Tales of the Darkside

Friday, February 21, 2020

Tales of the Darkside was a horror anthology show. The pilot showed in 1983, the series ran from 1984-88. Each show was a stand alone show, many ending with a twist. The stories ranged from horror, the macabre, fantasy, & science fiction.

The episode would start with this voiceover:
Man lives in the sunlit world of what he believes to be reality.
But...there is, unseen by most, an underworld, a place that is just as real, but not as brightly lit...a dark side.

It ended with this voiceover:
The dark side is always there, waiting for us to enter — waiting to enter us. Until next time, try to enjoy the daylight.

In the cool of the evenin' when ev'rything is gettin' kind of groovy
I call you up and ask you if you'd like to go with me and see a movie
First you say "no", you've got some plans for the night
And then you stop, and say, "all right"
Love is kinda crazy with a spooky little girl like you

You always keep me guessin', I never seem to know what you are thinkin'
And if some fellow looks at you, it's for sure your little eye will be a-winkin'
I get confused, 'cause I don't know where I stand
And then you smile, and hold my hand
Love is kinda crazy with a spooky little girl like you
Spooky spooky yeah, yeah

If you decide someday to stop this little game that you are playin'
I'm gonna tell you all that my heart's been a-dyin' to be sayin'
Just like a ghost, you've been a-hauntin' my dreams
So I'll propose on Halloween
Baby, love is kinda crazy with a spooky little girl like you

Spooky, yeah, yeah
