A Playlist Fit for Mr. Crowley

Halloween is not a holiday known for its connection to great music and yet, each year, we look for the songs that have a spooky edge and often, that brings us back to the classics like Monster Mash and Thriller. I thought I would put together my own Halloween Playlist. This list does not stand alone on any day of the year but there are a few songs I don’t mind hearing outside of October.

This is really just a good excuse to share a stellar live performance by the Edgar Winter Group on the British show, The Old Grey Whistle Test. The man is the dictionary definition of showmanship.
