Mo' Music: October 29

A shout out to Lou and scary songs to hear in the dark

Lou Reed
Lou Reed

In the midst of all this kitschy horror, a real one came in the passing of the amazing Lou Reed. In high school I stole the first two Velvet Underground albums from Best Buy. I played them to whomever would listen, and most didn't get it. But I did. A spell was cast from the first chime of "Sunday Morning" that will never be lifted. R.I.P.

"Here She Comes Now" Velvet Underground
My favorite Lou Reed piece is this simple hypnotic song.

"No Tears" Tuxedomoon
Dry up those tears, because the creatures of the night are all going to laugh at you.

"Crawling on Bruised Knees" Pharmakon
Play this black angel's death song and say Pharmakon in your mirror three times. I dare you.

"Surfin' Dead" The Cramps
It's a surfing safari, and you are the game. Lux want brains.

"We Hit a Wall" Chelsea Wolfe
Hell hath no fury like a broken heart.

"Dunkelheit" Burzum
Unlike Charles Manson's fey folk music, Varg Vikernes' Burzum project sounds exactly like what's going on in a murderer's mind.

Happy Halloween!
