King Diamond - 'Sleepless Nights'
Yeah, his music is very much an acquired taste, but lately I've been spinning a lot of King Diamond stuff. Whether it's his early material with Mercyful Fate, his solo stuff such as the godlike 'Sleepless Nights' below, or more recent albums like "Give Me Your Soul... Please", there is something creepy and wonderful about this particular metal god. This song is one of my favourites. The guitars, the solos, the chorus, those gloriously OTT vocals, the lyrics, it just all works damn well for me. Go on, scream along with the King and enjoy the theatrics.
