The Art of Darkness

Blue Sunny Day

March 26th, 2009 by Cobwebs

Blue Sunny DayJonathan Coulton, whose Re: Your Brains I listen to on repeat more than I should probably admit to, has just released a new song. Blue Sunny Day is a cheerful, bouncy tune about a suicidal vampire.

Though once I had decided to use the phrase “blue sunny day,” it was hard not to notice that the word “blue” can have another meaning. From there it’s only a quick jump to vampire suicide.

Jonathan Coulton is my kind of guy.*

Len of Monster by Mail created this drawing based on the song, which I desperately want on a T-shirt.

Anyway, should you be in need of a little pick-me-up, it’s hard to go wrong with angsty, desperate lyrics set to a perky little tune.


*As someone pointed out on his site, by using the themes of both suicide and vampires in this song, he has become the first person ever to successfully manage a jaunty Jeff Lynne-styled goth tune.
