This week Jen asked for scary songs. Hmmmm, well my nonconformist attitude will not allow me to include Monster Mash (I hate that song, sorry) and I’m sure at least half the lists will include Werewolves of London. I kinda hate Kid Rock for ruining that song for me.
This week, I’m off to NOLA on Thursday for my annual Voodoo Experience trip with my bestie. So much music, so little time. I’ve found it hard to focus on any tunes this week outside of the set list, though I did make a bit of time to listen to some Velvet Underground yesterday at work (RIP Lou). So of course, some of the Voodoo performers made it onto the list of terrifying tracks:
Twin Peaks Theme- Angelo Badalamenti
This song still gets under my skin. This show was so twisted. When I rewatched it a few years ago, it was just as insane as I remember.
Twisted Nerve-Bernard Herrmann
I also included this on my Tarantino post, but it bears repeating. Try walking down a hallway with this playing and not freaking out.
O Fortuna- Carmina Burana
If ever I’m to be sacrificed, I’m fairly certain this cacophony of terror will be the soundtrack.
Lullaby- The Cure
A song with the lyrics, “the spiderman is having me for dinner tonight” is always going on my list of scary! Also, Robert Smith can look a bit terrifying. Plus, I’m thinking about The Cure, because I get to see them this week!
Cemetery Gates- Pantera
Can’t have a Halloween list without a little bit of metal. I love this song for running. AND I’m visiting the House of Shock this week!
Bugs- Pearl Jam
Bugs are gross; thus this song is gross. Also, I get to see Pearl Jam this week. Hey, did I happen to mention that I’m going to NOLA this week for Voodoo?
And finally, no Halloween list would be complete without:
Mr. Crowley- Ozzy Osbourne
A gem from Voodoo 2010.
Stay positive & love your life!
Listening to: Nine Inch Nails – Lights In The Sky
Random fact: I’m getting a little anxious about going in House of Shock. I actually cried in a Universal Studios haunted house. Bring on the stress sweats!
