American Horror Story: Freak Show Trailer Song – Extended Trailer

American Horror Story: Freak Show Trailer Song
Song: Carousel
Artist: Melanie Martinez

The Freak Show is coming to town on October 8, and I could not be more excited. Carnivals are all the rage, and the freakiness attached to them is perfectly suited for the season surrounding Halloween. Past seasons have thrown us into a haunted house, an insane asylum, and a modern day witches’ coven. Now we’ll step on up to a Freak Show in the middle of the dustbowl era, and if past seasons are indication enough, there will be terrors scarier than the “freaks.”

The American Horror Story: Freak Show trailer song is called “Carousel.” It’s a haunting little pop ditty off the first EP of The Voice Season 3 contestant Melanie Martinez. I love the added bang, bang punctuation in the trailer for an added level of intensity for an otherwise eerie track. Also check out some of her live performances covering Brittany Spears, The White Stripes and La Roux on The Voice here.

This horse is too slow
We’re always this close
Almost, almost
We’re a freak show

Right, right when I’m near
It’s like you disappear
Where’d you go
My dear, you’re a freakshow

And it’s all fun and games,
’til somebody falls in love,
but you’ve already bought a ticket,
and there’s no turning back now

Round and round like a horse
On a carousel
Will I catch up to love
I can never tell
