Eights days until all hallow's eve. Halloween is a pretty funny holiday. The idea of dressing up and become another persona is an interesting idea. It stirs up a million questions. Do people pick costumes subconsciously because of some desire to take on another role? (I honestly have NO desire to be a sumo wrestler!) Is it for just comedy's sake? Are they dressing up as Raggedy Andy because the significant other is insisting it will look "cute"? How about those "Hooters" guys? (You know the 4 guys that wear skin tight orange shorts with "padded" tank tops.) What are they saying? Probably something alone the lines of, "TEQUILA SHOTS!"

But, I miss trick or treating the most. Candy. For free? Yes, please. But that has been replaced with something just as good. House parties. After the December holidays, I think Halloween probably has the most house parties. And usually the parties are filled with sexy nurses, sexy angels, sexy pirates, sexy maids, sexy fairies, sexy witches, and the four Hooters guys taking shots.

So in honor of this upcoming holiday weekend (holidays are by default moved up to the earliest weekend when there are no days off in involved). I decided to dig out some Halloween tracks. We got the obvious ones there and a couple new ones. The instrumental version of Thriller is pretty amazing. You can appreciate the ridiculous bass line and the background vocals are left behind to fill it out a bit. And then Vincent Price sticks around to deliver his famous monologue and laugh.

I found the Fine Tuning remix of Bauhaus at Just Press Play . Perfect track for late night listening. And Arcade Fire rounds out the mix and the night of debauchery, mischief and frights.
