I figured since it was Halloween it was a great time to get a music discussion going around the season. Are there any songs you particularily enjoy during this time of the year? Maybe from a movie soundtrack.
I’m a pretty big Horror buff so I’ve got quite a few movies I like to watch around this time of the year, most of which have some pretty great soundtracks to accompany them!
From the movie of the same name, this song is super atmospheric, especially when combined with the vivid technicolor in the movie.
I first watched The Exorcist when I was 12 and it scared the ever-living crap out of me. The theme is one that sticks with you and sound fantastic with the right headphones.
There aren’t many songs that set-up the mood of a movie as well as this one. I feel like this song along is like 50% responsible for The Lost Boys being a cult classic.
A bit of a slower paced song but very atmospheric. Really enjoy this one.
If you are fan of Lovecraftian movies, In the Mouth of Madness is pretty great for that. While this song doesn’t quite evoke the same moods as the others I quite like it.
Carpenter Brut is a DJ I listen to quite a bit around this time of the year. Definitely not for everyone. Most of his music falls under Giallo Disco (Giallo being a genre of Italian horror). It’s a bit like darker synthwave if you are into that.
My favourite Iron Maiden song and my favourite performance of it. I have seen the video hundreds of times and if there was one concert I wish I went to, it would have been Rock in Rio 2001. The way Bruce controls the crowd for the first 2 minutes and than explodes out of the gate is fantastic.
Do you find you listen to spooky tunes around this time of the year? Or does it stay the same throughout the year?
