Alright, so the last two days I’ve been posting a slew of Halloween songs – songs about murder, two headed dogs, and other spooky things. I feel like I’ve kinda lectured readers with the whole “oh, these are deep cuts” and “hey, you don’t know Roky Erickson, whatever” sort of attitude. So tonight, let’s just rejoice in some good old fashioned Halloween classics!

Black Sabbath, “Black Sabbath”, Black Sabbath, 1970

The Clovers, “Love Potion No. 9”, 1959
