G’Night Sleep Fright

 

I think it’s a rule- Halloween isn’t officially done until the ghouls come out and sing a song or two.

So here we go-

Now, I’m going to go and bring in my Jack-O-Lantern and my decorations.

Most of them anyway. There’s no sense in going crazy here.

After all, didn’t Charles Dickens write that we should keep Halloween in our hearts all

year long? Or was it Poe? Or did I hit the the Pumpkin Spice Egg Nog with just a taste of

brandy to hard and I have it completely wrong?

Well. No matter, it’s good advice.

I hope you had a Merry Halloween.

Halloween Music?

I guess I can only listen to the theme from the Exorcist or Psycho so many times before I start to wonder if it’s time to expand my Halloween music play list. I mean, it’s gotten a little stale and not in the stale ” something has been locked up in that trunk in the basement and it’s starting to smell ” fun stale.

I think these three songs would make a great addition to that list, what do you think?
