TVD's Parting Shots

Unlike last year's Halloween-themed playlist which was an almost obligatory rummage through the Goth LPs, this year I decided to REALLY scare the (bat)shit outta ya'.

Barry Manilow - I Write The Songs (Mp3)
Air Supply - All Out Of Love (Mp3)
Anne Murray - Could I Have This Dance (Mp3)
Cat Stevens - Morning Has Broken (Mp3)
Gordon Lightfoot - Sundown (Mp3)
Neil Sedaka - Laughter In The Rain (Mp3)
Helen Reddy - Torn Between Two Lovers (Mp3)
Melissa Manchester - Don't Cry Out Loud (Mp3)
John Denver - Annie's Song (Mp3)
Debbie Boone - You Light Up My Life (Mp3)

Truly we have never known such terror!

Fortunately I am working that whole four hours ahead thing here again, and the drink dulls the senses x

Wanna know scary? These ten tracks o' terror are being downloaded like CRAZY.

Davy H said...

YIKES! Most popular so far?

JON said...

It's a tie between Mr. Manilow and Mr. Lightfoot @ 3:45 EST.

Frightening!

Damn, gonna have to download "Morning has Broken". Brings back great 6th grade memories.

Oh, the horror of admitting that!

JON said...

Aiiiieee!

I grew up in the 70's and loved most of these songs, because this was what was being played on the radio at the time. I had no perspective then, but still have a soft spot for them today.

I've been enjoying your site for months but I've never left a comment. But this list made me laugh so hard I had to write and say Cheers!

But, truth be told, I own some of these classics. I never listen to them unless I'm alone in my car so nobody knows.

Happy Halloween!

Ha - thanks all for kind words...

Ha. Before I looked at the list I was trying to figure out what songs there were that could scare anyone. Now I can see.

This is probably the scariest post I have ever seen. The Debbie Boone track would even have her Dad reaching for the sick bowl.

Mick said...

A bit late with this comment I know but I've only just read this post. That is a scary list but (confession time) I love Cat Stevens and that Gordon Lightfoot song. Keep it to yourself.

I WAS singing that Neil Sedaka tune myself for much of the weekend. Much to the dismay of a few, to be honest...
