Creepercast Presents: Halloween Music for Your Ghoulish Night 3 (2012)
Video edition!… (click here for the audio edition)
As many of you already know, every year at this exact time I put together a collection of thirteen (ok so I count, note there are two number 6′s) songs for you all to enjoy as you celebrate the greatest holiday ever invented. For one hour I help you get into the Samhain spirit with hand selected tunes guaranteed to make your ghoulish night that much more fun! This year I’ve chosen to concentrate on horror related musicals and you might be surprised at the fun and horrible musicals that are available to keep you in the monster spirit. But before we get into those here’s a couple normal-ish tunes to tempt your devilish soul…
A fun dance tune by the new queen of goth. Guaranteed to get your devils dancing in the dungeon you call a home!
Napalm Records heavy metal accapella group… that’s right I said accapella, the only instrument other than voices is a bad ass drummer… is known for rousing renditions of classic heavy metal tunes, bards tales, and jamming Celtic thunder present an original. Check it out!
Now for the musicals, and what better way to begin than with a little dance number that claims to be better than the “Time Warp?”
Who wouldn’t love an “Evil Dead” musical? In the immortal words of Ash (in this song) “How in the hell can demons have their own special dance?” Well witness it yourself below!
This one comes from a classic creation brought to us by Southpark creators Trey and Matt. Although it may only be considered horror to all you PETA members there’s something about a man wearing furs and sleeping with bloody animals that makes it appealing. Look for another entry from the Southpark guys further down the list!
I probably included this in last years ghoulish music but I can’t resist another opportunity to hear Anthony Head rocking it out evil style. If you haven’t seen this movie revisit our archives for the episode we talked about it to learn why you should!
I purposefully chose the 80′s Broadway musical for this version. I do like Johnny Depps version but there’s something more pure about this one. Tell me what you think!
Remember when I said Trey and Matt would have another entry in this collection? Well here it is! This song is both hilarious and scary! Especially taking into account the election season. If we’re not careful we all could be having Spooky Mormon Hell Dreams!
Put the F’n lotion in the F’n basket! Probably the best off-Broadway musical to date is this adaptation of “Silence of the Lambs.” I had to go with this song because it lifts actual lines from the movie in the argument between Buffalo Bill and his captive in a well. It’s also hilarious, especially in lego form!
So this one is with that Scottish, you know who he is right? Anyway its jamming version of the theme song so we’ll go with it. Now put your half a mask on and practice your creepy organ playing!
Now I know everyone is going to love this, because everyone knows that David Hasselhoff is a rockstar! If you don’t love it than you don’t love Michael Knight! Actually this isn’t bad, and though I haven’t seen the whole thing myself, I’ve heard that he isn’t horrible in the musical. I’ll let you be the judge…
Yes, Dracula has his own musical. In this song he complains because all his brides are too demanding and he’s, to put it bluntly, tired of them and needs some fresh blood. There goes that “eternal love” theory “Twilight” promised!
Back to a couple regular tunes…
This is “The Walking Dead Theme” metal version. You hear me play it often in the background of my news whenever I talk about “Walking Dead” news. One of these days I hope to convince Jason to use it as the theme to “The Walking Dead Week in Review.” Maybe this will convince him!
Originally I was going to put “Halloween” by Ministry here, and why wouldn’t I, its an awesome classic tune. But then I heard this one and thought “What would a good Halloween party collection be without a redneck rap song?” I knew you would agree!
Obligatory twisted Christmas Song:
First of all, who knew the H.P. Lovecraft Society went caroling? Not this guy! But I couldn’t resist sharing one of their Cthulhu themed Christmas carols with you all to close this party out. So, please, drink responsibly, hide the bodies well, and have a very scary solstice. No really, I mean it.
Happy Halloween and Christmas!
