The Horror Honeys: Murder Monday Jam ~ 'Excitable Boy'

Murder Monday Jam ~ 'Excitable Boy'



And he took little Suzie to the Junior Prom
Excitable boy, they all said
And he raped her and killed her, then he took her home
Excitable boy, they all said
Well, he's just an excitable boy


Singer-songwriter Warren Zevon knows about more than the werewolves of London. In fact, "Excitable Boy" is the best example of just how macabre of a writer Zevon actually was. Don't be fooled by his upbeat melodies and catchy rhythm: Zevon knew how to craft a horrifying murder ballad. And good luck ever listening to "Wake Up, Little Susie" the same way again. Thanks, Warren, you magnificent bastard.
