In honor of tonight's OKC Ghouls Gone Wild parade I've compiled some Halloween picks:
The Gleaming Armament of Genatalia - Chrsitmas on Mars - The Flaming Lips
--- no March of a 1,000 Skeletons this year at the Ghouls Gone Wild OKC parade and that's really too bad... this is the theme music.
Manu Christi - Music for "Blood" - Stan Rdigway & Pietra Wexstun
--- this is really creepy... a little bit goes a long way.
Bonfires On The Heath - The Clientele
--- it can't be Halloween without something burning somewhere, right?
Halloween Spooks - Lambert, Hendricks & Ross
--- an old favorite... odd, silly yet captures the spirit!
Monsters of the Id - Snakebite: Blacktop Ballads - Stan Ridgway
--- the really scary things lie within (as Stan well knows).
Lockjaw - A Capella - Todd Rundgren
--- Todd's always good for a laugh. I wouldn't lie.
Edgar Allan Poe - All The Things You Are - Reynold Philipsek
--- a little gypsy jazz on a dark spooky night.
The Raven - Lou Reed
--- spoken word piece that follows Reynold very nicely.
Frank's Wild Years - swordfishtrombone - Tom Waits
--- had to include some Tom somewhere... dig the Halloween imagery at the end and just imagine its October 31st.
Halloween 2009 - Songs for the New Depression - Loudon Wainwright III
--- no double dip yet but late 2008 was damn scary... Woody woulda liked this one.
The Cask - The Raven - Lou Reed
--- another spoken word piece with nice musical enhancement featuring the distinctive voice of that funny-lookin' little guy, Steve Buscemi.
Great Pumpkin Waltz - Vince Guaraldi Trio
--- a little cliched perhaps but its time to wind down and chill.
Pumpkin Man - Superheterodyne - Rock E. Rollins
--- is it really already all over? This soulful little piece bids adieu to spooks, falling leaves and October.
Do you know who I am?....
