Raised Eyebrows: Halloween Blues (Randy)

October 29, 2015

Music

In lieu of Halloween, I thought I’d put something together to jam for your Halloween festivities. I’m not a big Halloween fan, but I do really enjoy the idea of human beings entertaining the idea of wolfmen and witches. I also dig a good murder ballad and/or psychotic country song. What that says about me … I’m not sure, but maybe it means I dig on Halloween more than I think. This playlist is changing lives already.

Round Robin – I’m The Wolfman (Thanks to Mike Buck who jammed this on Blue Monday on 10/26/15, Sun Radio 100.1)

The Sonics – The Witch (Was reminded of this on Elk Mating Ritual, 91.7 KOOP.)

Howlin Wolf – Evil (The man’s name alone is enough for anything relating to Halloween.)

Terry Allen – The Wolfman of Del Rio (Fort Worth’s greatest treasure.)

Michael Hurley – Werewolf (Snock truly understands the wolfman.)

The Kossoy Sisters – Poor Ellen Smith (A rad murder ballad complete with blood stained lyrics.)

Roky Erickson – I Walked with a Zombie (Halloween is Roky time.)

The Rolling Stones – Too Much Blood (A disco song about blood.)

Porter Wagoner – The Rubber Room (A country song about a man inside an asylum – dig the slapback!)

Eddie Noack – Psycho (Leon Payne’s outrageous classic.)

Neil Young – Vampire Blues (A spooky Shakey number.)

Warren Zevon – Werewolves of London – Live (Warren talks about the werewolf looking to murder James Taylor – nuff said.)
