I had no idea there was a piece of music called The Great Pumpkin Waltz. I, of course, am very familiar with "It's The Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown", but never thought of the music as it's own thing...which is odd because I own the sondtrack to "A Charlie Brown Christmas"...what a dork I am!
Thanks to 18thcenturyghost for enlightening me and making the Halloween season even better for me!
Good stuff!! That's the first song on my playlist every Halloween when I start up the music outside. The Great Pumpkin Waltz, This is Halloween, and then the Texas Chainsaw Massacre, Midnight Syndicate etc.
There was a record my elementary school played back in the early 80's with Halloween songs on it. It was a 78 I do believe. I had went back to the school when I was in high school and borrowed it and made a tape of it. Of course I lost the tape about 7 years later and the records are all gone...
What are your favorite Halloween jams? I like the 30s Dracula soundtrack, AFI’s All Hallows’ Eve EP and all of the Aquarium Drunkard Halloween playlists.
If you like weird spooky music I also have this:
Please share your thoughts!
I have a thunder & lightning display, but I've never been happy with the thunder soundtracks I have bought or dug up over the last decade. I'm looking only for thunder. No rain, no wind, no pops, or other noise; just clean thunder.
While it is the 11th hour for 2019, I'm curious about two CDs...
