I like Halloween. I like costumes. I like fun size candy bars. I like scary storiesâ€”you better believe I will be busting out the Poe come Saturday. I also like the pop music. These are my top three:
1. No One Lives Forever, Oingo Boingo
2. Bela Lugosi Is Dead, Bauhaus
3. Halloween Head, Ryan Adams
Honorable mention: Country Death Song (Violent Femmes), People Are Strange (Doors; spookier cover: Echo and the Bunnymen), Camouflage (Stan Ridgeway), Werewolves of London (Warren Zevon), Donâ€™t Fear the Reaper (Blue Oyster Cult), Psycho Killer (Talking Heads), Bad Moon Rising (CCR; spookier cover: Rasputina), Pet Cemetery (Ramones).
