“Cry Little Sister” Theme from “The Lost Boys”

I absolutely love this song and especially this cover by the band Aiden. The original version was in the classic 80’s vampire film The Lost Boys, and this new version of the song was made for the 2008 sequel.  I love both films, and both also feature siblings, so check them out!

You can listen to an interview with the original writer of the song here. While it is hard to tell what the writer really meant when he wrote it, people have speculated it could be incest or the vampire race/community as it relates to the film.

It could be talking about vampires who have fallen and are forever doomed in this dark, miserable world that they can’t get out of. They are calling to their sisters (and brothers) a.k.a. people of their kind, to come to them and join them so they wont be alone in this world that doesnt understand their pain. In the movie the main character refers to the vampire tribe as a family, and he continues to seduce and manipulate the girl into joining the tribe. He cant be human again so he is trying to get her to become like him.

Listen to the song here. What are your thoughts?
