Music for Vampires

In the Buffy episode Surprise. there’s a short scene of vampire Drusilla dancing to a song. That song is “Transylvanian Concubine” by Rasputina. I loved the song as soon as I heard it, and it was perfect in the scene.

Buffy actually features a lot of good music, and even had a few bands play onscreen (Bif Naked, Cibo Matto, The Breeders, Aimee Mann…) But “Transylvanian Concubine” stood out the most to me. Give it a listen and see what you think:

      1. General soundtrack, I used to listen to it regularly. I loved Bif Naked’s ‘Lucky’ and the cover of ‘Wild Horses’, but Gargage’s ‘Temptation awaits’ and Rasputina held the gothic feel of the show for the first three seasons. That’s my view anyway. Was a bit gutted Oz’s band wasn’t on there though.

      2. A shame that, especially when one of the bands on the album (Hepburn) were pretty much a one hit wonder. Ah well, at least we have the episodes we can listen to Dingoes.
