The song “Monster” by The Boy Least Likely To popped into rotation on the ipod today sparking my sudden interest in songs about monsters, real or imagined; metaphorical or made of flesh and bone.
I’m sure there are lots of novelty songs from the 50′s that would fit the bill and I welcome those but I’m primarily interested in something with a real emotional core. Antony and the Johnstons’ “Frankenstein” and particularly Vince Bell’s version of a different song titled “Frankenstein” come to mind.
So email me your contributions and I’ll add them to the list. I need the mp3 file or a link to it. If you are sending me the file send it to email@example.com.
