Remember the 'other' great horror music video of the '80s?



Have you grown tired of all the stories celebrating the 30th anniversary of Michael Jackson’s Thriller last week? (Well, except for Steve's article, of course.) Today's Lost and Found looks at another '80s horror video: Walter Egan’s Full Moon Fire.

Hailing from New York, Egan is best remembered for the classic '70s song Magnet and Steel (inspired by Stevie Nicks). However, seven months before the landmark Thriller video, Egan released this howling good song that should have been a big hit but peaked at No. 46 on the Billboard charts. The premise of the video is the singer turns into a werewolf with his date at the movies – just saying it sounds very familiar. Egan still is active in the music business, releasing new music in 2011. Check his official website for the details.
