    Default Don't fear the reaper...damn song is everywhere.

    I keep hearing different versions of Dont fear the reaper, on adverts, on the football (soccer), and it's making want to read the stand. I have not read it yet, and I still have alot of Dark Tower to go (although I'm not against the idea of reading other books between them). I just checked out a video on youtube, it was the intro to the mini series with the song playing whilst the camera swept over hordes of dead bodies, that made me want to watch The Stand, but I want to read it 1st so the book isn't spoilt.

    Also, I recently looked in depth into a video game in the making called the Last Of Us, it has a simmilar apocolyptic pandemic theme, and that made me want to read/watch it too.

    Argh, very frustrating.

    I'm guessing Blue Oyster Cult's copyright ran out. Too bad.

    Band's rarely own their songs, their publishing companies do and license them as they see fit.

    There's only one thing for it...read The Stand already!
    I'd definitely recommend reading it before watching the mini-series, the book is far superior.

    Funny....I saw your thread at work yesterday and when I left for home the song started playing on the radio. You should go ahead and read The Stand, one of my favorites.
