Things That Go Bump in the Night / Give Me a Terrible Fright

Please celebrate the coming holiday by watching the video for the 1976 rock song “It Came in the Night,” by the improbably named band A Raincoat. It’s a good track — Dangerous Minds calls it “one of the most insanely catchy songs of all time” — but it’s fairly obscure. That’s too bad. It’s dark but fun, much in the way the animation used in the video treads the line between scary and funny. In short, it’s perfect for the spirit of Halloween. In fact, it should be the official anthem of Halloween. Enjoy.

The songs biggest claim to fame is being featured in abridged form in Kenneth Anger’s “Rabbit Moon.”

I’m not sure which makes for a creepier visual accompaniment.

Anyway, because I think it’s a song more people should know about, I’m posting it for your downloading pleasure. Click here to download.
