Musical Monday - No Easy Way to Say This by The Doubleclicks

This week's Musical Monday song answers the question of how a nerdy girl gets out of a date she doesn't want to go on: She transforms first into a vampire, then into a zombie, and finally into the tentacled Elder God Cthulhu. Given the volume of romantic and semi-pornographic tales involving sexy vampires, it seems unlikely that telling an ardent suitor that you are turning into one is likely to deter them very much. In fact, it might make them more interested, at least if the True Blood "fangbanger" community is anything to go by.

On the other hand, I don't think I've ever seen a "sexy" zombie story, so that will probably do the trick of putting off any overly ardent Don Juan. And even though I know a fair number of people who are perfectly willing to be Cthulhu cultists, I don't think any of them would be particularly interested in a romantic rendezvous with the tentacled one.

On a final note, this song is a bit unusual for the Doubleclicks, because Angela performs it solo without accompaniment by Aubrey on her cello.
