Here is this year’s 240 best Halloween songs and albums. If you’re a new member this is an invaluable resource. If you have last year’s list it’s been updated with 20 additional songs for your Halloween pleasure. Also, an ICA member shares her plans for her Halloween class and in a few days, I’ll post my own Halloween profile. Here is this year’s best Halloween songs and albums. If you’re a new member this is an invaluable resource of 240 songs including a handful of albums. If you have last year’s list it’s been updated with 20 additional songs for your Halloween pleasure (I’ve highlighted the new additions). You can teach dozens of classes this week and never repeat a song, while keeping your students giggling and gasping. In a few days, I’ll post my own Halloween profile.
I received an e-mail from ICA member Lisa, who suggested a few songs and explained what she is doing for her profile this year. I thought I’d share it with you:
I have been preparing my Halloween class, and your list of songs from last year has been so helpful. I found two additional songs you might want to add. Demons by Imagine Dragons, 2:56, 90 bpm and Dance with the Devil by Breaking Benjamin, 3:47, 155 bpm. I’m having such fun with the E Nomine tunes you suggested.
In my ride, the rider starts out on an afternoon ride on Halloween, and is overtaken by “Die Schwartzen Reiter” (E Nomine)–a mysterious rider dressed all in black who seems to bring cold and dread along with him/her (I play the the dark rider in my class). My class members draw upon their own “powers” through the ride, donning various costumes as they trade attacks and chases with the dark rider. (i.e., you are going to ride this hill as a super hero [Batman, Buffy, Xena]) I use a lot of tracks from the Finsternis CD that you included in your list last year. I can’t wait to teach this one! Thanks for all the inspiration!
Lisa’s students will be talking about that one for a long time I’m sure! I’ve known Lisa for a while and know her to be very focused on her students and making sure their training is effective. Lisa Keeps it Real. But as you can see, she obviously can kick up her heels and have a lot of fun with her students!
If you have any more additions to this year’s list, please leave them in the comments section below.
