It dawned on me last night that I haven't done a single Halloween-related post anywhere. I woke up this morning with this song running through my head.
"Frankenstein," from the first "Wayne's World" movie, is probably long forgotten. Really, it's significance in the film is just so that Wayne and Garth can a - worship a rock star; and more importantly, b - get information about how to fix Cassandra's career. Point being, it's a good song that plays a minor role in the story line.
Cooper gets all sorts of Halloween credit. This song, "Frankenstein," as performed in "Wayne's World," is perfect. Everybody knows "School's Out" and "Eighteen," but those have nothing to do with death, horror or creep. Cheeky necrophelia, though? Now we're talking.
So, in the movie, Cooper busts out of a skeleton in a concert scene and sings alternately about eating your flesh and molesting your bones. Sure, it sounds like the 80s and Alice Cooper has never denied that his career is all shock schtick. (Which is cool with me, by the way.) But Halloween is half cheese anyway, so enjoy it.
