    Okay, I found last year's music but I don't know how I did it. Sigh. Most downloads are listing as forbidden, or suggest I go to Amazon. 23, 17, 16, 15 ... I found that if I go back and try again, sometimes I can get the dead links to work. Ha! There's an old Marianne Faithful song about which I had completely forgotten. I wouldn't have considered many of these songs Halloween songs, but in the context of the compilations, I can see it.

    Last month, I did download 10 albums. I tried today and don't understand the page. Where is the music? I don't know what tublr, rss, or any of that other stuff means (I just got off dial-up in late 2010, and still don't have a cell phone or cable/satellite tv). So, where did the music go?

    Found a great resource or two: http://www.scaryforkids.com/childrens-rhymes/ (scary rhymes from movies) No recordings, but you can google the, I'd bet. Read the comments. It does not have the Tommyknockers rhyme. Here's a different version: Not last night, but the night before. 24 robbers came knockin' on my door, as I ran out - they ran in, hit 'em in the head with a rollin' pin (after this you just count, 1, 2,3,4,5 all the way to 24) . The following are not scary, but you can rewrite the...

    It's in the personal definition. Goofy alien is cute, not spooky. Cuddly Cthulhu is not horror related. But there are plenty of folks who make a connection. To me, slasher films are not horror by any means. Kill-the-cast is not a plot. It isn't scary, there is no suspense, and since you know the entire film 5 minutes after it starts, it isn't even interesting. The original Halloween is an exception, but it's practically the only one that is both slasher and horror. It's the same with SF. I...

    Friend of my sister-in-law posted the following to Facebook. It sort of ties in, and it's funny. https://www.facebook.com/BootsyCollins/photos/a.453228512348.239747.9490092348/10152463207972349/?type=1

    Look up Gregorian Chant, or Dies Irae (part of the old Latin Mass and genuinely scary.Means Day of Wrath). Dies Irae comes in chanted and musical versions for your listening pleasure. Church Slavonic (Slavic) and Byzantine or Greek chanting is a little less common than Latin, and will have your Latin-understanding friends a little nuts as they try to figure it out. The Heart Sutra is not scary, but it is in Tibetan, and the way Tibetan monks chant, it can sound creepy. Mixed in with other...

    There was a doom metal band called Witchcraft that did some songs you might like. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KE68udXLHgI (here are the lyrics: http://www.darklyrics.com/lyrics/witchcraft6181/witchcraft.html) Actually, go to the Darklyrics and do a search for witch or witchcraft. I think you will be happy. Not my taste (I like elevator music), but definitely widened my musical horizons.

    If I recall, a woman in -Massachusetts, was it? - was arrested last year on being a common shrew. I'm from there, and if you got busted for that, you really have to be nasty. Here are some ideas http://www.glassgiant.com/wanted/crimes.php More ideas: REAL Michigan laws that might put a person on a "WANTED" poster: A woman isnít allowed to cut her own hair without her husbandís permission. All bathing suits must have been inspected by the head of police.

    Steeleye Span, an electric folk band had a few: Allison Gross, The Good Witch, The Twelve Witches, The Two Magicians, and I think one or two others. I guess they kind of sound like Voltaire, if you need a fairly modern comparison.I'd listen to Twelve first, since it is more rock-like and has a very strong rhythm and guitar, and it might appeal more to you.
