Inktober Day 23: Utai Gaikotsu
Another type of skeletal yōkai is the Utai-gaikotsu (歌い骸骨), or "singing skeleton", a continuation on the tale of Taira no Masakado. It is said that if a person is killed in a very violent or unjust way, evil energy will possess the deceased's skull, and it will float along following those who wronged it, singing a terrible song about the manner in which it was killed, or to warn others. The tale goes that two merchants robbed a tradesman and stole all of his money and wares, claiming it as their own. One day, after becoming very rich, they were walking down the street and heard a beautiful singing voice. Locating it coming from the bushes, they found a skeleton singing a song. It introduced itself to the merchants and asked if they liked its song. The merchants, never to miss a money-making opportunity, said it was wonderful, and ran off to tell others of the singing skull, and to charge money to see it. The people said they didn't believe such a thing, so the merchants produced the skull. The skull began to sing a song about how the merchants had killed it and stolen all of its money, and the merchants got was was coming to them thanks to the skull's warning.
