Be the Alibi's Valentine

Love songs for our readers

Skullcrusher Mountain

Jonathon Coulton loves his monsters. Whether he's singing about zombies trying to find an acceptable compromise with their intended victims ("we're not unreasonable, no one's going to eat your eyes") or a kraken's wistful desire to befriend the ships it inevitably crushes with its massive tentacles, he approaches these subjects from an unexpected and often surprisingly tender perspective.

No surprise then to find that he offers a similar take on the evil genius who is the subject of the song "Skullcrusher Mountain." Yes, he's twisted. Yes, he's murderous. But he also feels the pangs of love and the heartbreak of being rebuffed.

For anyone who has ever given their crush a heartfelt gift and wondered "What's with all the screaming?"
