New Tilley Hat

A Halloween Slab

At dreamshark's request, I have put together a CD of Halloween and otherwise related songs.

I'll probably bring a spare. If anyone wants to trade mix CDs, let me know.

A Halloween Slab
Monster Mash – Bobby "Boris" Pickett And The Crypt Kickers 3:15
Werewolves Of London – Warren Zevon 3:28
False Knight On The Road – Tim Hart & Maddy Prior 2:59
Rue The Day – Folk Underground 3:12
Gay Vampire Boogie – Cynthia McQuillan 3:01

Roland The Headless Thompson Gunner – Warren Zevon 3:48
Idumea/City Of The Damned – Folk UnderGround 3:12
Song of Many Deaths – The Foremen 3:22
The Masochism Tango – Tom Lehrer 3:30
These Ghoulish Things – Kathy Mar & Zander Nyrond 3:01

Alison Gross – Steeleye Span 5:29
Put A Wooden Stake Through His Heart – Boogie Knights 3:01
Bonus track: Zombie Apocalypse (live) – Beth Kinderman and the Player Characters 5:56

It's actually a fairly wide field, and I had to leave out a lot of Steeleye Span (esp. "Demon Lover", "King Henry" and "Wife of Usher's Well".) and "Necronomicon". "False Knight On The Road" is by request; only peripherally a Halloween song, though it is about the devil. A slightly different mix would have "The Devil Went Down To Georgia" and variants. One of the versions of "With Her Head Tucked Underneath Her Arm" would have fit. Maybe "Ghost Riders In The Sky". I couldn't find any good songs about costume parties. Sharon has a 2-CD set waiting at the MN-StF party.
