Since I began doing the weekly B-Sides article a few months ago, there has been one song, one music video, one very special B-Side that keeps getting requested over and over. Understandably so, because once you’ve experienced this techno music video from 2003’s Beyond Re-Animator, you’ll dance for the rest of your life.
As ridiculous as this song and its accompanying music video are in the context of Re-Animator, even funnier is learning this song has gained cult notoriety amongst the furry community. As a matter of fact, if you type “Beyond Re-Animator” and “Move Your Dead Bones” into Google, the very first entry you’ll get is from a specialized wiki designed for the furry community explaining the origins of the song:
“Move Your Dead Bones” is a Eurodance song by Dr. Re-Animator. The song originates from a music video on the DVD to the horror/comedy film Beyond Re-Animator. The song itself is found on the compilation album Disco Estrella 2003, also known as Disco Estrella Volume 6. The quirky song and video feature a well-manicured European scientist singing in a very gruff voice that is modified with an Auto-Tune. The song was written and produced by Jordi Cubino, who is best known as David Lyme, one of the most successful performers of Italo-Disco music from Spain in the 1980’s.
All I have to say is this song and video prove director Brian Yuzna has been spending way, way, way too much time making movies in Spain and not enough time yipping.
Here it is. The most requested B-Side ever. The WTF European techno hilarity that is the “Move Your Dead Bones” music video from the Beyond Re-Animator DVD. You’ll be laughing for the rest of your life after watching this.
