Music Monday #18 ~ This is Halloween...

Halloween may be now be gone, but my decorations aren't yet, so I figured I would stretch out the celebration just one more day in order to procrastinate having to yank webs out of my yard and remove paper skeletons from my walls.

This has always been a fun occasion for my husband and I, especially now with the kids.
We even give presents for the holiday.
(I got the soundtrack to "The Rocky Horror GLEE show"...yay!!)

I'll be posting pics later in the week of our festivities, but for now I wanted to share with you three of my favorite songs to hear/play at Halloween.

Though "Monster Mash" should be in this list, I've heard it just one too many times over the past week and would like to take a break from it for now. =)

So here short-version Halloween play list:

"I Put a Spell on You" by Screamin' Jay Hawkins
(yeah, CCR also did this song...but I'm a fan of this version in particular. And from what I've read, it was QUITE "out there" when it came out in the 1957.)

"Every Day is Halloween" by Ministry
Though I grew up with the industrial/metal Ministry of the 90's, their 80's synth-pop beginnings aren't half bad!
I love to hear this song...any time of the year.

"Thriller" by Michael Jackson
Okay, so who HASN'T heard this song?
But hey, it never gets old in my opinion.
I just wish I had taken the time to learn the entire dance like some.
(oh, and this video used to really scare me as a kid!) =)

Well I hope you (if you celebrated) had a fantastic Halloween.
I'm exhausted today actually.
But we did have a good time.
Time to start planning next year's costumes!
(yeah right! didn't you read above where I said that I was a procrastinator?) =D
