Countdown to Halloween, Day Eight: French Frankenstein, or A Monster of Distinction

It’s not widely-known, but the Frankenstein monster was actually quite a sophisticated gent behind the scenes.

So sophisticated, in fact, that I bet he preferred this fancy French version of the monster-rock classic “You Can Get Him Frankenstein.”

(Of course, “fancy” is a relative term. Especially when you’re talking about something like the original…)

  1. I’m sorry Mark, but to my mind it’s missing something in the French version. Some of that “grit” is gone.
