Listen to The Sisters of Mercy’s ‘Lucretia My Reflection’ from American Horror Story

The Sisters of Mercy Floodland

When I was a radio DJ years ago, The Sisters of Mercy was one band I played on my show religiously. Along with The Cult, The Sisters of Mercy produced some of the best post-punk rock music, and with the coolest beat when it came to getting out on the dance floor.

So I was ecstatic to hear The Sisters of Mercy’s track ‘Lucretia My Reflection‘ played on FX’s American Horror Story last Wednesday night (Season 5, Episode 10 — “She Gets Revenge“).

Lucretia My Reflection‘ is from the band’s amazing second studio album Floodland. Released in 1987, it still holds up today as one of the best rock albums released.

Listen to The Sisters of Mercy’s ‘Lucretia My Reflection‘ extended version below to see what I mean.

And, if you’re throwing a Christmas party this year, be sure to include this track if you want people on the dance floor. It’s one of those songs that gets people up and moving even if they think they don’t feel like it.
