Music to Make Horror Movies By: Sissy Spacek, “Hanging Up My Heart”

Published November 3, 2013 by biggayhorrorfan

Oh, Divine Sissy, how we have done you wrong! Your iconic horror role, Carrie = recast, remade (but never equaled) and your solid 1983 recording Hanging Up My Heart can be found for $2.99 on vinyl at the local record shop! For shame!

Yes, after the Oscar winning success of Coal Miner’s Daughter, Madame Spacek, whose other terror efforts include The Ring 2 (2005), An American Haunting (2005) and such gothic stained efforts as Badlands (1973) and 3 Women (1977), released a country tinged recording in 1983. What surprised many about the effort, though, was its level of competence and the impressive talent involved behind-the-scenes (including such musical stalwarts as Rodney Crowell, Roseanne Cash, Vince Gill and KT Oslin).

The project even resulted in several modest hits and the effervescent title track featured, below:

And, if you ask me, that’s almost as cool as watching twenty-something actors (playing teenagers) exploding, bloodily, at the prom, any day of the week!

Until the next time – SWEET love and pink GRUE, Big Gay Horror Fan!
