It’s almost Halloween, in the United States, and what better way to get into the mood than to listen to some Halloween songs. Now there are many songs that can spook people out…or make people think that Ray Parker Jr. was a genius. Today, with the faint smell of pumpkin on my hands, I present my Top 6 Halloween Songs. I hope they put you in the Halloween mood before your candy-induced coma sets in. Feel free to add your own favorites in the comments.
Apparently Spaced, a TV series directed by Edgar Wright, has just been released on Netflix streaming…I’ve heard really good things about it from my buddy John over at tdylf, so naturally I’m pumped. I plan on knocking all the episodes out this weekend…I think there’s only 14 episodes.
Soo, I am a huge Edgar Wright fan. I’ve loved his big three movies (so far): Shaun of the Dead, Hot Fuzz, and Scott Pilgrim vs. The World. And when Spaced was announced on Netflix, I started thinking…I wonder if it’s going to have as kickass of a soundtrack as his movies…wait…I should write about Wright’s kickass selection of music for his movies!
So in this installment of Crossfade, let’s listen to my 9 favorite songs from Edgar Wright’s movies.
Crossfade: To fade out an image or sound while simultaneously fading in a new image or sound. Basically, during our crossfades we’ll talk music & movies, music & art, movies & art, etc. It gives me an outlet to explore the effects of art on art…sounds kinky doesn’t it?
Well today, I’ve been thinking about Wes Anderson movies and how much fun it is to follow the music in his movies.
