Since we are only days away from Halloween, I wanted to do a post about songs that have the ability to make the hair stand up on the back of your neck.
I can’t wait to hear from each of you, about your favorite haunted song.
I think for most of us growing up in the seventies, we automatically think of Hotel California by the Eagles. “You can check out anytime you like, but you can never leave…” The songwriters on this classic are Don Felder, Don Henley and Glenn Frey.
I have a couple of favorites that never fail to cause the hairs on my arms to stand on end. The first is a song by Guy Clark.
The Guitar was co-written by Guy Clark and Verlon Thompson.
“The guitar almost played itself and there was nothing I could do. It was gettin’ hard to tell just who was playing who…”
But it’s the last line that really gets to me. “There was something spooky in his voice, and something strange on his face, and when he shut the lid, I saw my name was on the case…”
Another one I love is The Lost Highway Saloon.
The lyrics say it best. “Many times I rode that highway looking for that place again. But there’s only hills and open fields and soon the highway ends…”
And when Brian Burns reads William B. Travis’ letter written at the Battle of the Alamo, I have chills from head to toe.
Now, it’s your turn!
What is your favorite haunted song that leaves you with goosebumps?
