I learned long ago not to try and convert any of them. I think what happened at Disneyland once illustrates it best. In one of the studios at California Adventure, you can use this machine to determine which hero or villain you are.
I was Tarzan. All three of them were villains.
So as October winds down, I'm in a mad rush to get my Christmas station ready to go. Last year, I turned it on a little early, featuring Halloween songs up until November 1, and I may do that again, depending on how things go this week.
In the meantime, even though I've been listening to lots of new Christmas music to get ready (and figure out which new songs I'm going to add this year), I've tried to respect my family's love for the rapidly-approaching Autumn holiday.
So here's what shuffled out of my Halloween Playlist...
Danny Elfman "This Is Halloween"
Blue Oyster Cult "Don't Fear The Reaper"
Weird Al Yankovic "Attack Of The Radioactive Hamsters From A Planet Near Mars'
Screamin' Jay Hawkins "I Put A Spell On You"
The Dickies "Killer Klowns From Outer Space"
Brave Combo "Vampire Twist"
Jumpin' Gene Simmons "Haunted House"
Susan Sarandon "There's A Light Over At The Frankenstein Place'
David Bowie "Scary Monsters and Super Creeps"
Los Lobos "Grim Grinning Ghosts"
Are you getting in the spirit? For either of these holidays? I'm going to continue to try and prepare for both, as I much on this candy cane while trying to figure out where Lisa hid the Halloween candy...
