Halloween is coming! Zombieland is in theaters! IFC just ran a 1 hour doc on movie zombies! It’s that most wonderful time of the year . . . There’s a zip file, walking among the undead below. Oh, and before you start bitching: I know I didn’t do every single letter. Deal with it.
A is for Asher Roth. Yes, that’s right, the mediocre Jewish rapper who was paired, by DJ Cinema on his recent “Stimulus” mixtape, with Jadakiss, Kanye West & Big Boi on “Is He Rich Like Me?” which sampled the great Zombies tune, “Time of the Season.”
C is for Care Of Cell 44 (zombies cover)-Matthew Sweet & Susanna Hoffs. From their first “Under the Covers” collection. Great stuff.
D is for Dachambo-Zombie.
E is for is for what is, hands down, the greatest zombie song ever. Everybody sing the chorus: “All we wanna do is [E is for] eat your brains!” Jonathan Coulton-Re: Your Brains.
F is for fish. Leftover Salmon-Zombie Jamboree.
G is for the Grey Race-Care Of Cell 44 (zombies cover).
G is also for graph . . .
H is for Hanging Chads-Zombie Cucumber.
I is for “If You Shoot The Head You Kill The Ghoul” by Jeffrey Lewis.
J is for Jerry Joseph-Zombie Blues.
K is for Kick Out The Jams-Pearl Jam (Bad Brains cover).
L is for Lies of the Living Dead-Steve Wynn.
N is for Naked Sun’s “Dipsy Gizzard Brains.”
N is also for nutrition . . .
O is for on top.
P is for Poor Man’s Whiskey’s cover of Pink Floyd’s “Brain Damage.” Actually, if you go here, you can hear the band cover the entire Dark Side of the Moon album. Pretty cool.
R is for Romero’s classic flick, the first great zombie movie. Night of the Living Dead-G Love and Special Sauce
S is also for Super Hero Zombies! Hooray Blackest Night!
T is for trains! Zombie-Jiva Train
W and X are for eX-Whig Greg Dulli’s Twilight Singers’ cover of The Zombies “Time of the Season.” What a great song. So many covers.
And, of course, Z was for Zip File. But it’s long, long gone now.
