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.
