The Horror Honeys: Vampire Friday Jam ~ 'People are Strange'

Vampire Friday Jam ~ 'People are Strange'

People are strange when you're a stranger 
Faces look ugly when you're alone 
Women seem wicked when you're unwanted 
Streets are uneven when you're down 
When you're strange 
Faces come out of the rain 
When you're strange 
No one remembers your name 
When you're strange

People ARE strange, yo. Jim Morrison isn't just whistling Dixie here. "People are Strange" is a poignant portrait of angry loneliness and heartbreaking isolation - a state which Morrison forced himself into on a regular basis. Taken from the soundtrack to The Lost Boys, here the song takes on a different meaning - not just that people are strange (duh, they're vampires), but that Michael's new state of affairs, one that he is fighting against is a lonely one, and if he doesn't turn to David and his group of vampiric hooligans, an eternity full of isolation awaits him... and that would suck. While the song on the soundtrack is performed by Echo and the Bunnymen, your Head Honey is a stickler for the original. ~HH
