Grown-up Halloween Playlist

A little creepy, but not too campy; I will be listening to this playlist to get into the Halloween spirit (and continue to listen to it because I love the songs!).

It’s easy to find ghoulish tunes if you listen to psychobilly or rockabilly music, but I was feeling something a bit more easy listening as well, so I mixed it up a bit.

Tiger Army Never Die

One of my favorite bands has to be Tiger Army. My cousins, brother and I always go see them in concert whenever they are remotely around. They put on a fantastic show and it’s always fun. Our favorite spot to see them is in Santa Cruz.

This is the first songĀ  I heard of theirs:

One of my favorite songs, an essential one to play in Santa Cruz:

Now the lead singer, Nick 13 has a solo album that is back to country roots and we can’t wait to finally see him live as well.

One of the Best Movies Ever: Crybaby

Picture from IMDb

This week I’ve watched Crybaby twice. When I was little, I actually wore out the VHS we had. I hadn’t seen the movie in a while, so I decided to put it on while I was cooking (I can see the TV from the kitchen). It made dinner prep so much more enjoyable!

Great Music, awesome clothing, and a young, hunky Johnny Depp; What’s not to love?

If you haven’t seen this movie, GO. WATCH. IT. NOW. Seriously. It’s absolutely ridiculous but hilarious too.

This is my favorite part:

Because my brother and I watched this movie so often, I wonder if it had influence over our style, since we both dress a bit rockabilly (that and listening to 50’s music tapes all the time).
