Music to Make Horror Movies By: Bronski Beat, “Why?” – Avenging Angel

I wonder about a lot of things. Like: How come I had to add that vintage Suzanne Somers doll to my collection? Eventual Answer: Because it makes enacting scenes from Ants a heck of a lot easier!
I, however, didn’t question the use of Bronski Beat’s classic 80’s track Why? as the background music for a chase/murder sequence in modern exploitation classic Avenging Angel.
Why?, of course, was one of the first rallying cries for queer acceptance. But Jimmy Sommerville’s determined chanting of “You and me together, fighting for our love” works surprisingly well as AA‘s guardian detective (played by handsome Robert F. Lyons) tries, frantically, to save a comely co-worker’s life.
Here is the original, much admired video of this seminal song:
Until the next time – keep working that perfect beat — and SWEET love and pink GRUE, Big Gay Horror Fan!
