PLAYLIST FOR “HALLOWEEN PARTY 2018” (10.27.18)

28 Oct

Time for my annual Halloween party with haunting melodies sung by some of my favorite ghosts and others. Another Turntable For One tradition: trick or treaters coming to the door dressed in celebrity costumes and me handing out appropriate songs to them (since I’ve usually eaten all of the Halloween candy by then). This year, because of the truly scary and horrible events of Saturday and the past week(s), I started with a special Nina Simone song I’d play if the poor battered and beleaguered world came to my door. Nina recorded that song in 1968. Why is it still so heartbreakingly relevant today?
