Halloween is kinda my favorite holiday. Don’t get me wrong, I love Christmas. But in a way Halloween lasts 365 days a year at my house between my love of horror, vampires, sci-fi, and fashion and music that lends itself to the darker side. When I worked at a coffee shop I played the Halloween Muzak channel all month long, which was mysteriously on another channel every time I started my shift.
So before I, my Yeti and my Monster put on our Halloween costumes and hit the trick or treat trail, I thought I’d post a Halloween-ready soundtrack of some of my favorite creepy not quite holiday songs.
