I'll have to track that one down... right now all I have for a zombie playlist is Rockapella doing a cover of "Zombie Jamboree", and two by a semi-obscure artist by the name of Voltaire (he did a couple of songs for the Cartoon Network show The Grim Adventures of Billy and Mandy, if that helps at all), "Brains" and "Zombie Prostitute".  What other songs could I throw into a Zombie Fluxx playlist?  "Feed My Frankenstein" by Alice Cooper?  Michael Jackson's "Thriller"?

Oh, and speaking of Zombie Prostitute, when I saw Voltaire in concert I had my Zombie Fluxx deck with me... he signed one of the Zombie cards and turned it into a Zombie Prostitute.  I'm still trying to figure out what on earth to do with her for a Goal...

to play while we're playing Zombie Fluxx:

Re: Your Brains
Heya Tom, it's Bob from the office down the hall
Good to see you buddy, how've you been?
Thing have been OK for me except that I'm a zombie now
I really wish you'd let us in
I think I speak for all of us when I say I understand
Why you folks might hesitate to submit to our demand
But here's an FYI: you're all gonna die screaming

All we want to do is eat your brains
We're not unreasonable, I mean, no one's gonna eat your eyes
All we want to do is eat your brains
We're at an impasse here, maybe we should compromise:
If you open up the doors
We'll all come inside and eat your brains

I figured it was an on-purpose reference to the song!  :-)

Here is one I'm kicking around....

"Kill Tom" - creeper

You can not win if you have this card.
If the Rules or Goal currently allow for your victory, discard all rules,
goals, creepers and/or keepers from all players that would satisfy the win.

This card moves in the counter-turn direction any time the goal is changed

As a clarification of the name of the card: back in college, on poker night,
I had created a game where the last card turned up was wild. But if you had
that card in your hand, it killed your hand.
One of my friends, Thom, would always have a winning hand and (every game I
can remember) he would get killed.
We renamed the game "Kill Tom"
