Two Tune (un)Tuesday: Halloween

Get a playlist! Standalone player Get Ringtones

Ah, my gothier former self picked these. Despite how godawful the Ministry track is, I do believe it helped save my life.

well I let their teeny minds think
that they’re dealing with someone who is over the brink
and I dress this way just to keep them at bay
‘Cuz Halloween is everyday
Oh, why can’t I live a life for me?
why should I take the abuse that’s served?
why can’t they see they’re just like me?

Oy. I think we can officially blame Al Jourgensen for emo.

NPR has a great spooky music stream today, too.

  1. I have loved that Ministry track for decades. Brings me right back to hanging out at Neo in the mid 80’s trying to drink myself into oblivion to forget how totally socially awkward I felt. Good times, heh. Siouxsie and the Banshees’ “Cities in Dust” reminds of the same clubs and era.

    Sorry, just went on a weird nostalgia trip…
