When it comes to Halloween music, I can only listen to “Monster Mash” so many times before tearing my eyebrow hair out (I shave my balding skull). If Halloween in Raleigh is really going to be “killer”, we need a play list to set the energy level at the haunted attraction. I usually hit shuffle on the ipod while working, and my new favorite sort-of-halloween-themed-song is I’m Gonna DJ by REM. Casey Casem, voice of Shaggy, would have to agree. Wait, is he still alive? Have he and Dick Clark ever been seen together? We would be honored to have one or both of those musical celebrities haunt our forest, alive or dead (but preferably dead – its so much scarier for the patrons).
Coming in at #2 is Psycho Killer by Talking Heads. And, yes, I “got any Blue Oyster Cult”. Don’t Fear the Reaper makes the cut, for sure. Drop in Boris the Spider by The Who, and Highway to Hell by AC/DC, and we’ve got a cool 15 minutes.
Also making the cut:
Nightmare on My Street – Fresh Prince
Ghost Town – The Specials
Hell – Squirrel Nut Zippers
So, our Halloween play list is currently pretty thin, and we need your help. Suggestions?
