Dark Shadows

Sunday, October 20, 2019

Dark Shadows, 1966-71, ABC
An American Gothic soap opera. Dun-dah-DAAA! I remember watching it in the day. I just laughed at it, it was so over the top. Spooky mansion, supernatural goings-on, woo-woo. The life & loves of the fabulously wealthy Collins family. (Or I may be confusing the show with the Depp movie) The show really caught fire when they added vampire Barnabas, werewolves, ghosties, ghoulies, long-legged beasties & things that go bump in the night. A major part of the audience was teenagers getting home from school. There were 2 movies from the show - the first, House of Dark Shadows, came out in 1970. Apparently, it was more blood-drenched than expected, & lost viewers. The second was with Johnny Depp in 2012.




Vampire Blues, Neil Young, 1974



I'm a vampire, babe,
suckin' blood
from the earth
I'm a vampire, baby,
suckin' blood
from the earth.
Well, I'm a vampire, babe,
sell you
twenty barrels worth.



I'm a black bat, babe,
bangin' on
your window pane
I'm a black bat, baby,
bangin' on
your window pane.
Well, I'm a black bat, babe,
I need my high octane.



Good times are comin',
I hear it everywhere I go
Good times are comin',
I hear it everywhere I go.
Good times are comin',
but they sure comin' slow.



I'm a vampire, babe,
suckin' blood
from the earth
I'm a vampire, baby,
suckin' blood

Well, I'm a vampire, babe,
sell you
twenty barrels worth.



Good times are comin'.
