The Babadook Song

Author Comments

So, I really enjoyed the movie "The Babadook" so much that I decided to make a song out of the storybook used in the film...just for fun. It really was one of the best horror movies I've ever seen that actually used real suspense with an interwoven dialogue that was also captivating and gave the characters multiple dimensions. Anyone who enjoys that sort of stuff should find a way to watch it.


If it's in a word or it's in a look,
You can't get rid of the Babadook.

If you're a really clever one,
And you know what it is to see,
Then you can make friends,
With a special one,
A friend of you and me.

A rumbling sound then,
Three sharp knocks,
That's when you'll know that he's around,
You'll see him if you look.

This is what he wears on top,
He's funny, don't you think?
See him in your room at night,
And you won't sleep a wink.

I'll soon take off my funny disguise,
Take heed of what you've read.
And once you see what's underneath,
You're going to wish you were dead.

The Babadook sounded like a business demon in this one

Nice one! I love the movie, because in the first half it´s one of the creepiest I´ve seen in a while. Although the end of the movie is a bit to long and strange...
Your "ba-Ba`s" and "Dook`s" are quite cool and you did great by following the text with the atmosphere of the music. Also: very cool creepy atmosphere in general!

I can always count on you for unusual music, that's for sure. You nailed the feeling/atmosphere and I believe it suits your style in general anyway.
I think the voice could have been given more depth in the mix considering there were now lower instruments to take up that part of the spectrum - it would have given the song more depth.

interesting, I haven't heard of this movie until just now
