#RocktoberMusicFest ♪ “Dance With the Devil” – Breaking Benjamin

For this last week or so of the month, I’m going to be posting songs you might find on a rocker’s Halloween Playlist. Most of them are from movies you’d watch during this spooky time of year. I don’t care for slasher/horror films, myself – but if there’s one thing that can scare the hell out of me it’s horror movies with a religious theme. Blame it on the early influence of an Irish Catholic grandma. Omen, The Exorcist, Rosemary’s BabyThe Prophecy, etc. have all left memorable, if not unfavorable impressions. Yet, while those movies are designed to terrify, I do enjoy religious movies full of action and suspense like Devil’s Advocate, Constantine, Stigmata (my personal favorite), and Legion.

Legion was a bit underrated in my opinion for having so many big name actors in it, but that’s probably because it was more of a mash up between The Seventh Sign and 30 Days of Night with killer angels, rather than an in-depth story with complex characters. Still, if you’ve never seen it, it’s worth watching at least once. The trailer can be found here.

I couldn’t go an entire month of rock without sharing one of my all-time-ever favorite bands, Breaking Benjamin – and fortunately for me, they have hundreds of songs to choose from, because I post about them A LOT. 😀 Though BB has tracks for both video games (Halo 2) and other movies (Surrogates, Hellboy, The Conjuring, etc.) – their song “Dance With The Devil” cannot be found on any soundtrack anywhere. Which sucks, because it would be perfect for so many movies. Lucky for us, a fan out there put the music to scenes from Legion, which is awesome – I was getting tired of watching the Devil’s Advocate one, and unfortunately BB never made an official video for this song. There should be some rule against that…

Enjoy!

  1. Melody,

    I think it was DD#2 who introduced Breaking Benjamin to me with ‘The Diary of Jane’ or at least I think that was the song title. It’s been too long now. They have a good sound vocally and I usually enjoy their mewsic arrangement, too.

    Can’t you buy ‘Dance With the Devil’ as a single? I enjoyed this new-to-me tune. I didn’t watch the clip but noticed you said a fan set the song to scenes from the movie Legion. I have not seen this film but will see if it’s available for streaming.

    Have a rockin’ good time today and I’ll see ya around! 😉

    • Yes, Diary of Jane was one of their first hit singles – still one of my favorites. I own all of the Breaking Benjamin albums, I was saying as far as YouTube videos go, BB never made their own video for Dance with the Devil. Glad you liked it! 🙂
