Howdy Kids!


Well, might as well get this party going again and spin some more spooky music. This is not too hard for me considering this is the type of music I listen to on a regular basis..hehe.

Anyway, What are some of your favorite "Spooky" songs to listen to round this time of year?
Here's a random 10 song playlist of mine to get thiungs rollin'. (bit of the old, bit of the new as usual):


1. Nox Arcana - Lair of the Vampire
2. SSQ - Tonight (We'll Make Love until we Die)
3. God Module - Spooky
4. Bauhaus - Stigmata Martyr
5. Los Straightjackets - "The Munsters" theme
6. Sisters of Mercy - Ribbons
7. Otep - House of Secrets/Suicide Trees
8. Rob Zombie - House of 1,000 Corpses
9. Rick James - Superfreak!
10. Diablo Swing Orchestra - Heroines


11. (Bonus Track): Syreeta Wright - Happy Birthday to Me..=)


Who's next???...

Great topic.

I love all quirky, classic Halloween tunes. One of my faves...and it was used in Private School, is

Sam the Sham & the Pharoes - Little Red Riding Hood

Some cool, fun 80s songs I like adding to my playlist:

The Big O - Monster Mash (from Return Of The Living Dead II)

Pseudo Echo - His Eyes

Ramones - Pet Semetary

I also love listening to horror movie soundtracks, scores and VA.

Some of my favorites are Prince Of Darkness, Return Of The Living Dead, Halloween II & Christine.

Prince Of Darkness - Opening Credits

If you listen to Pandora, I recommend Monster Mash Radio. And Live365 has a great station called Musique Macabre...great mix! Lots of 80's stuff there. [Wink]

Ronnie .. I'll definitely be playing some of the score from "Halloween II" and "The Return of the Living Dead" on my boombox for the trick 'r treaters on Halloween night.

Here's a few more tunes I enjoy for Halloween (not necessarily spooky though):

Psycho Killer - Talking Heads
Cry Little Sister - Gerard McMann
Dead Man's Party - Oingo Boingo
Nightmares - A Flock of Seagulls
Crazy Train - Ozzy Osbourne
Halloween - Siouxsie and the Banshees
Scary Monsters - David Bowie
Ghost Town - The Specials
Werewolves of London - Warren Zevon
Bad Moon Rising - CCR
Welcome To My Nightmare - Alice Cooper
Creeps - Josie Cotton
Don't Fear the Reaper - Blue Oyster Cult
How Soon Is Now? - The Smiths
Eaten By The Monster of Love - Sparks
Love Will Tear Us Apart - Joy Division

These might be considered overplayed, but I still enjoy them:

The Haunted House of Rock - Whodini
Nightmare On My Street - DJ Jazzy Jeff and the Fresh Prince

That's a great playlist Valley..Love Psycho Killer & Scary Monsters.


Here's another song I've always loved listening to this time of year, hell..just in general. It's just such a great jungle beat track with a cool eerie vibe. [Cool]

FUN BOY THREE - THE LUNATICS HAVE TAKEN OVER THE ASYLUM (1982)

 -


..and on a related note, The electronic/industrial group "COLLIDE" has a pretty trippy cover version of this song too, (the best cover I've heard of this song anyway).


COLLIDE - THE LUNATICS HAVE TAKEN OVER THE ASYLUM (2004)

The record would be so cool.

If you made some mods to your car you could play the record. It would be hard keeping the needle down though when you go over bumps [Big Grin]

If anyone got into you're car you would have to tell them to get in the back seat. Your girlfriend complains that she has to sit in the back and you explain, do you want some tunes or not? Well then, in that case the record player rides shotgun [Big Grin]

you know i was thinking that monster mash is one of those tunes that you could listen to anytime of year, yet it gets confined to the halloween season.
