Warren Ellis

A one-minute-thirty-eight-second musical version of HP Lovecraft’s THE SHADOW OVER INNSMOUTH. Really. By the clearly mad George Taylor, lyrics by the HP Lovecraft Historical Society:

I suppose I shouldn't wonder why everyone keeps refusing to accompany me on a nice seaside picnic in Innsmouth.

The video complements the song quite well in its jollity. A lot of nice little touches in there.

Coincidentally I just finished reading this story yesterday.

And there is no words for this, really it's horrifying and adorable at the same time.

lovely, have read waaay too many stories that had been inspired by the original story of Innsmouth, but this take is awfully refreshing.

Yes.

Next time Christmas comes around, I'm going to play this instead of the usual Christmas tunes.

OVER AND OVER AND OVER.

Oh my.

I wonder how HPL would react to one of his most (in)famous works being sung to such a delightful ditty?
