I know that it is September, and I know that I surmise that they might actually make Halloween mixes a contest, but I couldn't help myself today, so I made this Halloween mix.

While making this mix, I thought about what I would play at a Halloween party a lot. If I were popular enough to do that sort of thing, I would totally throw a Halloween party, but sadly I am... well, just not. And my house is always a mess, so that idea is out entirely. At any rate, I'll probably play it a lot in my new stereo in my newly restored very old car, which hopefully I'll have by the time Halloween rolls around.

ANYWAYS, the point is, this is the kind of mix I would play if I were DJing a Halloween party, as well as some of the more novelty hits such as "The Monster Mash", etc., but as far as it goes right now, I have an 80 minute time frame and I wanted the track number to be something Halloweenish. So there you go.

Furthermore (I know, long description), to clarify, not all the songs on this mix are of the genre "goth", if such a genre does in fact exist, although it does have more Bauhaus than I would have liked had I been able to help it. However, it must be taken into account that Michael Jackson's "Thriller" is track 5 and the catalyst for my assembling this mix. Therefore it can be categorized as a diversified Halloween-type mix of fun.

On with the mix, please.

1 Bauhaus : Bela Lugosi's Dead
A good, scary opener, this one may be rather long but.. I had to have some Bauhaus on this, you know?

Track 18 from Box Set (disc 1: Collection I & II)
Length: 00:01:52
Year: 1996
Track Description:
What with their skull logo and dark motifs, there is no better suited band to deliver an obviously-titled Halloween anthem than the Misfits. Not varying too much from Bauhaus's dark, serious, gothic tones, they are slightly more punk and the song is far, far more fast paced.

Track 7 from Queen II

Year: 1974
Track Description:
Inspired by a tortured artist's amazingly detailed masterpiece featuring hundreds of small fairy figures, which he painted during his stay in a mental asylum (I haven't checked my sources, so don't quote me), this song is high-energy, high-fantasy, and the last buffer between the first two tracks and the next. *cackles*

I kept looking for songs that weren't this one to put on the mix. I don't know why, I just wanted a different one. But it wouldn't get out of my head, so I had to put it on. I don't know how well it follows the Velvet Underground, and I opened with another Bauhaus song, but there it is. It has to be on the mix and it has to be right here.

Track Description:
A sailor-esque song about revenge, including a detailed account of how said graphically deadly revenge is to be carried out. The harmony of childlike voices depicting the narrator's dying mother describing breaking someone's fingers to splinters and said revengee waking up crying at the ceiling of his grave always creeps me out.

Long before being knocked up with Eddie Murphy's illegitimate child, Scary Spice was on top of the world. Now, she's nothing but washed up. It's kind of sad, really. Just by scoring third place in this contest, you've got infinitely more street cred than Scary. Congrats!
