, Halloween mixtapes?

, Halloween mixtapes?

Forget trying to shoehorn songs with vaguely relevant titles to the season into a classifiable Halloween playlist for cool peer points. Matt Ear Farm takes it back to the old school with this mix of songs from horror soundtracks. What could be more creepy, scary or eerie than songs which soundtracked Halloween, Friday the 13th, Psycho, The Omen, Candyman, Poltergeist and more? Respect to Matt.

I heartily recommend Darragh’s Frightening the living shite outta meself post also. And Bobby’s one on his rejuvenated blog too. He has a gig on tonight! Happy All Hallows Eve folks.
