OK... It's the week of Halloween and therefore, we have been given the assignment of listing some "SCARY" tunes. A 'Fright Fest' of music, if you will.
Of course, Jen, from My Skewed View... is our "Hostess with the Mostess" and bangs out all these assignments. This one is Mix Tape #31... Our Co-Host is Kristi, from Finding Ninee... They have ALL the other participants listed so you can check out a variety of 'Frightful Tunes' this week. Click on those Links and go get SPOOKED!!! As for here, well, this is my version of SCARY... Let's get this party started!!!
#1: It's only fitting that I start this 'party' off with some Alice Cooper. How about some Welcome To My Nightmare. The title says it all. Enjoy... (source)
#2: Next up: ELO with a bit of haunting tune. Catch the 'frightening' 1:30 intro and then the remaining Instrumental has the effect of, say, in a movie, one on a manic run to find a 'normal and safe' place. This clip actually refers to UFO's. Fire On High. Enjoy... (source)
#3: Let's lighten it up just a bit. The Atlanta Rhythm Section (ARS) and their version of a Spooky kind of lady. Some nice Instrumentals from this casual, 'spooky' tune. Enjoy... (source)
#4: For me, the Ending Lyrics of this tune are one of, if not the, most Haunting that there is in music: "Relax, said the night man. We are programmed to receive. You can check out anytime you like, but you can never leave." The Eagles with Hotel California. Enjoy... (source)
#5: And finally, hoping to put a smile on your mug, I leave you with an oldie from another time. Bobby "Boris" Pickett with The Monster Mash. I hope you enjoy the 'humor' from this 'scary' tune... (source)
And there you have it. Another one in the books. Hope you enjoyed. Always fun putting these together. Have a "SPOOKY, SCARY" good Halloween. Hope to see you on Happy Friday (if you survive the night before). Til then...
Be safe, be smart, and show your Smile... It's Twisted Mix Tape Tuesday
