This is Halloween

Happy Halloween, everyone!

I had forgotten how much I love this holiday. It is much different on college campuses than it is here in the real world. I was driving one of my younger sisters to a friends house so that they could go trick or treating together (they both dressed up as mimes, my sister the talking version, and her friend of the traditional silent persuasion), and I was suddenly filled with the excitement I felt when I was her age. I wished that I could throw together a last minute home-made costume and traipse around to strangers' houses and get loads of candy. Whose idea was that anyway? And have they one a Nobel prize yet?

Anyway, I have been filled with the Halloween spirit, and in honor of this glorious holiday, I have been compiling a Halloween mix CD. As is true of most mix CDs I compile, they will never actually be made. The truth is, I don't have most of the songs on there and I try to do my part to avoid pirating music, etc. But without further ado...

Jo!'s Halloween Mix CD

1. "This is Halloween" from Nightmare Before Christmas
2. "Spooky"
3. "Hungry Like a Wolf" by Duran Duran
4. "The Ballad of Sweeney Todd" from Sweeney Todd, The Demon Barber of Fleet Street
5. "That Old Black Magic"
6. "I put a Spell On You" from Hocus Pocus
7. "Thriller" by Michael Jackson
8. The song from Disney's Beauty and the Beast when their hunting for the Beast
9. "The Pusher" from the Easy Rider soundtrack (that song freaks me out!)
10. "Monster Mash"
11. "Addams Family Theme"
12. "Theme from Young Frankenstein"
13. "Were-wolves of London"
14. "Ghostbusters Theme"

I admit I was getting lazy toward the end and I didn't put tons of thought into the proper order to get the best flow. I do have an excuse: I am just too darn excited for NaNoWriMo to start! less than an hour now (my clock says 11:10pm), and I am rarin' and ready to go! I finally have an idea that I like and am feeling up for 50,000 words!

So, in conclusion, listen to your cableman.
