The Vampire State Building
was a pop
group in the late 1960
s. As far as I know, the group was "created" for the purpose of record
ing their one and only single, Barnabas
which is a song about Barnabas Collins
, the famous vampire from the daytime gothic serial drama
, Dark Shadows
. The verse
s to the song were spoken, but the chorus
"Barnabas, we must confess
We dig your pearly fangs and your blood-stained breath
Biting people's is your ghoulish desire
Barnabas you're our favorite vampire!"
The only time I've ever really heard the song is on a Varese Sarabande recording called The Dark Shadows 30th Anniverary Collection which is worth listening to for any DS fan.
