5/7/14 – Christine – The House Of Love – 1987/Siouxsie And The Banshees – 1980/Executive Club – 1970

Video Of The Day

Christine Movie Car 1958 PlymouthAlthough the connection between Siouxsie And The Banshees and The House Of Love might be considered tenuous, they did have something for Christine. In Siouxsie And The Banshees’ case it was the fascinating story of Christine Costner-Sizemore and her multiple personality disorder. In the case of The House Of Love – it remains a mystery.

If you are wondering why there is a 1958 Plymouth in the photo, apart from it being my birth year (true) in Plymouth (not really). It is from the 1983 film adaptation of Stephen King’s book of the same name. There’s actually a lot of songs called Christine but this rare soul gem by Executive Suite features Daryl Hall and is co-written with Len Barry and Tom Sellers. It’s great – if you dig soul.

    I’d never heard the Executive Club piece before so that’s a nice revelation for me. Love Siouxsie’s song of course. The House of Love here are at their darker,haunting,moody best. As for the Stephen King novel it scared the bejesus out of me when I read it as a 12 year old! Nice looking car in the film – shame it isn’t yours Marty!
