"Hallowe'en" appreciation thread.
 
Last nite I listened to it over and over again. It's one of the most beautiful and creepy songs ever. Regardless of what inspired it, the title could be more perfect. If I could produce horror films, I'd open lots of them with this. Love it.

horror?
weird love song.
love it to no end.

noisereductions 09.05.2008 08:02 AM

Yeah. That's what I love about it. (And what they perfected a year later with EVOL) is that SOMEHOW they create a sound that is equally beautiful and horrifying. They combine a love song with a horror score. (In my head.) Awesome.

one of my favourite songs of all time. amazing atmosphere to this song, and some of my favourite vocals from Kim.

noisereductions 09.05.2008 09:29 AM

That guitar part is so incredible.

GrungeMonkey 09.05.2008 11:14 AM

yup

That song sounds really "out there". Bad Moon Rising is my favorite SY album actually, especially for this "out there" atmosphere going through the whole album

noisereductions 09.05.2008 01:37 PM

"Brave Men Run" is probably my favorite on there. Especially when combined with "Intro."

SYRFox 09.05.2008 01:40 PM

My favorite duo is Ghost Bitch / I'm Insane. The transition between the two is incredible. Society Is A Hole / I Love Her All The Time is fantastic as well

in a thread a while back about favorite kim vocal performances or songs, i put this one. her voice just glides so nicely and mysteriously

SYRFox 09.05.2008 02:31 PM

Yes, her singing is absolutely perfect on this song. Spectral and fantomatic (okay that's the same thing)

Halloween is pretty cool and I really love the lyrics too. They're powerful lol I want to use the word ''FUCK''.

"Use the word fuck" are Flower's lyrics, not Halloween ;)

But yeah, Halloween has great lyrics too. "There's something shifting in the distance", I really like that line in particular

That's my favorite part too. Such an awesome opening.

deflinus 09.05.2008 03:18 PM

a really great song. i think the cover of the album really describes the atmosphere of the song

The Flower/Hallow'een orange vinyl 12' is my absolute favourite SY fetish item. Everything is perfect... the sounds, the vinyl, the label, the sleeve.
It also reminds me of a very special time in my life. I moved down to London in 1985 and used to blast it through open windows from my first flat on Great Windmill Street on a regular basis.
Also lets not forget the Halloween II 12" another ultimate SY
fetish, Savage etched item.
