What we’re listening to this week #666 – Halloween Special

When we were putting together this week’s WWLTTW playlist we realised that we really, really like Halloween music. Really. Here’s our resident playlist curator, Andy, with this week’s musical tale…

WWLTTW #666

“…the traditional focus of All Hallows’ Eve revolves around the theme of using “humor and ridicule to confront the power of death.”

We’ll try to skip the obvious and go for a B-Movie soundtrack. Are you ready for the bloodbath?

Thirteen times three.

“I’m just like any modern woman trying to have it all.
Loving husband, a family.
It’s just, I wish I had more time to seek out the dark forces and join their hellish crusade.”
Morticia Addams

Darkness falls across the land
The midnite hour is close at hand
Creatures crawl in search of blood
To terrorize y’awl’s neighbourhood
And whosoever shall be found
Without the soul for getting down
Must stand and face the hounds of hell
And rot inside a corpse’s shell
The foulest stench is in the air
The funk of forty thousand years
And grizzly ghouls from every tomb
Are closing in to seal your doom
And though you fight to stay alive
Your body starts to shiver
For no mere mortal can resist
The evil of the thriller
Can you dig it?!

Lyrics: Michael Jackson – Thriller

Happy Halloween!
