JIM DAN DEE – “FRIENDS”- THE SSSPOOKY HALLOWEEN EDITION
FIVE STIFF SHOTS (YEAR)
Well folks, it’s almost Halloween, so what better selection for today’s Track Of The Day than a Spooky Halloween Edition? So here you have it: fresh off the press, Jim Dan Dee releases its updated version of “Friends”, a choice track from Five Stiff Shots.
Of the song, lead singer and guitarist James Stefanuk writes: “The same imagery comes up again and again: mad doctor cackling on a hilltop, lightning zapping through some gigantic antennae-like device to bring the corpse to life. I believe that his is more than just a popular story. It speaks of the moral dilemma we have with resurrection, and the one ingredient that we all believe we need to make it happen: immense power. One and a half million volts might do the trick. But we’d have to be mad to use it.”
I am spooked. Don’t say I didn’t warn you!
