SAMHAIN

Go Salt the dead, you close the veil
The changer of shapes
alone on hooves
Autumn's cold brings the pagan dead
Who seek the warmth of the Samhain fire
Do you want a paradise
Do you want a sacrifice
This is the night to feast and dine
This is the night to laugh at death
Go go
This is the night to feast and dine
This is the night to laugh at death
Do you want a paradise
Do you want a sacrifice
Salt the dead, you close the veil
The changer of shapes is
alone on hooves
And the autumn's cold
brings the pagan dead
Who seek the warmth of the Samhain fire
Do you want a paradise
Do you want a sacrifice
This is the night to laugh at death
This is the night to feast and dine
I found this list of songs in the paper and thought it was a good idea to copy/paste them so you could hear some soul scaring songs..
I don't expect you to sit there and play each one all at once..but can come back and check them out one at a time...now I'm off to pluck the fucker Dexter out of the tree and finish making the rest of the cupcakes I'm making for Halloween..Covered with spooky icing and candy body parts..whee..boo y'all.

I love Joy Division but if I listen to an entire CD I get sad.

Have a great holiday! We are in our costumes. My husband is a skeleton and I am the "Dick in a Box" with Dick Cheney in my box and a Santa hat on. Boo!

So Dexter is out looking for victims. The best thing to do with a cat in a tree is let it stay there until it gets tired and hungry. It will come down then.
Lots of music to listen to. I played the Doors and then played Riders on the storm from the web site. I guess I'll get to the others later.
Of course it may keep me from posting on my blog for a little while.

Blessed Samhain to you too. This beats my rant about costumes and getting old!

Green tea said...

Lovin Gloomy Sunday..it sure fits this weekend..

rainywalker said...

YDJ,
Hell, I though we were getting ready for supper salting the dead and all. Guess I'll settle for this damn candy with the pins sticking out! Sort of like stuffed peppers with toothpicks. You just eat around them. I'm back till the guys at the VA find where I'm hiding out. They'ed never think to look in the ladies room!

WOW! You've totally posted links to some of my favorite songs. I nearly shit a brick when I saw you posted a link to a Sunn O))) video; they're pretty obscure. The Billie Holiday, Joy Division, and Doors ones are also favorites.
