I decided to make a mini Halloween youtube playlist with some songs that I felt fit with a holiday that celebrates all things dead and creepy. Hope everyone had a Happy Halloween!
Dead Man’s Bones – Dead Man’s Bones
This whole album would have worked in this post, I picked this one because I don’t know when else I could post a song that includes a woman crying in the middle without it sticking out as weird and sad.
Radiohead – Give up the Ghost
One bonus to being a ghost is the fact that you could have sat in on these sessions unnoticed.
Timber Timbre – Demon Host
Just like Dead Man’s Bones, another band that sounds perfect for Halloween.
Sam Roberts – Waking the Dead
One of my favourite Sam Roberts songs. This was the only audio I could find of this song (if you double click the youtube pane it will open to this sad tribute to some persons cat, Smokey,… RIP Smokey).
Talking Heads – Psycho Killer
August is one of my favourite months. Not because of the warm weather–even thought that is pretty awesome. Not because it means a break/vacation from school–school’s for fools kids, and not because of my birthday… Gotcha — that is exactly why I love August… I know some people try to ignore their birthday, but clearly I am not that type of person (who passes up a guiltless excuse to eat cake?). I also know I’m late with this playlist and that August is almost at its halfway mark, but better late than never I hope.
I took a nostalgic route to this months mix, as usual. Most of the songs remind me of my month abroad. Regardless, I hope you like the medley of Avi Buffalo, Clap Your Hands Say Yeah!, Broken Social Scene, and Talking Heads to round off the month with. Enjoy!
