Today's Tune: "White Witch" By Angel Witch

Award winning veteran American actress Agnes Moorehead died on this day (April 30), in 1974. Our 'Today's Tune' was selected to honor Moorehead. It relates to some of her work in various horror movies and her most famous television role, the witch Endora in the long running series Bewitched.

The Wikipedia page on Moorehead introduces her thusly...

Agnes Robertson Moorehead (December 6, 1900 – April 30, 1974) was an American actress. [1] Although she began with the Mercury Theatre, appeared in more than seventy films beginning with Citizen Kane and on dozens of television shows during a career that spanned more than thirty years, Moorehead is most widely known to modern audiences for her role as the witch Endora in the series Bewitched.

While rarely playing leads in films, Moorehead's skill at character development and range earned her one
Emmy Award and two Golden Globe awards in addition to four Academy Award and six Emmy Award nominations. Moorehead's transition to television won acclaim for drama and comedy. She could play many different types, but often portrayed haughty, arrogant characters...

Since I was thinking of you today Agnes, here is a witchy track, by a witchy band. The British goth metalers (Is that a real word?), Angel Witch bring us "White Witch" (1980).
