Zombies from the Beyond

I wanted my first official Halloween themed album here to be something might even say...way out! I think I've accomplished it with this little beauty. I've actually done a number of plays and musicals through my local community theatre, and I have to say that I'd have a blast (so to speak) trying to do this show. The basic plot involves the invasion of Earth (starting with a Milwaukee Army base) in the 1950's by that "zaftig vixen", Queen Zombina and her Zombettes. Their aim is to conquer and enslave all men in order to repopulate their planet by using Zombina's secret weapon, her hypnotic singing voice. Throw in a brave scientist, an Army general and his lovely daughter, a Russian spy, and a tap-dancing delivery boy and you've got this really funny show that was performed Off-Broadway in 1996. And you gotta love a show that's scored for piano keyboard, percussion, and accordion!

Finally (with the closest I plan to come to making a political statement here), imagine the song "The American Way" as if it's being sung by George Bush, Dick Cheney, and Condoleeza Rice. It kind of puts a whole other spin on it, doesn't it??

This is a pretty great, whacked-out album. Reminds me of the Off Broadway "Little Shop of Horrors" album in many ways. Too bad this one never got more attention... until now! Thanks!

If this invasion really occurred, it should be welcomed if it means Obama, Joe Biden, Nancy Pelosi, and Harry Reid would lose all power. They, not this queen, is the stuff made of nightmares. And they're such pansies, so they would get owned easily by this invading force.
