Filthy Dreams’ From Here to Eternity HALLOWREEN X Playlist

From here to eternity: a baptism at the Reawaken America Tour in Batavia, NY (Associated Press, 2022)

Welcome to the 10th edition of our HALLOWREEN playlist! That’s right, 10 years and kicking, though these days, Marion is looking more like Willem Dafoe from The Lighthouse, and Emily more like Mia Goth from Pearl: I’m a STARRRR!!

Over the past 10 years, we have compiled music playlists to put the spin into your Frankenstein Stomp. Each one of our playlists has catered to our various obsessions, from monsters like Drac, Franky, and Godzilla themed playlists, to bug chasers and disease goopers through COVID-themed playlists; and even playlists for those with more of a fetish for alien abduction and probing. Take me to your leader!

While each playlist centers on a particular theme, a thread connects through each of them: manic devotion. Devotion for the themes, yes, but also for the songs we choose, for old-timey Halloween songs juxtaposed with disco, and for how long we can stretch each playlist to drown in our devotion. For example, our Country Halloween songs playlist clocks in at 4 hours and 25 minutes; but then our Make COVID Great Again playlist is a staggering 8 hours and 2 minutes! You’ll pray never to test negative after that! So, for our 10th anniversary, we have decided to reach the event horizon of our own obsessions through our From Here to Eternity HALLOWREEN playlist! Such manic devotions include horror cinema soundtracks, all things Nick Cave and David Lynch, the embodiment of Americana through Elvis Presley, Marilyn Monroe, and gay serial killers; manic spirituals and wild political rallies; disco; sea hags; bad Halloween sounds; dancing with Scarecrows; speaking in tongues; and of terrorists in all shapes and sizes.

Go ahead and take the plunge. Allow yourself to be baptized through 7 hours and counting of devotion. Show the world. Let them know it’s HALLOWREEN! Hit it!
