It's been a few years since she's made a Halloween mix, but I'm hoping to get her back into the habit this year.
- Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds, "Papa Won't Leave You, Henry"

- Johnny Cash, "(Ghost) Riders in the Sky"
- My Bloody Valentine, "Feed Me With Your Kiss"
- Link Wray, "Jack the Ripper"
- Danzig, "Mother"
- Guns N' Roses, "You're Crazy"
- Screamin' Jay Hawkins, "Frenzy"
- Black Sabbath, "Supernaut"
- Jarvis Cocker & Beth Ditto, "Temptation"
- The Specials, "Ghost Town"
- Public Image Ltd., "Flowers of Romance"
- The Edgar Winter Group, "Frankenstein"
- The Five Blobs, "The Blob"
- Thom Yorke, "Black Swan"

Ellen is also a big Fiona Apple and Jarvis Cocker fan, so I've included non-album tracks from both of them. I'm hoping she'll appreciate the cabin fever horror of "You're Crazy" and the beautifully bleak "Black Swan," and I'm pretty sure she'll find Danzig hilarious. But if she doesn't, she can always rock out to "Frankenstein."
