The Gorillaz may not seem like an obvious choice for a Halloween playlist, or maybe they do, depends on you I suppose. I would certainly feature them heavily in a dance based list.
There is something about slower, heavy bass that fits in well on Halloween. And here are a few songs, although by no means all of their songs that could be, on my Halloween playlist.
- Dracula. Not just for the title. The slow bass groove and minimal accompaniment has a dreamy, strange quality that fits in just fine.
- Clint Eastwood. Maybe it’s the video that makes it feel like a good Halloween song, but the vibe of the music is pretty creepy all on its own.
- Tomorrow Comes Today. A haunting song that works very well for setting a subdued mood if you want to chill things out.
- 19 2000, Feel Good Inc, Dare, and Dirty Harry. Not really Halloween tracks, but they do have that slightly creepy Gorillaz feel to them, and are good for adding some bounce to a list.
