31 Days of Lessons Learned: Day Two
I make a good Halloween-inspired music playlist
Based on my site traffic, I’m getting a lot of folks checking out all the free pumpkin stencils I posted last year. I don’t blame them…it is that time of year after all (in fact, I plan on discussing pumpkins and Halloween later this month as it pertains to a lesson I learned). Seeing all the excitement over last year’s Halloween posts (and because Halloween is awesome), I’ve been starting to get the bug myself. My daughter and I have already decided what we’re being this year (monkeys); I’m going to start reading a really scary book; and I’m going to start watching some scary movies. If there’s any month that you should purposely scare yourself during, it’s October.
All this Halloween buzz also got me thinking about music (just about anything gets me thinking about music though, so that’s no surprise). So, I set out to make a playlist that can get me in the spooky mood. I think I did a pretty good job of it actually. Take a listen and tell me what you think. Be warned, there is a bit of rap on there, and the rap songs are definitely NSFW. I had over 50 songs on this mix at one time, but I pared it down to the following 33 tracks (And before you get on my case about the lack of “Monster Mash” on this mix, I didn’t forget it. In fact, I deliberately avoided it at all costs. It’s a cute song and all, but doesn’t really fit the theme of this mix.
Take a listen and let me know if I really did learn that I make a mean playlist. Comment below with your thoughts and let me know if I forgot anything!
