Travis at Trav's Thoughts invites everyone to lay down a short set of music that takes their fancies for his 5 on Friday meme.
Oh joy! Oh bliss!
It's writer retreat time again. At this very moment I'm happily settled amongst the early arrivals at the cottage which my writers' group has rented once a year for nearly a decade now. Up soon: lots of conversation, laughter, walks in the gorgeous autumn woods and by the Atlantic ocean, good food, good wine, writer-ish activities like our yearly brainstorming sessions, and timed-writing sessions where we each work on our individual works-in-progress for a set time (often an hour.)
Until then, enjoy these songs which have all became part of the spooky soundtrack landscape after their appearances in these films and television shows:
1 - Carry On My Wayward Son - Kansas - from Supernatural
2 - Bad Moon Rising - Creedence Clearwater Revival - from An American Werewolf in London
3 - Don't Fear the Reaper - Blue Oyster Cult - from Stephen King's The Stand
4 - Mad World - Gary Jules and Michael Andrews - from Donnie Darko
5 - Twin Peaks theme - composed by Angelo Badalamenti - from Twin Peaks
This piece is a straightforward soundtrack theme written specifically for the series, but it's one of my favorite themes, and one of my favorite shows. The main villain Bob goes down in my personal history as SCARY as heck.
