Halloween is definitely one of if not Martin's favorite holiday (heck, that's actually his normal desktop photo above.) So for this week's episode of Talking 80s Music goes somewhere we haven't before -- original songs from 80s horror films. We played classic songs by Paul Zaza, Gerard McMahon and Steve Parsons from the films My Bloody Valentine, Lost Boys and The Howling II. Sure, you might not recognize the names, you do know the movies and you should recognize these songs by artists we really should have heard more from. We urge you to turn off the lights and listen to the second half of the show in the dark to really get the effect of the songs.
Everything rolled along pretty well for this show. No major issues and it made for a quick edit. We'd also love to hear your favorite horror songs of the 1980s in our comments area below. We tried to avoid some overplayed songs and ones by artists we would do full episodes on (The Ramones, AC/DC, etc.) Have a great Halloween folks!
