Friday Playlist: Halloween


Welcome to JamBase's super-sized Halloween Playlist. We visit the old classics ("Monster Mash" rendered by the Misfits), new classics (Jonathan Coulton's "Re: Your Brains," Nellie McKay's "Zombie"), kid-like gems (Jonathan Richman's "Vampire Girl"), swell covers (Rasputina doing CCR's "Bad Moon Rising," Magnolia Electric Co. doing Zevon's "Werewolves of London"), and other strange and menacing tributaries. Few holidays have a more joyously mischievous nature than Halloween, yet the whole shebang flirts with death and genuine fright. It's a strange one and we love it. Here's some tunes to get you in the proper mood for tomorrow night as you put on your fangs and prepare to bug strangers for candy...

Playlist assembled by JamBase Associate Editor Dennis Cook, who is looking forward to things gettin' freaky under the full moon this weekend…

And check out last week's Playlist full of Bowie covers by The Gourds, Superchunk, The Flaming Lips and more!
