Song of the Day (10/31/09: Halloween Edition) October 31, 2009

Is there any band that says “Happy Halloween” more than Bauhaus?  Whether or not you agree with the Godfathers of Goth label they got tagged with, there’s something undeniably creepy about their music, and it’s never been better illustrated than on their quintessential track, “Bela Lugosi’s Dead.”  This is the reunited band performing it in classic style – frontman Peter Murphy dangling upside-down, batlike – at my spiritual home, the Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival.

And, just for the novelty value, here it is again, performed by Murphy, Nine Inch Nails’ Trent Reznor, and TV on the Radio.  Enjoy.
