Halloween Playlist

Standard

A few of my favorite tracks for All Hallows’ Eve!

Spooky, Dusty Springfield

Dracula, Christine Pilzer

Sisters of the Moon, Fleetwood Mac

I love this version of Fleetwood Mac’s Sisters of the Moon.  I think the castanets give the track a real edge, and towards the end (approximately minute 4:00) they almost take on a ritualistic timbre as their frequency increases almost as if in the culmination of an ancient seance.  I picture rising plumes of smoke from burning incense, thrashing bodies, diaphanous flowing fabrics, and incantations invoking spirits’ name both sacred and profane.
