All Hallow's Mix - Halloween Music

It struck me a while back that there is an inordinate amount of Halloween flavor in Alternative music.  Indie artist the world around make mention of "ghosts", "monsters", "vampires", "evil" and general creepiness.  Perhaps it is the pensive, introspective, and distrusting nature of the artistic mind that drives success in today's music scene.  Or maybe the raw imagery of these spooky specters are so vivid that they lend power and strength to any composition.  Or it could be that we all still like to tell ghost stories around the campfire and yearn for that tingle running down our spine.  Whatever the reason, there are a lot of cool songs out there that have a tinge of All Hallow's Eve.

Here is a mix I made of some of my favorites. 

1) Time of the Season - The Zombies
2) Skin and Bones - JET
3) Creep - Stone Temple Pilots
4) Ghosts - The Head and the Heart
5) Fake Palindromes - Andrew Bird
6) Dracula - Gorillaz
7) Give Up the Ghost - Radiohead
8) Evil Bee - Menomena
9) Your Bones - Of Monsters and Men
10) In Our Blood - Horse Feathers
11) Ghosting - Freelance Whales
12) Creep - Radiohead
13) The Ghost Inside - Broken Bells
14) Vampire - Dr. Dog
15) Scatterbrain (As Dead As Leaves) - Radiohead
16) Ghostship - Menomena
17) Caring is Creepy - The Shins
18) Little Ghost - The White Stripes
