Guitar tabs with lyrics
When Jonathan Coulton debuted this song at a concert in Chicago, he told the audience he wanted to make a happy song, so he thought he'd make it about sunshine and blue skies and call it "Blue Sunny Day". But then he noticed that the word "blue" could have another meaning... He wondered who would be "blue" about a sunny day. Vampires, of course, but then he thought, no. What's more obvious than Jonathan Coulton writing another song about a sad and/or lonely monster? But then he was just like, "nah, it's totally a vampire".
