This week’s ‘American Horror Story‘ (Season 5, Episode 13 – “Be Our Guest”) was probably one of the best episodes of the series so far, at least when it comes to the music featured.

Because with Mazzy Star’s ‘Fade Into You’ and Giorgio Moroder’s ‘Knights In White Satin‘, it was already pretty darned perfect, but then to throw in Peter Murphy’s ‘Cuts You Up‘ was even thicker icing on the cake.

Cuts You Up‘, was of course, from Peter Murphy’s 1989 album Deep.

The single was released in 1990 and became Murphy’s most successful single ever, hitting number one on Billboard’s Modern Rock Tracks. The violin that runs through it would already make the song quite haunting, but the added acoustic guitars and percussion also made it one of the best dance tracks of the year.

Listen to Peter Murphy’s ‘Cuts You Up‘ in the official video below, and I’ll bet you can’t stop yourself from dancing.
