I love the odd, quirky, slightly spooky Werewolves of London by the late, great Warren Zevon. It’s from his 1978 album, Excitable Boy. The song was produced by Jackson Browne, and backing vocals on the original recording feature Fleetwood Mac’s Mick Fleetwood and John McVie.
To me, it’s a fun song, especially for a cool October evening.
I will also say that in my opinion, Kid Rock ripped off the iconic riff of this song in his All Summer Long, which is supposed to be a tribute to Lynyrd Skynyrd’s Sweet Home Alabama. Nope, not buying it, it’s Werewolves of London all the way. I won’t dignify it by posting it here, but you can look it up on YouTube.
But as long as we’re talking monsters…
How about a little Frankenstein? It’s Edgar Winter’s instrumental classic from the 1972 album, They Only Come Out at Night.
I hope you’re enjoying this October weekend. Be sure to hug those you love.
Happy Saturday night!
