FMD 09/14/2018: Halloween Mix Nominations

Hello, gals and ghouls.  We had the Holiday Mix last year, so this year why don't we do a Halloween Mix*?  The rules for submitting should be pretty similar to the Holiday Mix.

Here are the guidelines:

    • Place up to TWO songs in a 'Spoiler' box. Unlike the Summer Mix, the first choice does not automatically get in.
    • As with other mixes though, popularity reigns, so multiple nominations with increase the likelihood of selection.
    • Obviously there are plenty of different versions of the same song out there. If you want a particular performance, please note which artist you'd prefer (links wouldn't hurt just in case). If no artist is nominated, it will add weight if someone else did pick a specific performance of the same song.

So, drop your lists, nominations, and any music news below!

*We kind of did this in the past, but it was even more half baked than usual.  As promised, let's give it one more go.

  4. Can you link to the nominations the first time this was attempted?
    Because these are probably repeats:

    1. I deleted one (the instrumental I used last time), mostly because I thought of a better one, that I think others might like more.
      It's more topical, less sonically Halloweeny.

    1. I started teaching myself to play your first one on the piano. It's quite easy. I'm still horrible at it. But I've never played piano, so that counts for something, right?
