Music Monday: Science Fiction Edition

Today Music Monday was created in the lab, pulp paperbacks, and b-movie plots. So let’s go on a science fiction roadtrip!

Songs, that I want to bring your attention to besides Rocky Horror, are Daft Punk’s ‘Harder, Faster, Better, Stronger.’ This song has a futuristic beat and tells a dream of the future. Another song is ‘Rock Lobster’ by the B-52s which tells us a different vision of the world, and creatures that work in the night.

The weather turned, the leaves outside the window are about to change, college students everywhere are celebrating their patrons: PSLs and Pumpkin beers.  This means one thing, its October! Every Monday in October, Music Mondays will feature a horror genre, a specific book, or a horror villain.  In honor of Twilight publication, here are the vampires. Please don’t stake me!
