Looking for Halloween related albums to play at work today, and I stumble across a 100-track compilation of “Gothic & Industrial for Vampires & Halloween”…from the title I assume it will be crap, but it starts with an Alien Sex Fiend track, and streams are free on Rhapsody, so we’ll see I say, and hit play. As I’m listening to the first track, I scroll down to some of the tracks that weren’t visible on the first page, and there it is, “The Promise” by When In Rome. Don’t get me wrong, I like the song plenty, I just never considered it an especially Goth-y song, much less Halloween-y. So now I have to re-listen to it, to see if it has some sort of stalker vibe that I never picked up before.
Yeah, don’t get it.
Another mix, “Songs About Candy” includes a Shirley Temple track, immediately followed by an Insane Clown Posse track.
I’m starting to think they let all of the people who actually knew something about music go, in the last round of lay-offs.
