Zombie Tunage (part 1)

 In celebration of Zombie Week, I've put together a playlist of zombie inspired music. After hours of research I've identified six different uses for zombies in music, and now I'm gonna bring it to you in a six part series that will end in (wait for it) MY PERSONAL ZOMBIE SURVIVAL PLAN! Now you, too, can be prepared for the end with my fool proof, two-part plan!

 We'll be starting our musical oddesy with two specifically zombie songs. These were written with the explicit purpose of capitalizing on or spreading the current zombie phenomenon. I think these are very good, and they represent the same slant on zombies that the vast majority of YA books do.

 First up on the menu is Aim for the Head by Creature Feature. I don't know where these guys have been all my life, but they are amazing! And not only is it a really good song, it's also instructional.
 Next on our list is Zombies Everywhere  by Karate Hisghschool. An instant classic with a lot of subtext, this song puts me in mind of Generation Dead.
Tune-in tomorrow when we'll be delving into the subgenre of MZU.
Happy Zombie Week!

I ♥ Zombies Everywhere!!! After reading this post, I put a link on one of my Shelfari groups. It would be cruel to deny the world of such an awesome song! ^_^

I like the new header. =)
