The Horror Honeys: Horror TV Tuesday Jam ~ 'My Dark Life'

Horror TV Tuesday Jam ~ 'My Dark Life'


She came off like light and so softly she spoke:
"You don't know, no you don't know about my dark life"
And you think you're a guest, you're a tourist at best
Peering into the corners of your dark life
Now that you tear your dreams from consumptive ballerinas
She'd stand on tiptoes for you in a grey and tattered tutu
She stays where she is because of voyeurs like these
With an accusative look that says my dark life...


While other kids my age were losing their minds over the TV soundtrack to Friends, my soundtrack obsession was Songs in the Key of X: Music from and Inspired by The X-Files. Featuring songs that appeared on the show, as well as music popular artists written specifically for the album, each track was more eerie and unusual than the last. But my favorite was always "My Dark Life," by Elvis Costello and Brian Eno. If there was ever a song that I'd want to soundtrack my abduction, this would be it. ~RH
