When Funny Turns Kinda Creepy

I like to creep my wife out every now and again by playing some Q Lazzarus – Goodbye Horses and talking in that fucked up retarded voice Ted Levine has. I’d recite a few lines from the movie The Silence of the Lambs, I’d have a chuckle while my wife shivered and that would be that.

Well today, while listening to some Oingo Boingo – for some reason – that song popped into my head and I wanted to find out just exactly who Q Lazzarus was. That’s when I got a surprise myself. If any of you are familiar with the song, and/or the movie The Silence of the Lambs, it fit too perfectly. I honestly thought that was a dude singing the song. Nope, it’s not. It was a chick with a husky voice! Holy shit-balls! I had no idea and never would’ve guessed.

Honestly, I still kinda like the song because it reminds me of the movie I attribute it to, though it’s been used in other movies. And I still like creeping my wife out at times. But to actually look this up and find out a bit of what’s behind the song actually made me feel a bit creepy myself. Whatever, I’ll still always like to tell my wife to “put the lotion in the fucking basket” and such. I haven’t perfected that insane, semi-retarded, cleft pallet, talk in that occasion for nothing!

Here’s a real video for Goodbye Horses:

And here’s a song and video by The Greenskeepers, inspired by the movie and song, that I thought was very well done:
