Halloween themed songs

Post by sinus supremus » Fri Oct 31, 2008 19:50

I am making a playlist of Halloween songs. I need songs about ghosts, Halloween, blood, vamps, the moon, the dead, zombies, you name it. Help!

The Postmarks do an excellent cover of Ministry's "Every Day is Halloween."

pretty much anything by zombina and the skeletones would apply, and they even did a whole halloween-themed cd-r a few years ago.

Heh, I never need much of an excuse to link to this-

the trouble with personalities, they're too wrapped up in style
it's too personal; they're in love with their own guile

there's a Jeffrey Lewis song. Can't think of it at the moment....
duh. just looked in my iTunes:
If You Shoot The Head You Kill The Ghoul.

But I guess this is useless now as Halloween just ended.

half the last tullycraft album would qualify!viz:
fangs on bats
when georgette plays a goth
dracula screams in tiger style
if you take away the make-up, then the vampires they will die
1 wasn't for the money
2 wasn't for the show
3 is GO! GO! GO!

This is far too late, or course, but i'm assuming Halloween (or pretty much anything else) by the Misfits made the cut...?

(Everard, good shout on the Skeletones. That Hallowe'en ep is ace. Shame Jonny Tokyo left recently - he's making very loud and odd noises in a.P.A.t.T. these days).

Til Death Do Us Party by the Groovie Ghoulies would've been good too... and Secret Vampires by Bis...

damn, i wish i'd seen this thread BEFORE Hallowe'en.

For next year maybe... a zombie treble:

Lardpony, 'Zombie Bride'
The Motherfuckers, 'Zombies'
Jonathan Coulton, 'RE: Your Brains'

The third one is dead funny. Have a listen.

He played that at the Zombie World Record in Nottingham on Friday.
It was great!

I'm bumping this for the season.

I made a mix a couple years ago that I'm quite happy with.

Trick And Treat
01. Nouvelle Vague - Bela Lugosi's Dead
02. The Dream Syndicate - Halloween
03. Siouxsie & The Banshees - Halloween
04. Beat Happening - Gravedigger Blues
05. Metric - Monster Hospital [MSTRKRFT Remix]
06. The Birthday Massacre - Horror Show
07. M83 - Graveyard Girl
08. Future Bible Heroes - I'm A Vampire
09. Joy Division - Dead Souls
10. Echo And The Bunnymen - The Killing Moon
11. Smashing Pumpkins - Eye
12. The Postmarks - Every Day Is Halloween
13. Eels - Teenage Witch
14. Bright Eyes - Devil Town
15. Sufjan Stevens - They Are Night Zombies!! etc.
16. Do They Know It's Halloween?


I'm still looking for more suggestions, though. I'm DJing at a Halloween show on the 21st (which Persian Rugs are playing!).

This was a quick one I made on Spotify last year, although it's mostly punk and a sprinkle of pop, and it definitely needs more Goblin tracks: http://open.spotify.com/user/dukeofboo/ ... AklTpLoUw3

We have a CD of spooky sounds from Tesco, it adds a lot of atmosphere - would recommend.
