Chapter 182: Devil's Haircut

Spooky pop & rock

“Spooky” is in heavy quotes here; these songs are dark camp (when they aren’t straight-up camp), perfect for Halloween parties and Tim Burton movies. The opening trio features some lustrous production, between Bjork’s icy electronics, the William Orbit assist on “Frozen,” and a “Day In The Life” aping crescendo on “Push It.” We also get two sides of Danny Elfman: the heroic composer of Burton’s best films, and the grinning demon ringleader of Oingo Boingo. The scariest moment here, and the realest, is Black Francis’ feral breakdown on “Hey.”
