Hey! Happy Monday! Welcome to 1980s Kids Movie week on Morning Cup o’ Music.

Today’s track is from the movie Labyrinth and was one of many of Jim Henson’s ‘movies for kids’ that featured really scary shit. Believe it or not, this scene still manages to disturb me to this very day. The song “Chilly Down” is a drastic departure from the rest of the Bowie laden soundtrack, and it features a whole mess of puppets that do all sorts of crazy shit in front of Jennifer Connelly right before she winds up in the bog of eternal stench. If you listen closely, you’ll hear Kevin Clash (Elmo from Sesame Street) as the first monster to jump in front of her. Damn I’m such a nerd.
