Music to Make Horror Movies By: Sue Thompson, “Norman”

The name Norman may be ubiquitous with Hitchcock and Psycho, but it also finds sweet pervasiveness with 60s pop and country star Sue Thompson.

Already in her mid-30s, Thompson’s hits, Sad Movies and Norman, found her successfully competing with such teen rivals as Brenda Lee, Lesley Gore and Connie Francis.

Of course, the number we are concerned with here, has nothing to do with Anthony Perkins’ most famous portrayal, but it does put a certain twist on things if we imagine that it does.

Hmmm…so what exactly is that dress you’re making for Norman really made of, Sue?!?

Music to Make Horror Movies By: Lesley Gore

While the divine Lesley Gore (1946 – 2015) lived the majority of her life as an out gay woman, her 1964 single Sometimes I Wish I Were A Boy really put a delightfully gay swing on things.

Here, Gore, the perky female narrator, relates how she wishes she was a boy so she can ask out other guys and/or cut in while they are dancing with their sweethearts – making this sweet slab o’ wax one of the most inadvertently and gloriously homosexual things ever!
