H. P. Lovecraft as drawn by Mike Mignola.

We all know that H. P. Lovecraft wrote some very, very weird horror stories in his life, but he also wrote quite a few weird poems, too. And in turns out that, per the internet, one of those poems can be sung to the tune of Billy Joel’s “Piano Man.”


Yes, “Nemesis,” which is about sleep and dreams and unnameable things, is in the exact same meter as “Piano Man.” And, thankfully, the website Birth. Death. Movies. put together a bunch of videos of people singing it.

Go to the article to watch the rest of the videos and marvel at the ingenuity of the internet sometimes.
