Halloween songs no. 18: T.S.O.L. – “Dance with Me”

Dance with MeHere’s another T.S.O.L. song from 1981’s Dance with Me. I chose it because I’m going to see them tonight at the Shakedown Bar. I haven’t seen them in 2 years, since they played the Goldenvoice 30th anniversary thing at the Santa Monica Civic. This one is set to the 1929 Disney Silly Symphony The Skeleton Dance, which we previously saw in the Ministry track I posted as no. 3, and in yesterday’s Nekromantix clip.

Dance with me, my dear, on a floor of bones and skulls
The music is our master, the Devil controls our souls
Swirling and swirling with the music all our turning
Swaying to the sounds of a demonic beat

All our dead partners as we walk into the crypt
Frightening but delighting, our host unearthly gloom
Cold blood in my veins roars, I’ve been too long uncaged
My body’s in wild convulsions as I’m falling into the dust

A ring of death in on me like a halo to the gods
I’m bathed in mortal sorrow, my innocence is lost
