If you missed all our previous Halloween posts, or if you just need a 7 hour journey through Halloweeny music….here’s all of it in one handy place.
MUSIC TO MAKE YOUR SKIN CRAWL
YOUR FINGERNAILS SCREE ACROSS A CHALKBOARD
MUSIC FOR THE UNDEAD
Oh we are so close to Halloween now my friends…
This is our second spookiest playlist because the last one (drops midnight of Halloween-eve) is basically nails on a chalkboard, so this is the last stop for discernable melody and joy. Like, evil mad scientist joy though.
We believe in treats not tricks so we’re rollin out playlists aaaaalll weekend. No more messing around, these are not cute THESE ARE SCARY!!! Fine…maybe a little cute but MOSTLY SCARY!!!
Halloweenfest continues with one of my very favorite seasonal treats today! David Del Tredici’s Dracula, a twenty-minute “monodrama”, is a campy-yet-genuinely-disturbing take on the classic Dracula tale is a total gem in the repertoire.
Happy Friday the 13th and almost halfway to Halloween! Friday the 13th is all about the milder superstitions like black cats and ladders and things that are unsettling but not like…ax-murdering ghost unsettling and that’s what this playlist is. Like any good fall-themed cocktail it starts off sweet, gets a little spicy and by the time you’re done with it you might feel a lil messed up.
HAPPY FALL Y’ALL
Classical music has so much wonderful and terrifying Halloweeny music that I ended up making three different playlists to best fit everyone’s varying Halloween spook levels. We’ll release one post a week (with at least one scary walkthrough) in increasing scare levels till the big day. This week we’re starting off nice with Pumpkin Spice. This is a playlist for anyone out there who likes their pumpkins covered in glitter, their ghosts friendly and their latte…well you know.
Well, it’s September. A chill is in the air, kids are going back to school, and spooky stories are starting to come up in conversation. In that spirit, we’re jumping into one of my all-time favorite film scores because nothing says “fall” quite like Vertigo…
Last winter I heard a piece of music I had never heard before and, like so many before me, I became obsessed. I couldn’t even think about this piece without compulsively turning it on and listening to it several times and so eventually I decided it was time to unleash this glorious baroque beast onto all of you as well.
The seventh season of Game of Thrones comes out this Sunday which is great because honestly, it’s hot out and we could all use some winter. But it’s still days away and our watch is not yet ended, so I came up with this playlist of classical music that felt like it came out of the same world as Ramin Djawadi’s dark and unearthly Game of Thrones score.
