Darlings, as we enter the final days before Halloween, I thought you might enjoy a few dark and dreamy songs to start your week. This playlist (complied by the exquisite Ghoul Next Door) can be played in its entirety for free at Love and Other Demons on 8tracks.com. Here are six of my favorite videos from the collection.
Mark Lanegan Band, Gravedigger’s Song
Florence + The Machine, Howl
Lera Lynne, Wolf Like Me
Moulettes, Devil of Mine
Backworld, Devil’s Plaything
Karen Elson, The Ghost Who Walks
You may also wish to visit Ghoul Next Door’s lovely tumblr site, mlle ghoul’s fairy tales from the shadows, for more delicious fiendishness. Happy hauntings, darlings!

I’m beginning to wonder what happened…only moments ago it was 14 days til Halloween…now it’s 2…was I abducted by aliens? Oh wait…never mind…I am an alien.
Sigh, no kidding. I was just looking at a “recent” post to link back to and realized it mentioned Halloween being 3 months away. When you speak to your people, please tell them to stop increasing the spin of the earth on its axis – I can’t keep up!
I’ll see what I can do for you Earthlings. 😉
It seems just yesterday I visited the Earth after taking the form of a user named “corkystclaire”
I totally wish the beast would howl in my veins right now.
That could be arranged, darling. 😉
Good music – enjoying the selections.
I’m so glad, darling. If you have a chance, do listen to the whole playlist on 8tracks. It’s quite good.
Stumbled on this post just now, I like the gothic ladies and gentlemen very much, pretty songs!
I’m thrilled you enjoyed it, Madeleine. Did you see the new Nick Cave album is available for streaming right now? I quite liked that, too.
Oh no I’d not. I went to see Grinderman last year (I think), his new band. Is it them?
Nope, it’s actually Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds.
