What up, witches! It’s another year and another Halloween. Last year, I was all boo-hoo over the fact that no one comes to our abode to trick or treat. Sure, we buy candy, and sometimes we wait for the kiddies to come by, but they never do. It’s kind of sad, but we’re pretty much over it. So, what to do? Well I guess I have sublimated my desire to give treats to strangers to, well, here. Oh, and my apologies for not putting a “full mix” here. For some reason Garageband was acting up and it kept freezing right at the last part of the mix down process. But, half a loaf is better than nothing at all, right? Okay, let’s get this party started!
“I Am Stretched On Your Grave,” Sinéad O’Connor (Download)
Catching lightening in a bottle isn’t easy, but Sinead O’Connor was able to do it on this album. With this song she takes a very old Irish poem and adds a funky beat underneath, but keeps the haunting feeling of the song in tact.

“Helter Skelter,” The Beatles (Download)
“Devil’s Haircut, “ Beck (Download)
“The Ghost of You Lingers,” Spoon (Download)
“My Wife And My Dead Wife,” Robyn Hitchcock (Download)
Coffee for three, but only two can drink it. Such are the trials and travails of having a relationship with your wife … and your dead wife. And, in this song, only Robyn can see his dead wife — who is waiting for him at the bottom of the sea. Creepy.
