Buttkickin’ Halloween Songs: “Wicked Annabella” — The Kinks (1968)

blgwickedannabellaIn a dark and misty house
Where no Christian man has been
Wicked Annabella mixes a brew
That no one’s ever seen…

From the magnificent The Kinks Are The Village Green Preservation Society album comes this spooky little number written by Ray Davies and sung by brother Dave. Between the thunder of Mick Avory’s percussive assault and Dave’s ominously droning riffage, Ray has woven a tale of the quintessential creepy house down an abandoned road, where a mysterious figure raises demons, casts spells, brews potions, and abducts children… you know, for FUN!
