Bela Lugosi's Dead

One of my favourite songs has come up on the iPod – Bela Lugosi’s Dead by Bauhaus. It was the first song they released and is a classic. The bossa nova version by Nouvelle Vague is also recommended. It’s worth finding a copy. Anyway, here are the lyrics:

White on white translucent black capes
Back on the rack
Bela Lugosi's dead
The bats have left the bell tower
The victims have been bled
Red velvet lines the black box

Bela Lugosi's dead
Undead undead undead
The virginal brides file past his tomb
Strewn with time's dead flowers
Bereft in deathly bloom
Alone in a darkened room

The count

Bela Lugosi's dead

Undead undead undead

Oh Bela
Bela's undead
