Morning Music: Zombie Love

Jesse FergusonThe last song on Jesse Ferguson’s 2013 album, Shift, is “Zombie Love.” It’s kind of serious at the same time that it is totally silly. I mean, it’s a straight love song. But it is told from the perspective of a zombie. And it includes this wonderful refrain:

I may be dead
But my life began
The day that I bit you.

The video itself shows a playful side of Ferguson that we don’t usually see because the focus is on his gorgeous music. I really wish that I had known about this song for Halloween. I’ll have to remember next year to do a week of Halloween songs — and definitely include this one. Give it a listen. It’s really wonderful.

  1. The title alone was enough to remind me of this song by another talented and fun guy, Jonathan Coulton – RE: Your Brains

    If you’re not already familiar with Jonathan, he became internet famous with the song Code Monkey. That and a few other songs with very geeky subjects have established him as the geek troubadour. Among which are the theme songs for the video games Portal and Portal 2 – ‘Still Alive’ and ‘Want You Gone’.

    • Thanks! I’m not familiar with him. This song is great! They are reasonable. Of course, who wants to eat eyes? I’ll check out more of his work.

  2. BTE – another thing about Jonathan Coulton. He releases all his songs under GPL. As a result you’ll find hundreds of videos based on them. People around the word create videos with animation, live action, dances or whatever else they can imagine.

    He also has a gig as a regular part of NPR’s radio game show: Ask Me Another.
