So i've been sitting here all day listening to the soothing sounds of Music Choice's Sounds of the Seasons, which just began playing Halloween tunes this past Monday. It's one of those music channels (IO channel 801) that plays music all day along with pictures of the artists and random facts going on in the background. Well, for the Halloween season, they've got interesting horror movie/true crime/Halloween facts scrolling on the bottom and Halloween related songs playing all day long. Movie themes, fun little jingles, rock classics, spooky sound effects, you name it. Did you know the electric chair was invented by a dentist? Well anyway, they've been playing an awful lot of Elvira songs and that prompted me to dig out a little gem I got from a horror convention a couple years back, but had not yet watched. I figured now was the perfect time.
MTV gave Elvira 4 straight hours on Halloween back in 1986 to broadcast her top ten spookiest videos, live from Salem, Massachusetts. This 2 disc dvd set has got all four hours and it's chock full of awesome videos, funny Elvira skits, and even old school commercials! Commercials like this one of the Prince of Darkness whoring himself out for a calculator company!
These are the kinda dvds you can only find at horror conventions. I so enjoyed this dvd that I thought why not upload the top 10 and slap it on here for all of you to enjoy! So here it is! Elvira's top 10 weirdest,strangest, most bizarre music videos! Complete with Elvira intros! I was tempted to just post the videos of these songs others have already put up on YouTube, but what's an Elvira countdown without Elvira?! The qualitys not that great on these, but it aint my fault. I hope you enjoy as much as I did.
10) The Damned - Shadow of Love
9) Ozzy Osbourne - Shot in the Dark
8) Rocky Horror Picture Show - Let's Do The Time Warp
7) Love Theme From Godzilla '85 - I Was Afraid To Love You
