Happy Halloween, everyone!
Today is a “special” sort of Halloween. The kind where you still have school in the morning, a showing at your house in the afternoon, and no time to clean, much less get ready for trick or treating.
I realized this morning that I packed our candles. More specifically, I packed the tea-light candles I typically use for jack-o-lanterns. Those are packed along with the bucket I use for the trick-or-treat candy, our Halloween decorations, and the trick-or-treat pumpkin that my youngest normally uses for collecting her treats. They are in a storage unit approximately 3 hours from my house right now. God, I love moving…and even more so now that we’ve been “moving” for about six months.
Since I was thinking about Halloween, and showing my house later on…and since I also have a real sense of humor, I was considering putting together a special play list to have going softly in the background as people come to see the house today.
Yeah, I’m THAT type of seller. Hard to imagine my home still being on the market, huh?
Anyway, I want the playlist to be Duran-centric, for the most part. It can’t be too long because my house doesn’t take that long to see, but I’ll also use it tonight for the darling little trick-or-treaters as I’m sipping on some sort of apple-cinnamon type of drink. Hey, we ALL should get treats on Halloween, shouldn’t we?!?
Here’s what I’ve got so far:
Night Boat (Yeah, I took DDHQ’s idea. Sue me.)
Out of My Mind
The Flame (Yes, it’s Arcadia. And??)
Tricked Out (I picked this because for some strange reason it reminds me of something Danny Elfman might compose, and he reminds me of Halloween. Yeah, I’m stretching. Again, sue me.)
Secret Oktober (come on now…of course this has to be on it!)
Chains (It has this haunting sort of feel to it that goes well for the occasion)
Red Carpet Massacre (the name alone works for me!)
Only in Dreams (can you pick a song just because it has the word “vampire” in it? I say you can.)
Late Bar (legs and arms crawling through. Good enough for me!)
Election Day (Yeah, has nothing to do with Halloween but everything to do with what will come next. GO VOTE!)
The Universe Alone
There are plenty more that I could add..but what would you add to your own Halloween playlist? Give it a try and let me know!
Off to go get myself some candles….
