Having participated in my third Green Monkey Music Project, I have earned the title of Green Monkey Master. I thank Splotchy for this honor and for all the work he's done in creating cool, themed music mixes. This one was Halloween-themed. While my songs aren't necessarily scary, they do contain minimal references to Halloween-based elements. Here are my selections:
- Dick Dale - Ghostrider In The Sky: I've had the pleasure of seeing Dick Dale, the king of surf guitar, in concert a few times. He's a no-nonsense kind of performer. Most of you know him as the guy who did the theme to "Pulp Fiction".
- Fats Waller - Abercrombie Had A Zombie: I figured a zombie was fitting for Halloween. Fats Waller music is almost always fun and swinging.
- Tones On Tail - Movement Of Fear: This song is pretty eerie-sounding so I thought it fit. There isn't a lot of Tones On Tail music out there, but I think what exists is pretty neat. I'm sure Bauhaus and Love And Rockets fans are probably familiar with them.
- Donovan - Season Of The Witch: Usually Donovan is singing about butterflies and rainbows, but here he strays into the darker side. I love Donovan, cheeseball as he can be. I met him at a Tower Records and he signed the liner notes on my copy of "A Gift From A Flower To A Garden".
- Velvet Underground - The Black Angel's Death Song: That's a pretty scary title, huh? I really like the Andy Warhol album this is off of.
