The (Goblin) Also Rises
This is the second in a weeklong homage to one of the greatest musicians of the modern era. Please don’t look for any other videos other than the ones I’ve posted, or else it will ruin the surprise.
As I’m sure you know by now, my heart is open, like an open book, open to the wonder that is Jan Terri. Hopefully, yours is no longer closed. If so, don’t worry! We’ve got four (4!) more days to change your mind emphatically in favor of the genius of Jan Terri.
This second is classic vintage Terri, and ranks #2 on the TFGJTVOAT (Top Five Greatest Jan Terri Videos Of All Time. Duh!) scale. Are you the type of person that doesn’t think there are enough Halloween themed songs out in the musicsphere?! Are you a goblin conniseur?! Do you like to dance?! If you answered “yes” to any of these questions (or if you answered “no”, but still want to see where this is going) then you will love, I mean LOVE, ‘Get Down Goblin’.
This is one of the all-time greatest Halloween-themed songs, right up there with ‘Monster Mash’ and ‘Believe’ by Cher (surprising, I know). Any song that starts off with a haunting organ solo and flickering black and white shots only portends greatness. While Ms. Terri tears it up in the song with her fervor and passion and astoudingly audible voice, the real treat of this video is provided by the back-up choir. These three Muses pull triple duty as women of the night who croon the catchy chorus, “Get down goblin/get down goblin/get down”, and provide some impeccable choreography that will leave you trying to practice it at home. Obviously Beyonce has seen this video, and was no doubt inspired by the sheer inventiveness and ferocity that these chorus girls bring.
Again, I find myself rambling on when you’re not even reading what I have to say! All you want is to see the video! Golly, sometimes I can be so pedantic, but who isn’t when they’re talking about their inspiration?!
I sure hope we’re not “losing you” tomorrow as we continue to “get down” with Jan Terri! Join us!
