Haunted Nursery Rhymes is a collection of sinister songs and repugnant rhymes. Performed by childlike specters that sing hauntingly twisted versions of Nursery Rhyme favorites. Scary, spooky, unnervingly macabre and morbid are the words that come to mind when attempting to describe this collection of haunted rhymes, songs and poems from the Horrific Halloween / Horror masters... In A World.
“Rock-a-Bye Baby” – the creepiest version of an already slightly twisted nursery rhyme.
“Poisonous the Spider” – A new, poison-filled version of the “Itsy Bitsy Spider.”
“Lizzy Borden (Down by the Seashore)” – Based on the classic jump-rope / playground song, the macabre story of Lizzy Borden’s Murderous past inspired this poem and recording.
“He’s Not Sleeping” – Based on “Frere a Jaques” (or “Are You Sleeping), and turned into a song of the dead – telling of multiple old-school deaths.
“Lullaby (and Goodnight)” – A twisted, music box winding down while playing a melancholy version of this classic lullaby.
“The Witch” – An original poem inspired by the mistress of darkness.
“London Bridge” – A dark classic.
“Bloody Mary” – Based on the urban legend of reciting “Bloody Mary” into a mirror to call her spirit into existence.
“The Body Lies Under the Ocean” – A parody of the traditional tune “My Bonnie lies over the Ocean” done in the setting of a pirate ship.
“Nightmares” - In A World’s original song about the visions in the darkness.
“Six Feet Deep” – Our dark version of a playground/jump-rope song performed by childlike spirits.
“Witch’s Lullaby” – Our very own concoction of a terrifying lullaby that a witch would sing.
