Help me build a Halloween/Samhain playlist ‘18

chat

#1

I love October. This has a lot to do with my love of Halloween. Most years I attend a large gathering of friends and this thing goes to the wee hours of the morning. For several years now I have meticulously selected music for a large chunk of this gathering. This is a job as the night is long, the girls are scantily clad and the adult treats are multitudinous.

I have a suspicion y’all can help me top all previous playlists this year. Will you help me? All genres are welcome, nothing is off limits—I will get it started with a song on my mind since watching Sharp Objects on HBO.

The old boards may be a creepy relic from the past, but sometimes they do serve a purpose…


#3

another bit of Villagers for ya


#4

This is one a mate of mine made for a blog he now runs. Gets pretty dark tbh Excuse the title…


#5

On the rock end, maybe something off of The Wytches’ first album?


#6

#7

Or “Ride or Die” by The Icarus Line


#8

probably quite a few Oh Sees songs with spooky sounds and gruesome lyrics


#9

Probably something off of Embryonic by The Flaming Lips could work.

I did use something off of Embryonic in one of the previous years. Part of the trouble is I won’t repeat anything I’ve put on there from previous years…and the years are adding up :):older_adult:

Most of the suggestions so far I have not dabbled in. I have a few Oh Sees albums that guitar sound is pretty appropro

Danke! Having joined just a few days ago I’m unfamiliar with the archives or the old board, so far if it hasn’t shown up in the “search” on here I have assumed it does not exist


#16

yeah the old boards are a on separate site and not very searchable without using google so it’s tricky to find stuff from there


#17

this whole album is very Halloweeny to me but not exactly nice party music


#18

I can’t help myself, but it fits!

I have used a few SP songs over the years. The Beginning is The End is The Beginning, We Only Come Out At Night are two I remember, there may have been others.
