Favorite Halloween Videos: “You Belong to Me,” Patience and Prudence

I appreciate narratives that add a new, subversive layer to established media. John Waters credits Kenneth Anger with being among the first filmmakers to do this for twee pop music, by dubbing it over images of bikers, French pantomime artists, and fancy dress parties with cabalistic imagery. Most of us born in the decades since those films hit the underground film scene were shaped by the artists who picked up the trend. My favorite recent one is American Horror Story, who managed to take quite a few pop hits even I breezed through on oldies radio and throw in a dash of creepy.

And it’s lovely.
