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.
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 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…
