Musical Interlude: Halloween
I don't really WANT to like either of these deep-voiced sensitive singer-songwriter types, but it's like a genetic imparitive or sparkly jewelry. Folky guitar, emotional pain, clever lyrics: I am pitiably helpless to resist.
It's early, but since I am bundled up in a thick sweater and looking at autumn-bright foliage, I'm going to embrace the festival of harvest and plastic orange jack-o-lantern buckets. Here are a few of the songs that call me to the season.
Other tunes on my Halloween playlist (I am a lister from way back) include, of course "I Am Stretched On Your Grave (Kate Busby's version), Kate Bush's "Wuthering Heights" (the regular tempo, not the super-slow version). Also, for a bit of relief from the Celtic tradition, "Graveyard Blues" by The Gits contrasted with the same tune done by Bessie Smith.
