“And I struggle and shriek ere the daybreak… being driven to madness with fright.”
“The internet made me do it,” singer Julian Velard posted to his SoundCloud profile this week. “H.P. Lovecraft’s Nemesis mashed up with Billy Joel’s Piano Man.”
It all began over on Twitter, when user Captain Video made the kind of discovery the internet is so wonderful at making. “Just realized H.P. Lovecraft’s Nemesis has the same meter as Billy Joel’s Piano Man,” the Captain tweeted on January 14. It took Velard only four days to reply with the song, the actual song, which he’s dubbed “H.P. Joelcraft.“

Sometimes the internet drives us to a point of insanity not found even in H.P. Lovecraft’s worst nightmares. Other times, it gives us precisely what we need when we need it.
Enjoy. And head over to Birth. Movies. Death. to listen to a different version of the song!
