My Halloween celebration has a soundtrack. 


And, along with all the standards, I collect “non-traditional” horror songs; ones that induce dread, or shock, maybe even fear.


In this episode I share some of the songs that are mainstays in my October playlist.  Maybe some of these songs will inspire you, and become part of your own celebration of Halloween.

Happy Listening.

  1. I’m impressed — I expected to already know every song you recommended. Man, was I wrong! I was only familiar with “Twist of Cain” (a personal fave), the Alice In Chains tracks (my favorite band from that era). and “Disturbing the Priest” (GREAT call — quite possibly the scariest song ever recorded). I’ll definitely be going back to that Golden Palaminos song. So haunting, so sad . . . .
