Here's some more musical connections to Harry Houdini:
" by Kate Bush. Written from the perspective of the great escapologist's lover.
(2) "Dig, Lazarus, Dig!!!
" by Nick Cave & the Bad Seeds. Part-inspired by Houdini's debunking of spiritualists exploiting the bereaved.
(3) "Moonlight Shadow
" by Mike Oldfield. Part-inspired by the Tony Curtis-starring Houdini
(4) "Laughing With
" by Regina Spektor. Contains the lyric: "And when presented like a genie who does magic like Houdini. Or grants wishes like Jiminy Cricket and Santa Claus God can be so hilarious. Ha ha. Ha ha."
(5) De-loused in the Comatorium
, Mars Volta's 2003 album, was recorded at Harry Houdini's house, which is said to be haunted.
