Music to Make Horror Movies By: Crystal Bernard

Published August 20, 2017 by biggayhorrorfan

Crystal 1.jpgArt sometimes does imitate life. As the perky Courtney in Slumber Party Massacre II, Crystal Bernard played an enthusiastic (and endangered) member of an all girl band. Trivia experts, of course, know that cinematic creation’s tracks were played by poppy new wave band Wednesday Week.

In the mid-‘90s, though, Bernard came into her own as a vocalist, releasing two country albums and performing duets with the likes of Peter Cetera, Billy Dean and Jim Messina.

The latter assignments often found her cooing along on pretty ballads, but the more upbeat State of Mind is sure to appeal to all those fans who admired her joyous mock rock n roll all those years ago.

Music to Make Horror Movies By: Barbi Benton

There are many ways that people get from Point A to Point B, but for those who wonder how Susan Jeremy wound up being threatened at that nefarious, under-populated medical institution in X-Ray (AKA Hospital Massacre), Brass Buttons, the number 5 song by that beleaguered horror heroine’s portrayer Barbi Benton, certainly won’t provide any clues.

Of course, this little country ditty, written by Bobby Borchera and Mack Vickery, does seem to take its inspiration from Benton’s physique and her years as a Playboy model. But why, oh, why didn’t the two ever write about her adventures filming Deathstalker or her days flirting with David Doyle’s Bosley on Charlie’s Angels? Now, that would really be a song!

Music to Make Horror Movies By: Loretta Lynn

If I know one thing it is that country superstar Loretta Lynn is fierce. What I didn’t know, and what her 8th number one song Trouble in Paradise proves, is that this western legend is a prize winning devil hunter, as well.

In a tight Kenny O’Dell composition, the grand dame of ass kicking takes care of some demon women who are threatening to steal her man’s soul – in less than 3 minutes, a record if there ever was one!

Be sure to keep your slaying skills top notch by following Lynn at https://www.facebook.com/LorettaLynnOfficial and www.lorettalynn.com.

Music to Make Horror Movies By: Hoyt Axton

Decades before he entered an entire generation’s collective heart as the slightly flummoxed American benefactor of Gizmo in Gremlins, Hoyt Axton was already hanging out with the cool kids. His mother, Mae Boren Axton, was the co-writer of the popular Elvis number Heartbreak Hotel and, as a beloved songwriter and singer in his own right, his songs were covered by such personalities as Cher, Joan Baez, Arlo Guthrie and Three Dog Night.

Axton, whose other horror credits include Retribution and Buried Alive, was even joined by Linda Ronstadt on the beautiful and heart breaking Lion in the Winter, which was featured on his popular 1975 A & M album, Southbound.

Pretty enough to make a Mogwai cry, no?
