Marquis and the Ghost of Peg Entwistle for Gothtober Day 5

Visit the Gothtober Countdown Calendar and CLICK DAY FIVE to sing along with Marquis!

Gothtober is made in Echo Park, CA, which is in very close proximity of the Hollywood sign. We have many ghosts in Hollywood, but one of the most legendary is the ghost of Peg Entwistle, who ended her life by jumping off of the top of the”H” in the sign in the year 1932 at the age of 24.

The first part of the song contains the words of her suicide note. It was found in her purse by a passersby. While this tune is quite morbid, it’s also quite catchy, and hours after hearing the song, I’ve ended up humming it to myself more than once. Is it just a regular ol’ earworm… or is it PEG’S GHOST?!? We may never know…

This song has NEVER been heard before, debuting today, Marquis said he can’t wait to try it out with the whole band, and neither can we! Until then, sing along with the words below if you’re in a halloween mood:

I am afraid, I am a coward. 
I am sorry for everything. 
If I had done this a long time ago, it would have saved a lot of pain.”
Found my shoes, 
my purse, my coat 
At the icon of this town 
Found my sad little note
And the body I threw down 
Everybody jump like Peg
Throw yourself & twist your leg
Toss your head & let it shake
Leap until you feel it break
You can see this and other dark musical favorites played LIVE by Marquis and The Rhythm Howlers
