A ghostly playlist for Halloween! (Descriptions by the tracklistings)
01 – The Ghosts of Saturday Night – Tom Waits
02 – Is there a ghost – Band of Horses
Discovered during a Fringe episode; this is one of my favourite groups in recent years!
03 – Misguided Ghosts – Paramore
The best song on the album – I think this is just haunting!
04 – The Ghost of Tom Joad – Junip
Grapes of wrath. Just had to get a literary reference in here somewhere eh?
05 – Ghost of the Navigator – Iron Maiden
Horrible song really – brings to mind some of the spookiest images. So obviously it’s a MUST LISTEN.
06 – Ghostrider in the Sky – Peggy Lee
This is less of a song and more of a tale woven through song. Also – cowboy ghosts. Hooked yet?
07 – Ghost Rider – Suicide
According to wikipedia – these eerie, sturdy, proto-punk anthems rank among the most visionary, melodic experiments the rock realm has yet produced. So there you go.
08 – Ghost – Neutral Milk House
I *think* this might become one of my funeral songs…
09 – Little Ghost – The White Stripes
It’s a strange sort of love story featuring a ghost. Weird. Wonderful.
10 – Ghostbusters – Ray Parker Jr
Ok – I didn’t want to leave all creeped out and unaware that there are people who can help.
“If there’s something strange, in your neighborhood, who ya gonna call? GHOSTBUSTERS!”
Oh come on, everyone knows I love cheese.
