GUEST,Scoville Folklore: Kissing Walking Corpses (42) RE: Folklore: Kissing Walking Corpses 08 Jan 05


There aren't any mobile corpses in "Little Darling Pal", are there? Isn't the protagonist there a girl who has been jilted and wishes she were dead; she wants a kiss AFTER she has died (don't ask me why . . . ).

I didn't know that being kissed by a mobile corpse was supposed to preclude death on the part of the [kissee?]. Most songs I know of that involve kissing corpses do not involve reanimated corpses, and the kissing verse is usually the last so we never know what happens to the living participant. I always assumed the protagonist was asking for one last gesture of mercy from someone who had caused them suffering.
