…Kαι ένα “κλασικό” από τους Oingo Boingo. την μπάντα του Danny Elfman [υπήρξα φαν του “ατόμου” πριν το ξεκίνημα της κινηματογραφικής του καριέρας] ταιριαστό με το αφιέρωμα.
Σε δυο βερσιόν, στούντιο [mp3] και live.

… And a “classic” by Oingo Boingo, Danny Elfman’s band [I ‘ve been a fan of “the man” before the start of his film career] fit for the tribute.
In two versions, studio [mp3] and live.

❝ Yeah, yeah, let ’em in
I’m all dressed up with nowhere to go
Walkin’ with a dead man over my shoulder
I’m all dressed up with nowhere to go
Walkin’ with a dead man over my shoulder
Waiting for an invitation to arrive
Goin’ to a party where no one’s still alive
Waiting for an invitation to arrive
Goin’ to a party where no one’s still alive
I was struck by lighting, walkin’ down the street
I was hit by something last night in my sleep
It’s a dead man’s party, who could ask for more
Everybody’s comin’, leave your body at the door
Leave your body and soul at the door
Don’t run away, it’s only me
Only me, only me
I’m all dressed up with nowhere to go
Walkin’ with a dead man, with a dead man
Ooh-ooh, waitin’ for an invitation to arrive
Ooh, walkin’ with a dead man, with a dead man
I got my best suit and my tie
With shiny silver dollar on either eye
I hear the chauffeur comin’ to my door
He says there’s room for maybe just one more
Hey, I was struck by lighting, walkin’ down the street
I was hit by something last night in my sleep
It’s a dead man’s party, who could ask for more
Everybody’s comin’, leave your body at the door
Leave your body and soul at the door
Don’t run away, it’s only me
Don’t be afraid of what you can’t see
Don’t run away, it’s only me
Don’t be afraid of what you can’t see
It’s only me
I was struck by lighting, walkin’ down the street
I was hit by something last night in my sleep
It’s a dead man’s party, who could ask for more
Everybody’s comin’, leave your body at the door
Leave your body and soul at the door
Don’t run away, it’s only me
Don’t be afraid of what you can’t see
Don’t run away, it’s only me
Don’t be afraid of what you can’t see
It’s only me
It’s only me, only me
It’s only me, it’s only me
Only me, it’s only me
It’s only me
It’s only me ❞

Enjoy!
