A thought popped into my mind a few months ago, and I've tried to pass it off to others to blog about to no avail. So, I'll take a stab at it myself.
The thought is this: What type(s) of music do you associate with various supernatural/paranormal creatures? I don't read or watch a whole lot of supernatural/paranormal, but from my limited experience, this is what I've come up with.
Zombies - The only thing that readily comes to mind is Michael Jackson's "Thriller". (Haha - I know, cheap shot but I couldn't pass that one up.)
Vampires - I associate vampires with two things; classical music and whatever was popular when and where each was turned. I can see a 1920s-turned vampire continuing his/her interest in jazz, a Fifteenth Century vampire that still digs Gregorian chants, or an early 1990s vampire with a burning love for Nirvana & Pearl Jam.
Were-wolves - Despite the long lifespans were-wolves seem capable of, I see were-wolves as completely classic rock/ heavy metal guys (and girls). It's really all there in the song titles:
Bad Company - "Running with the pack"
Ozzy Osborne - "Bark at the moon"
Guns 'n' Roses - "Welcome to the jungle"
Duran Duran - "Hungry like the wolf"
Agree? Disagree? Think I'm out of my mind? What music do you associate with the things that go bump in the night? Let's here your ideas.
