Scary song of the Week: The Mariner's Revenge Song

I'm usually all about heavy metal here. Occasionally, a song comes to my attention outside my usual genre preferences that I not only enjoy, but must pass along. The following song is one of those that gets in your head and sticks with you.

The Decemberists put "The Mariner's Revenge Song" on their album Picaresque. It has sea-shanty elements and a creepy female vocal interlude. The voice is of a mother to her son, telling him to find the father and and husband who abandoned them and kill him.

Which is why it fits on this blog. Enjoy!
