Your showtune for August 9 is

“Carpe Noctem” – Dracula

Music and Lyrics: Christer Johansson & Jacob Mülrad

Make the most of your evening tonight with this song which translates from Latin to “seize the night” from this Swedish musical version of Bram Stoker’s ultra-popular tale of the famed night stalker.  Incidentally, “Carpe Noctem” is also the title of a song in an Austrian, German-language vampire-themed musical entitled Tanz Der Vampire*, but it has nothing to do with the story by Bram Stoker.

*There is a significantly revised English-language version of this musical called Dance of the Vampires which was a notorious flop on Broadway.
