Happy Halloween! Legendary late 60s teen garage rockers The Graveyard Five’s solitary single “The Graveyard Theme”/”The Marble Orchard” has a truly haunted atmosphere like nothing else from that or any other era.
After over a year in exclusive rotation among elite house DJs, Jack Son’s “Thrill Her” eventually got an official release so the rest of us could bang it in our sets. This nasty, percussive workout of the Michael Jackson classic whips dancefloors into ghoulish madness.
The guitar, horns and vocals on The Specials “Ghost Town” are distinctly ska but the song gets a spooky vibe with the background vocals, and those ghostly keys. Happy Halloween!
In a world of unique characters in the music business, Screamin’ Jay Hawkins stood out with his leopard skin outfits, capes, rubber snakes and a smoking skull on a stick named Henry.
It’s that time of year! And The Misfits “Halloween” is the definitive anthem.
Happy Halloween! Jason Willis has lovingly crafted, frame-by-frame, a stop-action graveyard rave-up starring UK garage-soul act The Heavy, a voodoo doll-wielding femme fatale, the undead, vintage-inspired title cards and a whole lot of creepy fun. Awesome!
I usually don’t get too excited about all of the Halloween-inspired edits you see around, but “Doctor Frankenstein” really does it for me. Makes me wanna do the Frankenstein on the dance floor.
ith Halloween coming up next week I thought I would pay homage to one of my (and my 4 year old’s) favorite movies. The Nightmare Before Christmas is a wonderful movie with an INCREDIBLE soundtrack by Danny Elfman. There are many great songs in this movie but I thought “This is Halloween” fit best.
A late entry into the Halloween-themed downloads, Glass Candy have created an homage to John Carpenter’s legendary all-synthesizer scores for his own “Halloween” films. A sing-song “trick or treat” melody glides atop slick synths creeping along at a stalker pace. Nicely done!
