Holy spooky friend outside your window! David Soul helped deliver the scares to generations with his leading role in the 1979 television version of Stephen King’s Salem’s Lot. Thankfully, Soul also knew that exactly what it took to calm a fright, as well – a big steaming pot of black bean soup!
This silly ditty, co-written by Soul, was featured as the B-Side of his hit single Don’t Give Up On Us Baby and was featured, prominently, on his successful self-titled solo album. Meanwhile, eagle eyed terror fiends will be pleased to note that beautiful television regular Lynne Marta is Soul’s duet partner here. Marta, Soul’s real life paramour at the time, starred in the rarely seen shocker Help Me…I’m Possessed. But, she is probably best known as pretty songbird Jo, whose would-be rapist is castrated by the strange creature haunting the sands in the 1981 drive-in classic Blood Beach.
So, until it’s safe to go into the sound studio again…SWEET love and pink GRUE, Big Gay Horror Fan!
