very harrowing (and unfortunately) truthful stories of domestic violence that occur in same sex relationships.

Recently, director-writer Hamish Downie and cinematographer Paul Lemming gave these circumstances a very Silent Hill twist with their video for singer Robyn Loau’s The Last Time. Imbued with a restrained toxicity, this tale of a lesbian couple caught in a loop of violence, is, ultimately, haunting on many levels.

Music to Make Horror Movies By: Sue Thompson, “Norman”

Published September 27, 2015 by biggayhorrorfan

The name Norman may be ubiquitous with Hitchcock and Psycho, but it, also, finds sweet pervasiveness with 60s pop and country star Sue Thompson.

Already in her mid-30s, Thompson’s hits, Sad Movies and Norman, found her competing, successfully, with such teen rivals as Brenda Lee, Lesley Gore and Connie Francis.

Of course, the number we are concerned with here, has nothing to do with Anthony Perkins’ most famous portrayal, but it does put a certain twist on things if we imagine that it does.

Hmmm…so what exactly is that dress you’re making for Norman really made of, Sue?!?

Music to Make Horror Movies By: Lisa London and The Pinups

Eternally sexy Lisa London, who has been popping up in such David DeCoteau features as 3 Wicked Witches and Devilish Charm, as of late, knows eclecticism is the way to go.

While she faced down violent action in such 80s features as Sudden Impact, The Naked Cage and W.A.R.: Women Against Rape, she, also, spent plenty of time providing smooth harmonies for the sweet girl group, The Pinups.

Here’s a prime example:

Now, that’s a pillow-y flashback!

Music to Make Horror Movies By: The Flirts

Published September 13, 2015 by biggayhorrorfan

“I had to go back home to mummy and daddy…”

Who says pop stars don’t truly understand teenage angst? The Bobby Orlando manufactured The Flirts, whose (model) members changed from album to album (and, rumoredly, never really sang) covered teenaged pregnancy, romantic alienation and ultimate familial devotion with the Orlando written Teenage Werewolf (I Was).

While, perhaps, best known for Jukebox (Don’t Put Another Dime), utilized to grand effect in Valley Girl, here
the wild mash-up of old school horror personalities (Dracula, King Kong, Frankenstein) surely makes it this (ever changing) trio’s favored track among terror lovers, far and wide!

Music to Make Horror Movies By: Stacey Q

While many a pop star has ended up in the career cemetery, not many have actually had their big break occur in a cinematic graveyard!

But that is what makes the divine Stacey Q so unique! As the voice of dance accentuated New Wave outfit SSQ, she first came to prominence by providing Linnea Quigley’s Trash with so much gothic sultriness to get down to with numbers like <Tonight (We’ll Make Love Until We Die) in (cult classic) The Return of the Living Dead.trash strip

Her smart advice from her exceptional release Hard Machine (1988) could have helped plenty of slasher victims out in the early days of slaughterdom, as well. So, sit back and listen…or grab that old neon headband and get up and boogie while the divine Q sweetly implores that you Don’t Make A Fool of Yourself!

Make sure to catalog more advice from this kinetic wonder at https://www.facebook.com/pages/Stacey-Q, as well!

Music to Make Horror Movies By: Skeeter Davis

Published August 17, 2015 by biggayhorrorfan

Skeeter_Davis
The divine Skeeter Davis’ take on the mournful pop ballad End of the World, one of her biggest 60’s hits, has, recently, found ironic meaning in such horror type fare as 2010’s Legion and a 2013 episode of Under the Dome.

Perhaps even scarier, though, in real life, the active Davis, a female country music legend, took on her right winging Southern fathers with the fine 1970 album It’s Hard to Be a Woman. Produced with a sympathetic understanding of a woman’s rights (in and out of love) and containing a very clear anti-Vietnam statement (When You Gonna Bring Our Soldiers Home), this daring LP surely must have ruffled plenty of boastful farmhouse feathers.

Still, Davis, known for her multi-layered pop sound, remains as clear and sweet as a dew drop bell on that album’s title track.
