"The End Is Near, The Plague Is Here"

So, I saw Epidemic, a sort-of-a-horror movie from Lars von Trier's early days, and whaddayaknow! It turns out that Dancer in the Dark wasn't the first film for which he co-wrote a song:

The juxtaposition between the quite horrifying final scene and this totally 80s end credits pop is amazing in an almost Lynchian way. It's a shame that Epidemic wasn't released in the US (at least according to IMDb) and therefore wasn't eligible for the Best Original Song Oscar, because obviously it would have deserved to win hands down.
