Mixtape Mondays | Monster Tracks Revisited

Monday, October 31, 2016 0 Comments A+ a-

This is probably the quickest playlist ever put together, but have you been in a situation when thought after thought, one thing leads to another and suddenly you cannot ignore it? So let's see if you can follow me on this one or if at the end you will be most definitely certain I am out of my mind.

Who never danced and banged their head to The Cranberries' Zombie? Please tell me I am not alone...

Today is Halloween and I just came back from a Tom Chaplin gig. Yup, that guy from Keane. Keane, a band which's been on a break for 3 or so years, but that only a couple of months ago released a song for the film A Monster Calls... Can you see where I am getting with it?

Mixtape Mondays | Monster Tracks Revisited


I wasn't planning on a Halloween playlist, but then I remembered the first ever collaborative mixtape I've attempted. And so it happens it was called Monster Tracks and I had the help - to be honest, he pretty much took over after my first two songs - of one of my best friends, who at the end of this week moves to New Zealand.

Well, there you have it. This is not exactly the same playlist we made a couple of years ago, but I did revisit it for inspiration. Without further ado, a bunch of pretty awesomely spooky tracks from the likes of Royal Blood, Radiohead, Nothing But Thieves, The Smashing Pumpkins, The Cure, Queens Of The Stone Age and of course, a handful of classics - from The Cranberries' Zombie to Michael Jackson's Thriller - if you're in the mood to extend the Halloween spirit for another week.
