In the mood for the macabre – Nosferatu – Love song for a Vampire.

When writing music I do it under the name of Blue Grape. “Love song for a Vampire” is a musical composition that I wrote a few years ago. Today I’ve decided to release it from the constraints of my computer hard drive (where it’s been gathering digital dust for far too long) and make the web its new permanent home by making a video for it and releasing it on YouTube. What could be more fitting to a song called “Love song for a Vampire” than the footage from the horror classic from 1922 Nosferatu? Hope you like my tune (and my poorly edited video).

About the video footage: The film, shot in 1921 and released in 1922, was an unauthorized adaptation of Bram Stoker’s Dracula, with names and other details changed because the studio could not obtain the rights to the novel (for instance, “vampire” became “Nosferatu” and “Count Dracula” became “Count Orlok”).

The film is in the public domain and you can watch it in full here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rcyzubFvBsA
