Legend of Long Time Ago

While sharing a few kinds of legends and mysteries with my colleague like about the truth story of Slit Mouth Lady from Japan, Silk King's 20 years unsolved mystery and out of sudden I thought of the famous killing music 'Gloomy Sunday' made by a Hungarian composer who named  Rezső Seress
and this is the thing that inspired me to blog about this legend issue.

First of all, Imma going to talk about the Slit Mouth Lady truth stories first..

There's a lady in Japan named 'Kuchisake-Onna' (Slit Mouth Women) is a women which is mutilated by a jealous husband and return as a malicious spirit.When rumors of alleged sightings began spreading in 1979, it spread throughout the country and caused panic in many towns. There are even reports of schools allowing children to go home only in groups escorted by teachers for safety, and of police increasing their patrols.

This is because when there's a children walking alone at night may encounter a woman wearing a surgical mask, this is not an unusual sight in Japan as people wear them to protect others from their colds or sickness. The woman will stop the child and ask, 'Am I beautiful?' If the child answers no, they are killed with a pair of scissors which the woman carries. If they answer yes, the woman pulls away the mask, revealing that her mouth is slit from ear to ear and asks 'Am I beautiful now?'. If the child answers no, he/she will be cut in half. If he/she answers yes, then she will slit his/her mouth like hers. It is impossible to run away from her, as she will simply reappear in front of the victim.
When the legend reappeared in the 1970s rumors of ways to escape also emerged. When she asks you, you must say that she is pretty two times in a row, so that she will become confused and her victim can escape while she is lost in thought. Some sources say she can also be confused by answering her question with, rather than yes or no, "You are average." Unsure of what to do, she will give you enough time to escape. Another escape route is to tell her you have a previous engagement; she will pardon her manners and excuse herself from your presence. In some variations of the tale, she can be distracted by throwing fruit or sweets at her which she will pick up, thus giving the victim a chance to run.[2] One other way is to ask her if you are pretty; she will get confused and leave.[

Well, based on the older version of this legends will be the Kuchisake-onna legend began in the Heian period, with the woman initially covering her face with her kimono. According to Heian mythology, a beautiful woman who was either the wife or concubine of a samurai was unfaithful to him. When he discovered her infidelity, he slit her mouth from ear to ear with a sword and asked "who will think you are beautiful now?"

Now, next legend is going to be about the horror music ever 'Gloomy Sunday' which is composed by a Hungarian composer named Rezső Seress and it was published in the year of 1933..

Well,the song was published as sheet music in late 1933,with lyrics by poet László Jávor, who was inspired by a recent break-up with his fiancée. According to most sources, Jávor rewrote the lyrics after the song's first publication, although he is sometimes described as the original writer of its words.His lyrics contained no political sentiments, but rather were a lament for the death of a beloved and a pledge to meet with the lover again in the afterlife. This version of the song became the best known, and most later rewritings are based around the idea of lost love.

Hmmm...based on the articles I have read, it says that after the mucis succesfully published in Hungary, it became more and more popular to the publics but it became associated with a high number of suicides. Several peoples were jumped into the Danube are all holding copies of sheet
 music.According to some sources, the Hungarian authorities then banned public performances of the song in response for quite sometime until today it finally reveal out the song again and you actually can just listen to the music through YouTube. I guess that there are some cursed or spells occurs in the copies ofsheet musics..who knows right when it comes to those mystery thingy.. After the music got banned for a long period and now it reveals again, there's nothing bad like suicides cases happens again. Well, I guess that the speels or cursed has been broken after a numbers of suicides cases.Until today there's no any specific answer for it.

And of course,I actually went to YouTube to search for the song so that I can listen to it that is it so horrible or maybe something bad going to happen (escort by few of my friends around me *just incase* hahha), guess what...NOTHING HAPPEN although I repeated to play it for couple of times.
Now everyone is safe to watch the video and to listen to the horrible music.

P/s: I personally felt that the music wont be very creepy lahh..
