What remains of pillaged cultures. The art and beauty and brilliance, that remains only in the pieces of art to survive colonialism. Beauty remains.

Song of the Day: WEREWOLVES OF LONDON by Warren Zevon

Song of the Day: WEREWOLVES OF LONDON by Warren Zevon

Okay I admit that the above album cover does not inspire confidence. Quite frankly it’s weird and creepy, and not quite something I want staring at me for any length of time. That said, you can’t argue with the music, particularly this song:

I saw a werewolf with a Chinese menu in his hand
Walkin’ through the streets of Soho in the rain
He was lookin’ for the place called Lee Ho Fooks
Gonna get a big dish of beef chow mein
Aaahoo!
Werewolves of London
Aaahoo! Aaahoo!
Werewolves of London Aaahoo!
Ya hear him howlin’ around your kitchen door
Ya better not let him in
Little old lady got mutilated late last night
Werewolves of London again

Aaahoo!
Werewolves of London Aaahoo!
Aaahoo!
Werewolves of London Aaahoo!
He’s the hairy, hairy gent, who ran amok in Kent
Lately he’s been overheard in Mayfair
You better stay away from him
He’ll rip your lungs out Jim
Huh, I’d like to meet his tailor
Aaahoo!
Werewolves of London Aaahoo! Aaahoo!
Werewolves of London Aaahoo!
Well, I saw Lon Chaney walkin’ with the queen
Doin’ the werewolves of London
I saw Lon Chaney Jr. walkin’ with the queen
Doin’ the werewolves of London
I saw a werewolf drinkin’ a pina colada at Trader Vic’s
And his hair was perfect
Aaahoo! Werewolves of London
Draw blood
Aaahoo! Werewolves of London
— by Warren Zevon

Find this song, and more, on the album EXCITABLE BOY (Which most people tend to agree is Zevon’s best) here:

Excitable Boy

To try before you buy, you can listen to a sample of the song here.

And remember….

“He’s the hairy, hairy gent, who ran amok in Kent
Lately he’s been overheard in Mayfair”
