Count down to the 'ween

A lot of Americans consider Thanksgiving to be the start of the "holiday season". Being a big fan costumes and free candy, I beg to differ and consider Halloween to be the grand kickoff. I love Halloween. I love music videos. In celebration of the festive season I'll be recommending 10 music videos that, with a little imagination, could be seen as rather fitting for the occasion.

Each video thrills me in its own way, so the videos will be posted two each day in no particular order. Believe me, I tried to make a "best of" list but just did not have the heart.....

#10. Bauhaus - Bella Lugosi's Dead (from The Hunger)
I much prefer this clip over the video for the single. Bauhaus made a brief appearance in the 80's vampire flick "The Hunger". Staring David Bowie, Catherine Deneuve, and Susan Sarandon. I consider this movie to be something of a cheesefest, so it does not particularly trigger my "ick" radar.



#9. Aphex Twin - Come to daddy
Come to think of it, just about every Aphex Twin video I can think of falls under "creepy"...




So there we have it. Watch out for the next two videos tomorrow (and the aforementioned new regular addition to Tuesdays)....
