    30 Days Till Halloween

    Here it is! October! It’s decorative gourd season, m*****f*****s! You ready to reap this freaky-assed harvest?

    Vampire Themes (1997)
    Some of the tracks here are fairly timeless … the cover of “Sympathy For the Devil”, “Bela Lugosi’s Dead” … others sound a little dated. It’s kinda angsty, kinda “Twilight”y. Pretty good though.

    Songs in the Key of X - Music from and Inspired by 'the X-Files' (1996)
    My all-time favorite show. It’s a bit of an uneven selection of songs … some fit better with the theme than others. “Red Right Hand”, “Unmarked Helicopters”, “Deep”, “Frenzy” all fit together pretty well … “On the Outside” and “If You Never Say Goodbye” seem out of place. On the whole, a fun listen.

    Just Can't Get Enough - New Wave Halloween (1998)
    A pretty decent collection. I like every song not called Halloween, and I’m not a big fan of all the songs called Halloween (there are six of them). Still, a “modern” classic.

    Mannheim Steamroller Halloween (2003)
    Chip Davis really changed the Christmas landscape by taking familiar Christmas songs and re-inventing them with a light, pop-orchestra touch. His Halloween ...

    My “Modern Music” folder is a bit of a misnomer … I put anything after 1970 or so in there, and to be fair, many of these are far from modern. Oh well.

    Alan Parsons Project - Tales Of Mystery And Imagination (2007)
    Originally released in 1975, this 2007 “Deluxe Edition” has a few more tracks. Always had a soft spot for this CD, “The Raven” and “The Fall of the House of Usher” suite are my favorites. Arthur Brown contributes ...

    First, wrapping up …

    The Definitive Horror Music Collection (2009)
    The rest of the CDs are very good … there are a few things that feel out of place. In particular, including Thorogood’s “Bad to the Bone” just because it was in “Christine” – I don’t know. Otherwise, excellent collection. You know, I knew Daryl Hannah’s character in “Kill Bill” was whistling a horror theme, but I didn’t know it was “Twisted Nerve”. It’s ...
