Any Major Halloween Mix 1

October 26th, 2009 Leave a comment Go to comments

halloween2This is the first of two Halloween mixes I”ll be posting this week. The present mix, timed to fit on standard CD-R, is supposed to comprise vaguely creepy or eerie music. The kind of stuff that might  freak out Bart, Lisa and Milhouse in their treehouse. Ghosts, spooks, witches, devils, murderers, weird people (like the coffin-building boy in Florence and the Machine”s excellent song), voodoo and so on. Marie Floating Over The Backyard apparently still scares Any Minor Dude”s friend, two years after he first heard it.

The second mix, which will go up mid-week, will be a bit more lighthearted, and even without the overcooked Monster Mash and Rocky Horror Picture Show.

I have a good few songs left over for a mix next Halloween. But there are two ghostly soldier songs I’ll want to add to this lot, one as an antidote to Warren Zevon’s more ubiquitous Halloween song:
Warren Zevon – Roland the Headless Thompson Gunner.mp3
Stan Ridgway – Camouflage.mp3

    Cool to see some love for Stan Ridgway. A friend’s fiancee is in an Americana band and I was touting Camouflage as a song that they should cover.

    oh yeah!!!! Fresh blood. Right on time, I can’t wait to play them at my Halloween Quiz tonight.
    And dead soldiers – great pick. Two of my all time favourite songs. Ever…from there to Johannesburg.

    Really enjoyed these – thanks. Along similar lines I’d recommend The Hoodoo Gurus’ Hayride To Hell.
