Music Video: Dead Man’s Bones - “Lose Your Soul”

Um, wow.  Talk about a discovery.  I happen to be slightly mad about Ryan Gosling.  In the sense that I’d be likely to pack up my entire life and leave with him in a second, if he asked.  Which, as you can imagine, isn’t very likely ad is exactly why my other half lets me get away with such traitorous thoughts.

I didn’t know Ryan Gosling was in a band and I certainly didn’t know they were brilliant!

Well, he is and it is called Dead Man’s Bones.  Ryan and friend Zach Shields realised they had a mutual obsession with ghosts and they took to writing love stories about ghosts and monsters which they then set to music.  Luckily they happen to be super talented and Ryan can certainly sing because they sound brilliant.

I discovered Dead Man’s Bones while watching Teen Wolf which is one of my favourite new shows.  “Lose Your Soul” plays in episode 10 “Co-Captain” when Derek Hale confronts Jackson in the locker room.

I’m really sorry to say that I couldn’t find an official video for this one but I thought this video was cool enough to justify sharing this great track.

Dead Man’s Bones’ eponymous debut album was released in 2009 and they performed selected gigs to rave reviews.  They hope to release a follow up later this year.



  1. I like Teen Wolf, too. It had been a little slow at first but the teen issues are fun to watch, added that he turns into something supernatural.

    Your taste in music is a little scary. I'm a real big scaredy cat and prefer something more upbeat. I did like their music video though especially that titled Dead Man's Bones and My Body's a Zombie for You.

  2. @ Haopee: heh, don't think my music taste has ever been called scary. I like all kinds of music but I get very bored of pop music very quickly.

  3. cool..I didn't knwo either..totally my it Emm!

  4. Hi Emm, You really love Torchwood, don't you? I've been looking for other posts to read and I'm always met with Torchwood. The first time I visited this blog which was approximately a month ago, you also talked about it.

    Remember me talking about Dead Man's Bones' My Body's a Zombie for You. I made it a point to find the book! Amphigorey by Edward Gorey. You should check it out being a book lover and all.

  5. @ Kiki: Glad you liked it!

    @ Haopee: That is not so easy to answer. I reviewed each of the episodes as they aired and there were ten in total over ten weeks. I probably wouldn't do that ever again because it was a lot of work and a huge commitment. The good news is I will be spending all my time studying for the next 4 weeks so you won't have to read about that unless you follow my other blog. :)

    But my overall opinion of the season? 2 out of 10.

    I'll definitely look up that book!

  6. That's cool. Pretty haunting sound, and that what makes it great. The "choir" and the murky ambient sounding really nail this song.

    Thanks for stopping by earlier. :)
