Hallowe’en can be great fun, but don’t you find yourself all to often being forced to get down n’ funky to the Monster Mash just one too many times? Well, what you need is the Red Dog Music hallowe’en playlist!
Now, I’ll admit, this isn’t necessarily a playlist that’s designed to pack the dancefloor, but then, I’m not really a dancer. However, if, like me, you enjoy to spend hallowe’en in your favourite easy chair wearing your warmest slippers having loosened your wool tie underneath your tweed waistcoat while a generous glass of supermarket own-brand tawny port occupies your left hand, allowing your right hand to tap in (almost) time with the soundtrack that emenates from your most favouritist comfortablist headphones, then this might be the playlist for you.
The ultimate hallowe’en playlist!
So, fire on, lights down, headphones on, phone off, volume up and enjoy, what we think anyway is, a pretty awesome collection of tunes that seem appropriately suited to the day…
Ryan Adams – Halloweenhead
Let’s start off everyone’s favourite alt.country songsmith and Taylor Swift interviewer.
Fiona Apple – Werewolf
A cracking tune from our favourite shadowboxer…
R Dean Taylor – There’s a Ghost in My House
All the way from Wigan Casino!
The Cramps – I Was a Teenage Werewolf
Moving on with the pioneers of psychobilly:
Marissa Nadler – Hungry is the Ghost
Not only is the song title hallowe’en-themed, but she’s also signed to (the rather more tenuously hallowe’en-related) Sacred Bones Records!
The Cranberries – Zombie
Featuring my favourite one-finger guitar chord.
The Misfits – Halloween
Horror punk. Surely none more hallowe’en!
Alison Krauss – Ghost in This House
Simply amazing. Originally by Shenandoah, but this is my pick.
Willie Nelson – Gravedigger
For the Archer fans out there: Outlaw country!
Veronica Falls – Found Love in a Graveyard
If you haven’t listened to this record, give it a go…
Dusty Springfield – Spooky
Staple of my record box.
Kate Bush – Hammer Horror
Grimes – Scream ft. Aristophanes
Hope you’re not scared of frogs…
Frank Sinatra – Witchcraft
Great tune, although it is on the Fifty Shades soundtrack…
Coleman Hawkins – Phantomesque
Get your tenor sax on…
Robert Johnson – Hellhound on my Trail
Quite simply amazing.
Happy hallowe’en all y’all!
