    Good suggestions. I've added a few of them (including ESH's "Halloween" ) to the SlothRadio playlist for today.

    Tubular Bells (theme to the Exorcist) - Mike Oldfield

Well I’m better than dirt ... well most kinds of dirt. I mean, not that fancy, store-bought dirt. That stuff’s loaded with nutrients. I can’t compete with that.\"

    Book of Love also did a version of Tubular Bells for their Lullaby album.

    I listed that as "The Sentinel" by Mike Oldfield, but "Tubular Bells" works as well....

    Oops, you are correct. There is a hard to find Book of Love Remix for "Pretty Boys, Pretty Girls" that combines "Pretty Boys, Pretty Girls" with "Sentinel". I think it is called the Tubular Bells mix, its about 14 minutes long.

    Since there have been a few Tubular Bells releases, it's hard to keep track

    It can be found on:

    Would anything off the "Nightmare Before Christmas" soundtrack count? Or is that just a given? Happy Halloween everyone!

    I love that CD! That mix is awesome too.

    I have a few Halloween-like tracks.

    Erasure - "Ghost" (from the "I Love Saturday" E.P.)
    Dead or Alive - "Something In My House"
    Aqua - "Freaky Friday"
    Madonna - "Bedtime Story - (Orbital Mix)" This is one creepy-a$$ mix!
    Anything by Diamanda Galas or Danielle Dax.

    I dunno. The last time I saw her, she was promoting her video release for "Tomorrow Never Knows" (The Beatles cover), on the 'Just Say Yes' video series. "Dark Adapted Eye" was a brilliant piece of work. I first heard of her on the Sire records compilation, "Just Say Mao", with a COMPLETELY awesome remix of "Whistling for His Love". I fell in love instantly. I hope to hear more from her!
