I’m happy with those who were enthusiastic about this collaborative playlist idea. I might have to rework how I get people to contribute, but I think we got a decent result for a first effort.
So, let’s get to the Halloweeness! Is that a word?
“Michael” – Son of Sam
This is my pick. I remember hearing this effort from Davey Havok and company while still working at the ol’ HT. At first I thought it was about Michael Myers from the Halloween series, but the more I listen to it, I feel like it’s Lucifer speaking towards the archangel Michael. It’s still a creepy tune and worthy of a Halloween playlist.
“No One Lives Forever” – Oingo Boingo
@KyleWMichaud had this to say about this song: “This is on “Casper: A Spirited Beginning . That whole album is pretty nostalgic for me as I remember constantly listening to it on my Walkman in autumn, outside, riding around on my bike. So it resonates with autumn/Halloween to me.”
“My Body’s Zombie For You” – Dead Man’s Bones
@kathall77 offered up this go-to zombie song for the month of October.
“Turn Me On ‘Mr. Deadman'” – The Union Underground
@JamesEnsor‘s contribution to the playlist.
“L’alba Dei Morti Viventi” – Goblin
@SeanCampbell offers up this instantly recoginizable classic.
