Happy Halloween everyone! Thought I would use this time to make a more seasonally dark mix, as it gives me an excuse to use some songs that may not normally make it onto my mixes. I never know what makes me like some dark songs... sometimes all it takes is a rightly timed woodblock or mystery tambourine. Lol. Although I do like a lot of darker, more electronic music, it is sometimes a lot more difficult to mix them together smoothly. In addition, I find that a lot electronic music tends to drone, so I needed to chop a lot of songs up. Do to all this, I actually had to spend quite a bit more time on this mix than most.

I did manage to squeeze in one semi-discoey-house song on here, but it is called Piano In The Dark (a cover of an 80's song), so I would say it is still on topic. You can chalk it up to my queen-out moment for the mix and I got it out of the way at the beginning. You didn't think I could get away with not having one, did you? :-)

A few songs do standout to me on here. Bleeding Love is of course not a new song, but I just ran across this mashup of it and Thriller a few weeks ago and Trypsin was kinda enough to share it. And what kind of spooky mix would it be without Thriller? I just thought it was kinda a fun mashup and loves me some Leona.

I will tell you that Funkerman feat. Shermanology - Automatic is one of those simple songs that just really grabbed me a first listen. I'm not really sure why, but I think it has got to be the vocals. I almost wish there was an extended mix with more.

The true standout here, though, is Plumb - Hang On (Dave Audé Extended Mix). Oh my gosh. This song gave me goose bumps the first few seconds I heard it. The lyrics are very touching and uplifting. Tiffany's vocals are pleading and gorgeous, with a very Imogen quality. Dave's mix is just perfect -- great breakdown/bridge and subtle builds. The whole production is just beautiful. I can't say enough good things about it.
