Feeling that nostalgia vibe, here’s your ghoulish grooves for the last preparatory weekend before the main event.

Dead Man’s Party – Oingo Boingo - Anthem for all the decently dressed deceased, and likewise stylish spectres.

Psycho Killer – Talking Heads - New wave weirdsville art school cool. Qu’ est-ce que c’est? 

Weird Science – Oingo Boingo - Elfman get’s two spins on any respectable shindig of the spooktacular kind. Bonus for being the titles to La Petite Mort’s favorite childhood movie.

Somebody’s Watching Me – Rockwell – Making showers funky and freaky since 1984

A Nightmare on My Street – DJ Jazzy Jeff and the Fresh Prince - The illadelph gets a slice (harhar) of Elm Street. Everybody wins.

Superstition – Stevie Wonder – This is WAY outside the 80s, but it is basically the funkiest song ever. Definitely the best song in category “clavinet.”

Thriller – Michael Jackson - If you leave this off your Halloween playlist the terrorists win, or something.

Ghostbusters – Ray Parker Jr - See above comment.

Freaks Come out at Night – Whodini - La Petite Mort nonsensically remains convinced this was written about her. DO NOT ARGUE

The Boogie Monster – Gnarles Barkley - Rules are made for breaking, and monsters are made for boogeying.

Killing Moon – Echo and the Bunnymen - Classic creepy story set to  80s soundscape. Bonus fact: Incroyable much prefers the La Petite Mort version to the Bunnymen.

Get weird everybody, and we’ll have more for you next week.
