For those of you who don't know, I will be deejaying a zombie prom in Danville next weekend. I have been watching a lot of horror movies in preparation, and have been keeping track of my progress here. I have also been trying to put together a list of songs for this event: I want to make them danceable, but I also want to keep a sinister feel. So I've been looking for songs with a sinister vibe, or songs that make reference to monsters or something.
I have also been trying my hand at remixing some horror movie themes, and you can find my results here. I'm pretty happy with them so far. Check them out and give me some feedback if you get the time.
Anyway, I thought I would list some of the songs that I have collected for the event, and see what you thought. Feel free to give me your suggestions.
