"Bela Lugosi's Dead" stretched to nine hours


Goth anthem "Bela Lugosi's Dead" by Bauhaus time-stretched into nine hours. Oh Belllllaaaaaa! (via Dangerous Minds, thanks, Patrick Kelly!)


  1. Inspired by the magnificent nine beet stretch—Beethoven’s Ninth Symphony stretched across 24 hours (http://www.expandedfield.net/), perhaps? We experienced it a handful of years ago at a So Cal museum. Amazing.

    By sheer coincidence, just yesterday I was just thinking about Bauhaus’ song Spirit. In regular 3:36 time, that is!

  2. this feels like just the right kind of soporific squee perfect for long hours of working in the studio, trans-pacific flights, or – if you’re lucky – ammunition to load into retail public address systems.

  3. I’m confused. Are people actually enjoying this unironically? I figured it was a “ha ha internet did something wacky” deal, but it sounds like some folks are genuinely listening  to it.

  4. Yeah, that’s great and all, but it’s a bit of a pain to get up after 4.5 hours and flip the cassette to the B-side…

    Could be worse, I suppose. On vinyl, the B-side is nine hours of “Terror Couple Kill Colonel”.
