Sonic Sunday: The Halloween Mixx

The "Halloween-ish" edition of Sonic Sunday was merely to get you in a proper autumnal mood, but with Halloween nearly here, it's time for the real deal. Whether you're a fan of the campy or creepy, there's something in this mix for everyone.

Tales From the Crypt Theme, Danny Elfman

"Monster Mash," Bobby "Boris" Pickett - I was working in the lab late one night/When my eyes beheld an eerie sight/For my monster from his slab began to rise/And suddenly to my surprise/He did the mash/He did the monster mash

"The Time Warp," Richard O'Brien - With a bit of a mind flip/You're into the time slip/And nothing can ever be the same/You're spaced out on sensation/Like you're under sedation/Let's do the Time Warp again

"Pet Sematary," The Ramones - Under the arc of weather-stained boards/Ancient goblins, and warlords/Come out the ground, not making a sound/The smell of death is all around/And the night when the cold wind blows/No one cares, nobody knows

"Furnace Room Lullaby," Neko Case - I'm wrapped in the depths of these deeds that have made me/I can't bring a sound from my head though I try/I can't seem to find my way up from the basement/A demon holds my place on earth 'til I die

"Ave Santini" (The Omen Theme), Jerry Goldsmith

"Cry Little Sister," Gerard McMann - A last fire will rise behind those eyes/Black house will rock, blind boys don't lie/Immortal fear, that voice so clear/Through broken walls, that scream I hear

"Dream Warriors," Dokken - I lie awake and dread the lonely nights/I'm not alone/I wonder if these heavy eyes can face the unknown

"Devil Woman," Cliff Muthahumpin' Richard - Crystal ball on the table/Showing the future, the past/Same cat with them evil eyes/You'd better get out of there fast

"Werewolves of London," Warren Zevon - If you hear him howling around your kitchen door/Better not let him in/Little old lady got mutilated late last night/Werewolves of London again

The Munsters Theme, Los Straitjackets

"Fright Night," J. Geils Band - Fright Night (Fright Night)/Who's it gonna be tonight?/Lock your doors and windows tight/Soon you'll all believe I'm right/We're all in for a most frightening night

"I Was A Teenage Werewolf," The Cramps - A Midwest monster of the highest grade/All my teachers thought it was growing pains/Oh, no, no/Somebody stop this pain

"Bloodletting (The Vampire Song)," Concrete Blonde - There's a crack in the mirror and a bloodstain on the bed/Oh, you were a vampire and baby I'm the walking dead

Halloween Theme, John Carpenter

"Halloween," The Misfits - Candy apples and razor blades/Little dead are soon in graves/I remember Halloween/This day anything goes/Burning bodies hanging from poles/I remember Halloween

"Bela Lugosi's Dead," Bauhaus - The bats have left the bell tower/The victims have been bled/Red velvet lines the black box/Bela Lugosi's dead

The Twilight Zone Theme, Marius Constant

"(Everday Is) Halloween," Ministry - Well any time, any place, anywhere that I go/All the people seem to stop and stare/They say 'Why are you dressed like it's Halloween?/You look so absurd, you look so obscene'

"Thriller," Michael Jackson - It's close to midnight and something evil's lurking in the dark/Under the moonlight, you see a sight that almost stops your heart/You try to scream but terror takes the sound before you make it/You start to freeze as horror looks you right between the eyes/You're paralyzed

All of this great music can be purchased at Amazon:

Miss Sarah said...

"Cry Little Sister" is one of my favorite songs!! And it was the perfect song in THE LOST BOYS. OOOh these songs totally put me in the Halloween mood, thanks :-)

Can I just tell you how much it stinks that my office blocks me from MediaFire? Apparently, they think listening to your Sunday tunes isn't work-related.

They just don't know...

Very nice! Furnace Room Lullaby is a Hallowe'en favourite with me, as well.

Have you heard Ryan Gosling's band Dead Man's Bones yet? They are Hallowe'enish and are far better than your average actor who suddenly decides he's a singer type of band.

Nice collection!

Where's "Shout At The Devil"!?


Who Does This Broad Think She Is?

My photo
I am a winsome muse who was sent to Earth to inspire an artist to turn a vacant building into the world's coolest disco roller rink. We fell in love along the way, and I foolishly gave up my immortality. When the disco craze ended and all the roller rinks were shut down, that lazy bum wouldn't get a job. We broke up and I was stuck on Earth with nothing to do and no one to inspire. So, now I write a blog.
