Liner Notes: 

From Liz's original posting of the lyrics - Catherine Wacha posted a challenge where she assigns a title from a Horror Movie as a prompt to those in the challenge. She assigned me DeadGirl

I immediately knew I had to write lyrics for an uptempo poppy or punky rock love song.

Catherine says - I did what I could to keep this upbeat and kind of pop rock / power pop feeling. It ended up a little slower than I wanted to but I think I kind of got a "This Town" by The Go-Gos feel to it which I am pretty happy with. I LOVED Liz's lyrics and really wanted to push myself to do something different than I have been doing lately.

I recorded the guitar and then had a little bit of a hard time getting all the lyrics in on the last part of the chorus but I think I kind of got it. The bass distorts a bit but I think it works for the feel of the song. My vocals are rough, I struggle singing up high like that sometimes but the bones of what I was going for are there. This is definitely one I want to revisit at a later date.

Lyrics: 

my dead, dead girl

V1
walking down the street
in ripped up muddy clothes
with arms outstretched
blood dripping from her nose

with pupils fixed and dilated
in eyes that never close
she is pale as a ghost
and partially decomposed

L
and I love her so....oh..oh...oh...oh....

C
she is my
dead... crush
she makes my
cheeks... blush
whenever
she comes near

she is my
dead.. crush
she makes my
blood... rush
whenever
she is here

yeah! she is my
dead love
she is my
dead girl
and I can’t...
get enough
of this dead...
dead girl

V2
hanging with the zombies
partying through the night
loving the intensity of
giving onlookers a fright

with hunger for fresh brains
blood everywhere in sight
she is always feeding
my sexual appetite

L
and I love her so....oh..oh...oh...oh....

C
she is my
dead... crush
she makes my
cheeks... blush
whenever
she comes near

she is my
dead.. crush
she makes my
blood... rush
whenever
she is here

yeah! she is my
dead love
she is my
dead girl
and I can’t...
get enough
of this dead...
dead girl

B
she’s so very charismatic
but this bleeding heart fanatic
has become problematic
I need new hemostatics
something quick dramatic
to maintain my hydrostatics
with this dead dead girl
of mine

C
she is my
dead... crush
she makes my
cheeks... blush
whenever
she comes near

she is my
dead.. crush
she makes my
blood... rush
whenever
she is here

yeah! she is my
dead love
she is my
dead girl
and I can’t...
get enough
of this dead...
dead girl

i met the guys who made Dead Girl. theyy were pretty humble and I dont think they realized what a fine film they had made. You must have seen it, as you capture the essence of the film so well. Besides that, this is simply a great love song. I love your melody and singing style.

Well now I have to watch the movie! I like the drum rolls in the chorus. This sounds like it would be the closing credits of a 90's B movie.

Well, dang--now I want to watch the movie. Going to take some work to find it. I particularly enjoyed the vocal on this--but the music is great, too. Very nice collaboration. I love horror movies, and don't know how this one missed me.

Great job!
