Stephen Coates really got into this Last Werewolf project. Maybe a little too into it. Taking Glen Duncan’s novel of the same name as his inspiration, he’s created not only one of my favorite records this year but also a playlist of werewolf songs. Now, Soundcheck listeners may remember that we did a “Soundcheck Smackdown” on who has the better songs, vampires or zombies. Read the listener comments, still posted on the webpage, to see some of the great and not-so-great songs inspired by the various flavors of Undead. Note too, that even though they were not part of the debate, werewolves got a little love occasionally. Now, with the full moon having just passed, it seems safe to unveil Stephen Coates’s list of 30 great werewolf songs, plus 1 poem.
