Happy Halloween, you little ghoulies.
I hope you had a good weekend dressed up in your costumes and eating candy and doing nothing else that would make anyone blush or pretend to not hear so we don’t run screaming to the cops.
I know I’ve given you some playlists designed to get you in a creepy mood, but I decided that wasn’t enough. So, here are my favorite creepy song quotes. Feel free to chime in if you agree or disagree. But I’m right. Always.
Fought and fell for our great king we burned alive and boiled / The dragon, red and wrathful calls, we rise and march once more / Cursed in death, we starve for flesh / Our skin is cooked and curled / We’ll eat our kin and smash them in / In Hell, we’ll grind their bones. – Save Our City by Ludo
I’m a killer / Cold and wrathful / Silent sleeper / I’ve been inside your bedroom / I’ve murdered half the town / Left you love notes on their headstones / I’ll fill the grave yard / Until I have you. – Horror of Our Love by Ludo
I’ve got a / Taste for blood / Leave the weak / Leave the young / I’ve got a / Taste for blood / I’m walking out / Without you / You will kill / Or be killed / It’s about / Progress / I’ve got a / Taste for blood. – Plans by Bloc Party
Ply her heart / With gold and silver / Take your sweetheart down to the river / Dash her on the paving stones / It may break your heart / To break her bones but / Someone’s got to do the culling / Of the fold. – Culling of the Fold by the Decemberists
Don’t hold out for rescue / None can hear your call / ‘Til I have wrest and wrecked you / Behind these fortress walls. – Margaret in Captivity by the Decemberists
And that’s how I came / Your humble narrator / To be living so easy and free / Expect that you think that I should be haunted / But it never really bothers me / All right. – The Rake’s Song by the Decemberists
Right from the start i was stabbed in the heart / Didn’t know i wasn’t breathing / Didn’t know i had been bleeding / Open my door thought I was alone / but someone was hiding /In the dark room in my home. – Creeper by Islands
In the back of my mind / I want to do bad things / I want to be unkind / When I’m in my room / I love the shadows / Of my bad bones / I have thoughts I won’t share / Because I don’t think I could bear to face you / With the lights on / I feel evil creeping in. –I Feel Evil Creeping In by Islands
Of course, there are also some good musicals you should think about. Nightmare Before Christmas, Repo! The Genetic Opera and Evil Dead the Musical, to name a few.
Oh, and remember! The contest ends tomorrow. I’ve had some pretty sweet entries, and I want to make sure everyone has the opportunity to enter! Send me your best song titles, people. That’s the only way to win.
New Dance Card goes up tomorrow…are you ready for November? I’m getting pumped.
And with that, good night and good luck. Hope you survive the evening.
