Hearing about Roky’s passing today brought to mind “If You Have Ghosts,” his 1981 single from “The Evil One.” Much of Roky’s catalog was divided between the melancholy and the macabre, but “Ghosts” touches on both in that fragile and otherworldly tone that Roky brought to everything he wrote and sang. We all have ghosts, he seems to imply, and while that can be frightening, there’s something comforting in the idea as well. Essentially, you’re never entirely alone. Hope it’s warm and bright where you are, Roky, and there’s nothing but monster movies on the television. The Evil One on Discogs.
