Songs of Tess: Nocturnal Species


So even though this post is, like, almost three months in the making, I wanted to post MORE SONGS; I know, it’s probably a dud, but hey, I’m having fun, and isn’t that the point?

Nocturnal beings songs, or songs that deal with vampires/animals. Fun times! (And no, I’m neither a Twilight nor a True Blood fan, so expect no creepy “OMG TRY THISSS VAMPIRE SONG”-type description hidden in there.) My knowledge on these types of songs is limited, admittedly, but I did *try* to make up for that in my choice of fantastic lyrics.

  1. Wolf Party by The Blood Brothers

    This isn’t exactly a wolf song – it’s about a serial killer, who hunts it’s victims and brutalises them. Or something.

    He read the lines on your palm, chanting a creole song, “It is soon you will die, and angels don’t take bribes”…

    It’s a bit screamo-y, and it’s lyrics are harsh, but Wolf Party » manages to break the ice between what is a normal song and what’s an abnormal song.

  2. Hungry Like the Wolf by Duran Duran

    Probably one of the best songs, and not because it’s by Duran Duran – Hungry Like the Wolf talks of hunting down (a woman) a bit like the wolf, because the man is hungry. (Yeah, I know, I am sucking at these descriptions!)

    I howl and I whine, I’m after you, mouth is alive, all running inside…

    Hm, sexy. Give it go », if you haven’t already.

  3. Rest In Peace by James Marsters (BtVS)

    Did you expect me to REALLY miss out on my chance? Puh-lease! James plays a vampire, Spike, in both BtVS and Angel, and he’s singing about Buffy.

    I know I should go, but I follow you like a man possessed, there’s a traitor here beneath my breast…

    The lyrics aren’t anything stellar, but James does it some very great justice, and the music is positively awesome! If you haven’t already, check it out »!

  4. Dance In The Dark by Lady Gaga

    You know me, or if you don’t, I needed some Lady Gaga, and this song fit in perfectly. It’s not about vampires, but it makes a mention, and it’s a great dance song, with great subtly-complex lyrics, so why the hell not?

    Her kiss is a vampire grin, the moon lights her way while she’s howlin’ at him…

    Phoar, yo! Go read », it’s an awesome song!

  5. She Wolf by Shakira

    I’m actually more of a fan of Shakira’s Spanish songs, and this song kind of sucks in terms of music, but it’s werewolves, and it’s about a FEMALE from a FEMALE’S point of view. I mean, how great is that?

    Nocturnal creatures are not so prudent, the moon’s my teacher, and I’m her student…

    Kind of cool, y/n? Try it out », even if I’m a bitch about it.

That about wraps that up! 😀 Hm, already thinking of British bands or something…

I am so glad that She Wolf and Rest in Peace made the list.
