Happy Halloween, From Soundcheck

The Soundcheck team presents a Halloween playlist.

You may have noticed that Soundcheck has been a little less active than normal this week, and that's because we've been unable to get to our offices both during and immediately after Hurricane Sandy. Fortunately, everyone on the Soundcheck team fared the storm pretty well, and at this point, we're all getting a little bit stir-crazy at home.

We decided to put together a playlist, and since today is October 31st -- well, it's a spooky one. So whether your Halloween plans are proceeding as normal -- or they've been scrapped due to the aftermath of the hurricane -- enjoy this creepy collection.

We've got some old Halloween standbys, like "I Put a Spell on You" (producer Katie Bishop chose the She & Him version) and David Bowie's "Scary Monsters (And Super Creeps)" (from web producer Mike Katzif). But it also includes some slightly less traditional -- yet equally creepy -- songs, like Judy Collins' "Pirate Jenny" (from technical director Irene Trudel), Mirel Wagner's "No Death" (from producer Gretta Cohn), Antelope's "The Demon" (from Gig Alert producer Alex Abnos) and Tom Waits' "Earth Died Screaming" (from senior producer Joel Meyer).

Plus, host John Schaefer contributes the song "War" from Norwegian black metal project Burzum -- which, quite frankly, will probably give us all nightmares tonight -- great, great nightmares. 

And if you feel inspired to throw on your Halloween costumes and parade around your house while listening to our playlist, take a picture and send it to pics@wnyc.org. WNYC is putting together a virtual Halloween parade and we want you to be a part of it.
