Track Review: The Gothic Archies - "Scream And Run Away" [The Tragic Treasury]

So this album gets my vote for guilty pleasure of the year. As previously reported, Stephin Merritt wrote a song to correspond with each book of A Series of Unfortunate Events, under his Gothic Archies moniker. Merritt deadpanning gloomy/doomy lyrics over bubble-gum goth tunes is too kitschy/awesome for words. "Scream And Run Away" is a little sea shanty that introduces us to Count Olaf, the main villain of the series. If you should see him yourself, Merritt suggests the following: "run, run, run, run, run, run, run, run or die, die, die die die die die die." I laugh every single time. It's a problem, but I don't care.
