Description

This episode we are joined by Ronnie Karam and Ben Mandelker of the Watch What Crappens podcast, for something a bit different! Throughout the years recording Morbid we’ve come across an abundance of songs that were inspired by true crime events. We figured it would be pretty interesting to break down some of the crimes and songs with these fellas. We revisit the Moors murders to talk about The Smith’s ballad “Suffer Little Children,” reminisce on hearing Fastball’s “The Way” while having no idea that it was inspired by something dark and last but not least we dive into Neko Case’s “Deep Red Bells,” which was inspired by the Green River Killer’s victims.

I love The Way. 40 year old me sings it just as often as 18 year old me did. 🤷🏽‍♀️

The Fastball song "The Way" is not about a couple of old people; it's about a couple searching for eternal youth. It specifically says "they'll *never* get old and gray." And the children didn't wake up and start crying; they woke up and couldn't find them.
