Bela Lugosi’s Dead – Song Of The Day

Bauhaus

Our Song Of The Day for today is Bauhaus‘ cult gothic rock song “Bela Lugosi’s Dead” and although it could be considered an odd track seeing as it’s like 9 minutes long, the vocals don’t show up for ages and it’s completely surreal both in structure and when it comes to the lyrics, this is one of those tracks that stays with you and definitely benefits from repeat listens. You’ll either love it instantly or it’ll grow on you over the years and you’ll end up loving it anyway.

The song was famously used to thrilling effect in the devilishly cool intro to the movie The Hunger back in 1983.
