One of the great things about Halloween is the music that is out there. My mom, one year she recorded her favorite songs that she thought would be good for Halloween and made a mix tape. She would record off the record player and the radio and made her own tape that she played while giving out candy.
The subdivision that we go trick-or-treating at does the same thing. Some houses have scary music that they play. But those are the CD's that they buy at the store and while I have seen some of those CD's, I am not a big fan of the music that is on there.
If you want to make your own music, there is a free way and a frugal way to do it. If you have music that you would consider scary and you have them on your CD collection, burn those into your computer and make your own CD. If you use Amazon and Itunes (which I have not progressed to yet), you know that you can download songs for about $.99 a song depending on what you want. I don't think it's worth spending $10 on those CD's at the store when you can make them yourself. There is plenty of technology out there to do it free and frugally.
This is what my mother had on her tape: Thriller, Monster Mash, Ghostbusters, I Want to Bite Your Hand (she found this on another tape), Someone's Watching Me, Werewolves of London, the Theme Song to Halloween. Sometimes, she would record parts of the movie that she thought were scary. That is just a sample of what she had, sadly, I don't know what happened to the tape.
So, if you have a party to go to, giving out candy, or just want to be in the spirit of Halloween, burn or download some songs into your MP3 Players and jam out.
I would love to hear what songs you listen to that get you in the spirit of Halloween.
