Happy Halloween! And what is on your soundtrack today?

This post is more than 2 years old.

What's going to be on your playlist today to help celebrate Halloween? For me its:

  • Bloodletting by Concrete Blonde. A cool song that got way overplayed at the local bar during college. Now that it is a few years past though it has regained the cool factor for me.
  • Everyday is Halloween by Ministry. This is before they got all industrial and were a bit more like a harsher Depeche Mode.

Any other suggestions? If anyone says Monster Mash I'm banning them forever! ;)

Dead Man's Party - Oingo Boingo.

I totally dig that Ministry song. I still have a 22 minute remix of it from my college days.

Hay Ray, have you heard of last.fm ?

It lets you see exactly what people are listening to in very near real time - my page is http://www.last.fm/user/Tom... for instance. There is a small but growing Coldfusion group on the site too.

I may put some Thriller on later, followed with Forsaken by VNV Nation and a few choice cuts from Within Temptation and Incubus Sukubus :-)

Well I saw the thing comin' out of the sky
It had the one long horn, one big eye.
I commenced to shakin' and I said "ooh-eee"
It looks like a purple people eater to me.

It was a one-eyed, one-horned, flyin' purple people eater.
(one-eyed, one-horned, flyin' purple people eater)
A one-eyed one-horned, flyin' puple people eater
Sure looks stange to me. (one eye?)

Hey Tom...what's the ColdFusion group on Last.FM? I've been a user on there since February, but hadn't seen anything about the group.

BTW, I've harnessed the power of Last.FM combined with Amazon to show my charts with album covers on my blog at http://further.gregnilsen.com. If anyone would be interested in the code, let me know.

All My Chemical Romance....

Just got the new CD The Black Parade and it rocks! Just as good as Three Cheers for Sweet Revenge....

I'll mix in some Queen of the Damned soundtrack today as well... a little Static X, some Chester Benningtion, and of course Korn, good stuff...

I'm listening to the soundtrack for Phantom of the Opera.

James - for those of us at MAX, we heard that dang soundtrack everytime we went back to the Venetian hotel rooms. ;) I liked the soundtrack before MAX - now I'm not so sure. ;)

Btw, Ray, check the "Add Comments" window in Safari. It seems that the bottom-most elements don't render properly.

Tom...I searched for it, but it didn't come up for me...maybe it's just a bad search page.

How about some Danzig? Devil's Plaything, Heart of the Devil, Possession. I'll be cranking Danzig II - Lucifuge, right now.
