A Hi-Fi Hallowe'en.

HALLOWE'EN MIXZIP


Click here to download my spooktacular Hallowe'en mix. Give it a spin to fend off evil spirits from your party, or you could of course come along and jive to them at the Hi-Fi Popcorn Hallowe'en Ball.

Tracklisting:
1. North American Hallowe'en Prevention, Inc. - Do They Know It's Hallowe'en?
2. Vic Mizzy - The Addams Family
3. Final Fantasy - The CN Tower Belongs to the Dead
4. Neutral Milk Hotel - Ghost
5. Daniel Johnston - Casper the Friendly Ghost
6. Treehouses - The Trick or Treat Serial Killer
7. Bobby Boris Pickett - Monster Mash
8. France Gall - Frankenstein
9. Unicorns - Ghost Mountain
10. The Shaggs - It's Halloween
11. Pixies - The Thing
12. Volunteer Pioneer - Funeral Scene
13. X-Press 2 - Witchi Tai To (featuring Tim Delaughter)
14. The Paper Chase - We Know Where You Sleep
15. The Immediate - A Ghost in This House
16. Animal Collective - April and the Phantom
17. The Zombies - Butcher's Tale (Western Front 1914)
18. Evangelicals - The Halloween Song
19. The Marketts - Out of Limits
20. The Polyphonic Spree - Town Meeting Song

Some obvious exclusions from the mix include Ghostbusters, Thriller, Pet Semetary, Ghost Town, I Put a Spell on You, Scary Monsters and Devil's Haircut, as well as more recent vaguely-linkable-to-the-season treats from the likes of Jay Reatard, No Age, Patrick Wolf, The Libertines, Islands, Jape, The Mae Shi, TV on the Radio, thinguma*jigSaw, Nobunny and Wolf Parade.

Actually, I was just the other day pondering as to why the only bona fide Hallowe'en HIT is the bonkers Monster Mash. Almost five decades after its release, no other popular song has appeared which really comes close to being as widely-associated with the holiday. The immense Do They Know It's Hallowe'en? was an admirable effort, but that was only available on a painfully-limited seven inch vinyl! What the hell's that about? There's a niche market if ever I've known one! Louis Walsh, you reading this shit? Get off my blog!
