Monster Hash

Monster Hash Lyrics:

I was working in the lab late one night
When I heard the gurgle of a waterpipe
So I turned to see my monster in a cloud of smoke
Who said “This shit ain’t bad, here, have a toke”

(We smoked some hash) – We smoked some monster hash
(Some monster hash) – It was his personal stash
(We smoked some hash) – We got completely trashed
(On monster hash) – We smoked some monster hash

As we partied in the castle with the living dead
Mouths were dry and eyes were red
The ghouls and goblins shrieked and screamed
“Won’t somebody please pass the Visine”

(They smoked some hash) – They smoked some monster hash
(Some monster hash) – From Frankie’s personal stash
(We smoked some hash) – And they all were smashed
(On monster hash) – They smoked some monster hash

The mummy was toking on a bong
Wolfman said “Don’t bogart that, pass it along”
The swamp thing was toasted, rolling on the floor
Laughing hysterically and pleading for more

The scene was rocking as the werewolves moved
To the undead reggae band’s dance hall grooves
Meanwhile in the kitchen Frankenstein baked
Some Alice B. Toklas brownies and cakes

(We ate some hash) – We ate some monster hash
(Some monster hash) – It had the graveyard smashed
(We ate some hash) – And we all got trashed
(On monster hash) – We ate some monster hash

The party would have gone on ’til we all passed out
But just then we heard a bloodcurdling shout
“Watch out, beware, cover your necks
Dracula’s got the munchies, and he’s totally wrecked”

(He smoked some hash) – He smoked some monster hash
(Some monster hash) – He was completely smashed
(He smoked some hash) – That transylvanian’s trashed
(On monster hash) – He smoked some monster hash

Now every night the dead rise up from the grave
To partake in our happening THC rave
For you, the living, this hash was meant, too
When you get to my door just say the Toyes sent you

(We’ll smoke some hash) – We’ll smoke some monster hash
(Some monster hash) – And we’ll all get trashed
(We’ll smoke some hash) – From my personal stash
(Of monster hash) – We’ll smoke some monster hash

mmmm – that shit gooood
Easy, boy, save some for daddy
mmm – hash gooood

Vampire music…

“When one creates phantoms for oneself, one puts vampires into the world, and one must nourish these children of a voluntary nightmare with one’s blood, one’s life, one’s intelligence, and one’s reason, without ever satisfying them” (Eliphas Levi)

I guess I was a teenager when this song came out and very much in love. Also very much obsessed with vampires. Still am. This is a song by Bally Sagoo featuring Gunjan, in which a lovely vampire named “Noorie” rises from her coffin, and candle in hand, wanders the streets in her white sari, in search of her love. She spooks out a number of people along the way because she’s a vampire, so you can’t take her picture or see her in a rear view mirror. Its left somewhat ambiguous as to who she is waiting for. Is he (or she) dead? Is that why she wears white? Why does she go to the train station to wait for someone to arrive? She sings “Aaja re, o dilbar jaaniya, Aaja re, aaja re o mere dilbar aaja Dil ki pyaas bujha jaa re” (Come, come o my sweetheart Come and quench the thirst of my heart ) Anyway enjoy this haunting refrain.

Annie Lennox’s “Love song for a Vampire” which was made for Bram Stoker’s Dracula…haunting and spectral…starring the captivating Gary Oldman as the mournful Transylvanian king whose lost love appears to have been reincarnated as a Victorian Englishwoman played by Winona Ryder…

Bauhaus does “Bela Lugosi’s Dead” from the sultry vampire film “The Hunger” which starred David Bowie, Katherine Deneuve, and Susan Sarandon…a quirky, beautifully shot film about a vampire whose life is finite…

Here’s “Slept so Long” from “Queen of the Damned” sung by Lestat, the rockstar vampire of the film, about The Egypian queen Akaasha, played by Aaliyah, who was the original female vampire and who slept for centuries only to be woken up by Lestat’s music. She seduces him and sets out to rein mercilessly over the earth…

Werewolf music

“Werewolf Song” rap/hip hop by “The Moustaches”…trippy video…

“Werewolf” by “Cat Power”…sort of a folksy ballad…

Oh the werewolf, oh the werewolf
Comes a steppin along
He dont even break the branches
Where hes been gone

You can hear his long holler from away cross the moor
Thats the holler of a werewolf when hes feelin poor

He goes out in the evenin when the bats re on the wing
An hes killed some young maiden before the birds sing

For the werewolf, for the werewolf
Have sympathy
cause the werewolf he is someone
Just like you an me

Once I saw him in the moonlight when the bats were a flyin
All alone I saw the werewolf and the werewolf was cryin

Cryin nobody, nobody, nobody knows
How much I love the maiden as I tear off his cloths
Cryin nobody, nobody, knows of my pain
When I see it has risen that full moon again

When I see that moon movin through the clouds in the sky
I get a crazy feelin an I wonder why

Oh the werewolf, oh the werewolf
Comes travelin along
He dont even break the branches
Where hes been gone

For the werewolf have pity, not fear, an not hate
cause the werewolf might be someone that youve known of late

Oh the werewolf, oh the werewolf
Comes travelin along
He dont even crush the leaves
Where hes been gone

A crappy Indie song called “Tooth and Claw” by “Dr. Who”
