Music Friday Pre-Halloween Edition: Fifth Harmony Sings About How You Shouldn’t Expect Jewelry When You’re in Love With a Monster

Welcome to our special pre-Halloween edition of Music Friday when we bring you fun songs with jewelry, gemstones or precious metals in the title or lyrics. Today, we have the girl group Fifth Harmony singing the theme song to the newly released animated film, Hotel Transylvania 2.

In the song called “I’m in Love With a Monster,” we learn that spooky guys don’t like to buy jewelry for their girlfriends. The girls sing, “Oh, he’ll buy me a thorn before he’ll buy me a rose / Be covered in dirt before I’m covered in gold.”

The sassy, high-energy video for “I’m in Love With a Monster” shows the girls of Fifth Harmony exploring a haunted mansion while being pursued by creepy characters. Channelling The Supremes of the 1960s, every band member plays a key character from Hotel Transylvania 2, and each of their live vignettes is juxtaposed with an animated clip from the movie.

The music video premiered on the mammoth Sony billboard in Times Square on August 27, and has been viewed on YouTube more than 16 million times. The movie was released in theaters on September 25.

“There are few groups out there that can match the incredibly fun feel and animated vision that Genndy Tartakovsky is bringing to Hotel Transylvania 2, and Fifth Harmony knocked it out of the park,” said Lia Vollack, president of Worldwide Music for Sony Pictures. “The song is exactly what we were hoping for.”

Upon its release, “I’m In Love With A Monster,” began climbing multiple iTunes charts. It landed in the Top 10 of the Overall Top Songs Chart and on the Top Pop Songs Chart.

Formed on the second season of The X Factor USA in July of 2012, the Miami-based Fifth Harmony is one of 2015’s biggest musical success stories. The group, which includes Ally Brooke Hernandez, Normani Hamilton, Lauren Jauregui, Camila Cabello and Dinah Jane Hansen, was named “Favorite New Artist” at the Nickelodeon Kids’ Choice Awards, performed at the White House Annual Easter Egg Roll and received universally positive reviews for its headline Reflection Tour. Wrote the Houston Chronicle, “You could feel the electricity snaking through the crowd.“

Get into the Halloween spirit and join Fifth Harmony in a fun romp through the Hotel Transylvania. The music video and lyrics are below. Enjoy!

“I’m In Love With a Monster” (from Hotel Transylvania 2)
Written by Harmony Samuels, Carmen Reece, Sarah Mancuso, Edgar Etienne and Ericka Coulter. Performed by Fifth Harmony.

Oh, he’ll buy me a thorn before he’ll buy me a rose
Be covered in dirt before I’m covered in gold
He’s trying it on, yeah, he’s ticking me off
Say what you want but I won’t ever be told
‘Cause I’m in love with a monster

Friends say I’m stupid and I’m out of my mind
But without you, boy, I’d be bored all the time
No, I don’t really care for the same conversation
Got everything I need, and I’d rather be chasing
Chasing love, with a monster

I’m in love (I’m in love)
I’m in love (I’m in love)
I’m in love with a monster
I’m in love (I’m in love)
I’m in love (I’m in love)
I’m in love with a monster
I’m in love with a monster

Wrap me in leather before you wrap me in lace
We breaking rules like we changing the game
He’s trying it on, and he’s ticking me off
Say what you want but I won’t ever be told
I’m in love with a monster

My daddy told me, I should have better taste
But I’d rather pay to see the look on his face
No, I don’t really care for the lame conversation
Got everything I need, and I’d rather be chasing
Chasing love, with a monster

I’m in love (I’m in love)
I’m in love (I’m in love)
I’m in love with a monster
I’m in love (I’m in love)
I’m in love (I’m in love)
I’m in love with a monster
I’m in love with a monster (hey)

Sweeter you try, they don’t, not getting love from it
Ain’t worth a dime ’cause I just don’t get enough from it
(Leave it to me, don’t you see, I don’t run from it
Bitter the better, hey, hey, hey, hey)

You make me crazy, but I love it (I love it baby)
You make me crazy baby, but I love it (pretty baby)
You make me crazy, but I love it
You make me crazy baby, but I love it
I’m in love with a monster

Everybody now
Did you know (did you know)
Did you know (did you know)
Everybody loves a monster (mmm yeah)
Did you know (did you know)
Did you know (did you know)
Everybody loves a monster (yeah)
I’m in love (we’re in love) with a monster

(I’m in love)
I’m in love with a monster
Are you in love with a monster?(I’m in love)
I’ll never find another monster
I wanna know, I wanna know
I’m in love with a monster

Hit me, hit me, hit me
One, two, three, four, five, six, seven, eight
Thank you, goodnight
