Favourite bands last no longer than a few months for me because I end up listening to them non-stop until I can take it no longer. Which is why I’ve been trying to find some newer Goth-Rock stuff (see. Goth or Not?). I fell so hard for classic post-punk that we needed some time apart. That time is over! Somehow some of my favourites found their way back into my favourite playlists and I’m fully immersed into my favourite genre. But who brought me back from the dead?
Bela Legosi’s Dead
A while back I posted Five Killer Bauhaus Songs that aren’t Bela Legosi’s Dead. But there are so many reason that this song is so renowned within the subculture. One, is because it is typically seen as the epitome of the Goth sound (even though Bauhaus certainly wasn’t the first Goth band). The second reason is because it’s just so fucking good.
I’ve never been a fan of Dead Can Dance; their sound has gone through so many variations that a mere mortal such as myself can never find the one I like! If you can find me some other songs similar to Black Sun I might marry you. (Probably not, though. Sorry.)
Temple of Love
Certainly the most dance-worthy (in my opinion) of this list, but no less famous trad-goth tunes. I’m not sure what else I can say about this. You better have a listen, and then tell me what you think.
Last Beat of my Heart
Have you ever had a band or a song rekindle your love for anything?
