... instead, you're going to sit at home and creep yourself out. Here's some music that I've been listening to the past couple of days, in honor of the season.

It's not great for parties, but then, neither am I.

Canti del Capricorno no.1 - Giacinto Scelsi (performed by Hirayama Michiko)
Canti del Capricorno no.4 - Giacinto Scelsi (performed by Hirayama Michiko)

Elegia per Thy, for viola & cello - 1 - Giacinto Scelsi
Elegia per Thy, for viola & cello - 3 - Giacinto Scelsi

Wallfahrtslied - Arvo Pärt
Wenn Bach Bienen gezuchtet hatte - Arvo Pärt

(I'm not sure why beekeeping is so menacing.)

Biomutanten - Les Vampyrettes
Black Tar Frequences - Grails
Easy on the Bones - Svarte Griener
The Dining Table - Svarte Griener

Cris D'Aveugle - Diamanda Galás
Je Rame - Diamanda Galás
Sono L'Antichristo - Diamanda Galás
Hex - Diamanda Galás & John Paul Jones

(You can't have Halloween without Diamanda Galás and her interpretations of morbid French poets. That last one might work at a party, now that I think of it. IT DEPENDS ON YOUR GUESTS. Also, if you never downloaded Skótoseme when I posted it before, you really should do so now.)

And just for the hell of it, here are some songs that are a little more, um--or maybe a little less um.

Howl - Florence & The Machine
Varulven - Garmarna
Dead Man's Party When the Lights Go Out - Oingo Boingo
Äijo - Värttinä
Monster - Kanye West feat. Everybody, but especially Nicki Minaj
The Curse of Millhaven - Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds
Jack the Ripper - Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds
Psycho Killer (Live) - Talking Heads
Bloodletting (The Vampire Song) - Concrete Blonde
Harald Kongen - Sorten Muld

Some of those are really nostalgic. But all of them are good*. I urge you to download them even if you're the type of person who dresses up as sexy elmo and therefore have totally missed the point of the holiday.

*Okay, so "Monster" is basically only fantastic once Nicki Minaj starts in and is all like, "Actually, I'm not gonna let you finish. This song is MINE."
