This is seriously my favorite holiday of the year. I have some pretty awesome vampire teeth I'll use to scare any unsuspecting children that come knocking tonight, and I'm painting my three year old daughter's face like a skeleton. Screw that princess shit.
Speaking of Halloween, I love Halloween songs. We started the day by watching The Nightmare Before Christmas, which is arguably the best Halloween/Christmas movie ever. One of my favorite songs is "Jack's Lament," where Jack has an existential crisis, and realizes that while he has everything he has ever wanted, he still feels like he's missing something in his life:
Then, after watching Nostalgia Chick's review of The Worst Witch, I learned of a music scene which sadly has escaped my radar my entire life. Until now:
I can't figure out if Tim Curry singing this 80s music vomit was making me happy, sad, confused, etc. What is going on there? All I know is that my jaw dropped early on, and stayed in that position until long after the clip was over.
Also, I'm planning on carving a pumpkin here soon, which always reminds me of this short movie, The Life and Death of a Pumpkin:
So there. Hope you enjoy these videos and be sure to scare the children tonight.
I know I will.
