B-Sides: Witches Are a Dangerous Type in The Craft
Remember the band Letters to Cleo? If so, odds are you grew up in the 1990s. Few bands scream “Nineties” like Letters to Cleo. They were a perfect choice to provide a B-Sides for a motion picture about teenage witches just learning their craft.
Back before there was a television channel that filled up its airwaves with show after show about attractive teenagers coming to grips with the good and bad aspects of their supernatural powers, there was a movie entitled The Craft that was pretty much a progenitor to everything The CW network broadcasts on a daily basis today.
The Craft told the story of four high school girls (Robin Tunney, Neve Campbell, Fairuza Balk, Rachel True) that dabble in the dark arts and develop witchy abilities that at first benefit them and then threaten to destroy them when one goes mad with power.
Letter to Cleo’s cover of The Cars’ “Dangerous Type” is featured prominently during a montage in which the happy-go-lucky teen witches flaunt their newfound supernatural confidence. It’s a happy, peppy moment before things go to hell and they come to realize why most young Goths of the era preferred music by Marilyn Manson and Korn.
