HP Lovecraft meets Billy Joel

This crosses into a land I for one am uncomfortable with.


Now I want to hear a mash-up called, “The Dream-Quest of Unknown Kate Bush”.


It’s a terribly effective combo, isn’t it?


Sing us a song, you’re the Eric Zann
Sing us a song, tonight.
'Cause we’re all in a cult of Dread R’leyh
And you’ve got us feeling some fright.


Oh Joy!



would the nameless horrors (like beings of greater intellect and vast horizons) be as intimidating to us now? I would think not…maybe a bit awe-inspiring or consternating. some “horrors” that he believed in , like miscegenation, have been proven to be harmless.


Ph’nglui mglw’nafh Cthulhu R’lyeh wgah’nagl fhtagn


I preferred this version


Also of interest:

You can sing Emily Dickinson to the theme of Gilligan’s Island.

"Because I could not stop for Death
he kindly stopped for me
The Carriage held but just Ourselves
And Immortality


Well, that’s easy for you to say!

@lectroid I remember an episode of Columbus in which one of the potential motives was an Emily Dickenson scholar who’d been told by the victim, “You can sing all of Emily Dickenson’s poetry to the tune of the Yellow Rose of Texas”.

“And he was right!”, wailed the scholar.


The eldritch pipes at the beginning were a nice touch.


The flutes! The insane flutes!


“Yesterday, Matthew, I was an insane cultist; but tonight, Matthew, I’m going to be with Yogsothoth!”



meh, for me just an iridescent, voluminous hybrid of gelatinous incongruity.


you could probably set weirder stuff to this.
