Let’s get ready for the creepy, crawly season… a great recommendation from @redrunningshoe over at blistersandblacktoenails.blogspot.com, let’s do songs that make you think of Halloween. Could be any song that is either creepy, haunting sounding, or perhaps the video is scary or maybe even the singer is creepy.
Something Old: Songs that are at least 5 years old. (I know that isn’t too long to be considered old, but music turnover happens quickly.)
Something Current: Songs that have been released within the past year.
Something to Consider: This is the wild card category. Feel free to list any song: old, current, guilty pleasure, underground, whatever.
Title: Falling Away From Me
Side Note: Remember Korn? They were hot for a minute. Their videos were always dark, interesting and intense. I think this was towards the end of MTVs TRL reign… Some of these guys could be pretty scary if you encountered them in a dark alley.
Quotable: “Hear what others say. I’m here standing hollow. Falling away from me. Falling away from me ”
Side Note: Have you seen what Rihanna wears? Those are costumes, right? Because if that is “fashion,” I’m out of touch — which is highly likely. This is one of those songs that the beat carries you. I like running to slower songs (Alicia Keys, Adele) and this fits right in. The heavy and consistent drum beat keeps the pace going.
Quotable: “Shine bright like a diamond. ”
Artist: Michael Jackson and Janet Jackson
Side Note: I know you wanted to see Thriller in here. It’s a MUST for this category and that is exactly why it’s not included. But SCREAMing fits perfectly with the theme. Love this video and my favorite moment is at 3:05… it slows down… Janet whispers… then the guitar kicks in and the two of them break it down! Second favorite part? When the hold each other at the end.
Quotable: “You tell me I’m wrong. Then you better prove you’re right.”
