Ichor! : The Lovecraft Musical

Yes, it’s those lovable Great Old Ones, before the glory days! Rambunctious otherworldly teens having eldritch fun and arcane good times! Enjoy such wonderful musical stylings as this:

*o/` Summon oozin’, that’s when we met.
Summon oozin’, our tentacles pet.
She had slime, thick as can be.
He stopped time, literally.
Summoned away, had just a day,
but those summoned nights!

Tell me more, tell me more,
did she run very far?
Tell me more, tell me more,
get his heart in a jar?
Ftagn, ia! Ia!
Ftagn, ia! Ia!
Ftagn! Ia! Ia! o/`
*

Or the unforgettable “You’re the One That I Ate”:

*o/` You summoned me
to fulfill your wishes.
But I tell you
I can be real vicious.
I’ll have your brain if
you’re too defiant.
I demand compliance!

You’d better shape up
‘cause you’re not Azathoth.
And I’m lookin’ for a meal.
You’d better shape up,
from all this pseudo-Goth.
You wouldn’t recognize Goth if it were for real.

You’re the one that I ate!
Ooh! Ooh! Ooh!
You’re the one that I ate!
Ooh! Ooh! Ooh! o/`
*

Now I really have to go dig that hidey hole…
[sub]It could actually be worse. The words “H.P. Lovecraft’s Cthulhu Babies” flitted through my mind for one spine-chilling moment…[/sub]

Heh…you think you jest…

Check out A Shoggoth on the Roof over at www.cthulhulives.org. It’s a real CD with such lovely songs like “Tentacles”, “If I Were a Deep One”, “To Life” (featuring Herbert West), and other unholy re-writings of A Fiddler on the Roof.

It will become an actual live play next fall.

Ia! The stars are right!

And have you read “Yog-Sothoth: Superstar”? I would actually like to see the play featured in that story. (“Lovecraft: I Love You!”)

“Who day and night must slumber in R’lyeh
Wave his tentacles
Having nasty dreams
And who has the might as master of R’lyeh
To drive humanity insane?
Cthulhu!”

“Who’s always last to know
Who fills the air with cries
Whose sanity is blasted
And then who usually dies?
The Victims!”

*My baby’s got the most deplorable taste,
But her biggest mistake
Are swarming over the whole estate.
She’s got rats, rats in the walls,
Rats, rats, lurking in the walls.

Wo-wo-wo I love her so but if she doesn’t kills the rats,
I think my mind is gonna go.
Rats rats in the walls.
Rats rats, lurking in the walls.

I start to snuggle up and squeeze her so tight.
Then out of the corner of my eye
I hear those rats in flight.
I love you baby but I can’t ball
When I hear those rats in the walls.

Rats, rats, rats in the walls.
Rats, rats, rats in the walls
Oh those rats in the walls are beginning to move
They’re talking to me
I’ve got to get away from those rats. *

Extra points if you can name the song this is parodying.

(I was surprised at how well it fit in, BTW)

I personally like the “Byakhee, Byakhee” song which is sung to the “Matchmaker” song from Fiddler on the Roof.

Ooooh! Ooooh! I know!

Ducks On The Wall, from the classic Kinks concept album, A Soap Opera.

Did I win?
