I had a handful of good Halloween songs in my library, three to be exact, Dragula and Living Dead Girl by Rob Zombie and Micheal Jackson’s Thriller. I wanted more to play for the people out trick or treating tonight and had been in search of Kill of the Night by Gin Wigmore for a while. They finally added it to the Canadian iTunes store just in time.
This sent me on a quick search of the Internet for Halloween songs and got me downloading classics I already knew, but did not have, like Stevie Wonders Superstition , Bad Moon Rising by CCR, Don’t Fear the Reaper by Blue Öyster Cult and a couple of Chris de Burg songs (well, truth be told, I bought an entire Chris de Burg album because I had lost my CD) Don’t Pay the Ferryman and Spanish Train.
Then I bought a couple I knew less well, but really liked when I heard the samples like The Devil Went Down to Georgia by the Charlie Daniels Band. I had heard the name before, but never the actual song, or if I did, It didn’t stick in my head. I also bought Bad Things by Jace Everett. Most people probably know it as the theme song from True Blood, but I had only heard small pieces because I usually skip forward through the opening credits (sorry above the line production people, no offense intended).
Hopefully that’s the end for today, I did just get paid, but still, shouldn’t be buying so much music when people are already asking me what I wan’t for Christmas.
What’s on your Halloween playlist?
