True Endeavors’ Question Of The Week: Haunted Playlist Edition



Happy Monday everyone!  We hope you all enjoyed the weekend full of shows.   Our busy season is just getting ramped up, so there’ll be plenty more to check out in the coming days.  Last week we asked you to tell us about your favorite scary movies of all time.  Continuing in that vein, in the spirit of the season, we want to know what songs you’d put on your Halloween playlist.

Post a comment below with at least three songs that you’d be sure to include, and you’ll be entered to win a pair of tickets to a True Endeavors club show of your choice!  (Click here to check out our current lineup.)

Have your responses posted by 6pm on Sunday, October 20.  A winner will be chosen and notified shortly thereafter.  Good luck!

  1. –Thriller, Michael Jackson (I know, I know, it’s a cheap choice, but it’s gotten to the point where hearing that song reminds me of fall leaves and pumpkin carving, so I do actually have some autumn sentiment attached to it.)
    –Homeward Bound, Simon & Garfunkel (One of my mom’s favorite songs/artists, and her birthday is a couple days before Halloween. She always started to bogart the stereo around this time of year.)
    –Bark at the Moon, Ozzy (Gotta have a werewolf-themed in here somewhere, right?)
    –I Got This Love, Watsky (He talks about fall leaves a bit in this song. Honestly though, it’s just because I’ve been really into Watsky lately.)
    –Gangnam Style, PSY (No explanation needed, I’m sure.)
    –The Pretender, Foo Fighters (Get it? The pretender! You know, like someone that dresses up in a costume? Never mind.)
