Feb. 13th, 2011 09:15 pm "Thriller" 26 Papa Benjamin
"Papa Benjamin" has echoes of both "White Zombie" and Val Lewton's "I Walked with a Zombie." John Ireland portrays a band leader who is seeking "a certain sound." The Band Leader finds his "certain sound" by listening to a voodoo ritual. After the song becomes a big band hit, Papa Benjamin demands his royalties.
