thanks for the helpfuls hints so far, you guys!
SLINKER: i listened to a random smattering of the silent hill tracks. it's weird, i find half of them GORGEOUS and the other half weird.
TEIM: oh yeah, there shall be Misfits ^^ and i must look into Lordi. i have only a passing knowledge of them. but, well, internet.
FDH: you are a giant FREAK. also, no i watched that video and it is pretty close to EXACTLY what i'm looking for. it has a very spooky sound even if you arent paying attention to what it's about.
also, i thought it might assist with the assist if i gave you a smattering of what i've got going so far. as of now, i have the beginning to disc 1 looking like this:
1. Beetlejuice theme
2. NBC soundtrack - this is halloween
3. Voltaire - when youre evil
4. squirell nut zippers - hell (the afterlife)
5. rezurex - everyday is halloween
6. 45 grave - party time
7. me first and the gimme gimmes - science fiction/double feature
8. misfits - monster mash
that's the official looking tracklist so far. other songs of interest:
concrete blond - bloodletting
creepshow - halloween (misfits cover trying to diversify bands)
choosing a version of "birds fly (whisper to a scream)" I have 3!
choosing a version of "bela lugosi's dead" (got several... anyone have a fave? i can track it down i bet if i dont have it)
something by creature feature, havent decided
choosing a version of "(don't fear) the reaper" (i have 3 of that too)
choosing a version of "cry little sister" as well
michael jackson - thriller
ray parker jr - ghostbusters
the birthday massacre - lovers end
e nomine - mitternacht
something by rob zombie (?)" the creeper" maybe?
and some others which escpae my mind at the moment. as you can see, i need a bit o' help....
