I've saved some of the best tunes for last. This is indeed the sauciest song for my Music for the Month of Halloween. It’s probably not the sort of thing which comes to mind when one contemplates the holiday, but “Demon Lover” has a sinister swagger which puts me in the spirit.
The song has an interesting point of view, that of a woman who is visited nightly by a mysterious figure, presumably a vampire, before eventually embarking out to find her elusive ghoul. There are some creepy undertones perhaps worth discussion, but within the context of a cheeky 60s pop song it’s an enjoyable piece of music.
