Goths Unplugged

Tonight I was in the mood for some dark and lovely acoustic/unplugged versions of songs by goth bands. Here's a few of my favorites. And thanks to Anann for several of the song suggestions!

Peter Murphy performed his A Strange Kind of Love and the intro to Bauhaus' Bela Lugosi's Dead acoustically in Stockholm in June 2013.

Robert Smith singing and performing "Boys Don't Cry" for MTV Unplugged in 1991.

And you'll likely really enjoy his acoustic version of Lullaby.

Here's Close to Me acoustic version, too.

The acoustic unplugged version of Love Cats is really jazzy and kinda weird.

Robert Smith joined Korn for an acoustic version of In Between Days along with Korn's unplugged version of Make Me Bad.

Gorgeous and haunting acoustic version of A Forest. Swoon!

Wayne Hussey performing Wasteland at the Modified Arts Centre in Phoenix AZ, USA on September 2008.

He also performed Tower of Strength among other acoustic songs in his set.

David J. from Bauhaus performing Love and Rockets' The Dog-End of a Day Gone By acoustically.

Peter Murphy performed "Cuts You Up" among other songs at an all acoustic show at SXSW in 2011.

I haven't researched this closely, but this appears to be a 1991 acoustic show for KROQ (the LA-area alternative radio station): Siouxsie and the Banshees with My Life with the Thrill Kill Kult.

Here's Nick Cave and Warren Ellis doing an acoustic version of The Mercy Seat.

Expect this post to be edited and grow, so come back tomorrow and see what other goth goodies we've found!
