Halloween Music Day

I solved the problem of all the songs I couldn't remove from my iPod.
When I'm in a mood for a big change of music, I completely replace my primary iPod playlist, rather than remove individual songs.
At one point, I must have accidentally moved my old "AMR's iPod 4" playlist onto one of my bird call playlists that I kept on my iPod.
But I finally got rid of it, but forgot to add my Halloween collection.
I haven't much to add to last year's. Maybe that new Andy Stott.
There might be something good for it on this new-ish album from Vessel.
I've listened to it a lot in the last week trying to figure it out. I don't think it's as good as that review is making it, but I want to listen again and take it further apart just about every time I want to sit down and listen to something.
