American Horror Story kicked off its new season a few weeks ago, and this season is focused on a freak show set in the 1950’s. Jessica Lange, again plays a woman who is much more than she seems at face value, this time, the proprietor of the circus, Elsa Mars. A running theme in the show seems to be a character singing a song that is relevant to the storyline, but also relevant to today’s pop culture. Sarah Paulson, who plays a ‘Two Headed Lady’ sang Fiona Apples’ ‘Criminal’, and sang it damn well for that matter. Jessica Lange took a turn singing a very appropriate, ‘Gods and Monsters’, a Lana Del Rey cover, despite the Jim Morrison reference.
Featured below are both the original and the scene from American Horror Story.
