For some reason or another, this became a challenge on TikTok.  The album is a depiction of how dementia erodes your memory.  The kids on TikTok think it's spooky.

I suppose it wouldn't be a good idea to tell them about "The Disintegration Loops."  Especially the backstory.

The story behind this one is that the vocals were recordings of anonymous harassing phone calls made to the family of a young girl who'd been murdered. The called would ask if the dead girl had a sister, and was she older or younger. I don't know how true this is, since Blixa Bargeld enjoys making stuff up to mess with people, but this song gets under my skin.

You or someone else posted this last year, too, in a similar thread. I'm just curious what you hear in it that's so creepy. Is it the noirish tone?


Noir? No, it's just creepy. The minor key. The big intervals. It's like Music for Renfield.

Unfortunately, the originally video for "Charlotte Sometimes," a ghost story filmed in an abandoned school for girls, doesn't seem to be available on YouTube, but this live version is illustrated by a still from it.

***Spoilers under video, if you care about music video spoilers***

The Cure - Charlotte Sometimes (1982 05 21 Huggenthalle, Germany)
Youtube QUvaX5U2gJc



It's actually a timely video. A girl wanders through the empty gothic school building and sees the ghost of her doppelganger in 19th-century dress. When she walks into the infirmary and sees the other girl's body under a sheet (apparently the victim of a Victorian infectious disease), she runs from the building.
