Any Major Halloween Vol. 4

October 27th, 2017 Leave a comment Go to comments

Here is the fourth and most likely final Halloween mix. This lot aims to be a bit spooky for about half of it, and then a little more relaxed, but without going too much novelty, other than that great disco track and that bizarre closing track.

One of the tracks here is in itself slightly spooky: The Doors’ Ghost Song was recorded in 1978, eight years after singer John Morrison’s death. Morrison’s spoken vocals were unscored recordings of his poetry; in 1978 the rest of the band put music to those recordings. The present track has very much a late ’70s disco-influenced vibe. This is what the Doors might have been.

So, four mixes of Halloween, and I have managed without the Rocky Horror Show, and didn’t need to consider those other Halloween staples, Ghostbusters and Thriller — though I did use The Monster Mash in the Halloween in black white mix from last year.

As always, the mix is timed to fit on a standard CD-R and includes home-ghostbusted covers. PW in comments.

    thanks so much – really enjoyed it.

    a few suggestions if you do another: Skinned by Blind Melon, Hell is For Children by Pat Benatar, and Season of the Witch by Donovan (and sorry if you had them already and I missed them)

    A good entry for the fourth one would perhaps be Siouxsie and the Banshees’ version of The Doors’ “You’re Lost Little Girl”. Very spooky atmosphere.
