Happy MCA Day dear readers. I know there’s another really famous day people are celebrating today, but I’ve seen some animosity online about it (I guess we’re all getting a bit touchy) so I’m choosing to celebrate a different special day this year. If you don’t know what I’m talking about, MCA (Adam Yauch) from the Beastie Boys died (far too young) on May 4th, 2012.
Here’s an oldie but a goodie: Possum Kingdom by The Toadies.
I have always been drawn to this song. The darkness of it, the seductive story, the driving bass. It spoke to me when I was younger, and it still speaks to me now.
I assumed it was about a vampire coaxing a young woman to be his undead wife…but after actually watching the video for the first time in, well, in a long time, I realize that might not be the storyline. It always has been–and will remain–that in my mind though.
What say you? Vampire tryst or no?
