Halloween Playlist: Monster Mausoleum

by juli boggs

Halloween is coming up next Sunday and this is the second year in a row that I’ve put together a playlist for the occasion. For the short duration of the mix I’ve spent extraordinarily too much time on it, which goes to show that art really is about the process. That’s right, art. Have you even read through the track titles? What does it mean?

Halloween extra life, bad moon rising
Mi sei apparso come un fantasma.
Bled White skeleton, velvet cave mausoleum,
Transylvanian shadow music,
Inside the Postojna Cave, hell becomes me.
