DAVID BOWIE HALLOWEEN PLAYLIST
Sure to liven up any Halloween party (well, probably not, unless you're a Bowie fan). Arranged chronologically, which is one of the best ways to arrange a Bowie mix.
- 1.Please Mr. GravediggerA novelty song from Bowie's self-titled first album. Reminds me of the X-Files episode "Irresistible."
- 2.All the MadmenFrom THE MAN WHO SOLD THE WORLD (which also includes the Lovecraftian "The Supermen").
- 3.Future Legend
- 4.Diamond DogsThis track and its creepy intro ("Future Legend") introduce us to the character Halloween Jack and his dystopian world. From the album DIAMOND DOGS, obviously.
- 5.Some AreHaunting outtake from the LOW sessions. Features samples of howling wolves.
- 6.Scary Monsters (And Super Creeps)Of course. From the album of the same name.
- 7.Cat People (Putting Out Fire)Recorded for the horror remake CAT PEOPLE in the early 80s. Co-written with Giorgio Moroder (who scored the film).
- 8.Magic DanceI guess we should have something from LABYRINTH.
- 9.Glass SpiderA strange spoken word song from one of Bowie's least interesting albums (NEVER LET ME DOWN).
- 10.Video CrimesFrom the first TIN MACHINE album. I think it's supposed to be about slasher films.
- 11.The Voyeur Of Utter Destruction (As Beauty)
- 12.Wishful Beginnings
- 13.I'm DerangedThese three tracks from OUTSIDE are sung from the perspective of the Minotaur, an artist/murderer. "Wishful Beginnings" is particularly disquieting.
- 14.I'm Afraid Of Americans (V1)The Nine Inch Nails remix. Speaks for itself. From EARTHLING.
- 15.AfraidA strikingly confessional song about existential fear from HEATHEN.
- 16.The Next DayFrom the album of the same name. Best accompanied by the joyfully blasphemous video.
