Music A-Z: The RIP XVI edition

I interupt Music A-Z to bring you a special RIP themed episode.

RIP stands for Readers Imbibing Peril and is a longstanding event in the book community. It's a chance to dip into anything that might be Mystery, Suspense,Thriller, Dark Fantasy, Gothic, Horror or Supernatural and is time to fit in with Fall in the Northern hemisphere and ends at Halloween. This year, in addition to activity on Instagram, Twitter etc, there is also a Discord group and there is going to be a group read of The Sundial by Shirley Jackson, who I have never read. 

Today I thought I would share some songs that would meet the theme. I have chosen to fogus on the more fun side, but there are lots of other great songs out there that would fit the theme. Someone shared a Spotify Playlist called Southern Gothic which has been fun to listen to this week, in a getting in the mood kind of way.

Ghostbusters by Ray Parker Jr - Who you gonna call?

Bat Out of Hell by Meatloaf - I have a feeling there is probably a better example, but I enjoyed listening to this one for the first time in years!

Thriller by Michael Jackson - If I remember correctly, the first showing of this video was a special TV event!

Spooky by Dusty Springfield

Don't Pay the Ferryman by Chris De Burgh

All You Zombies by The Hooters - My favourite Hooters song is And We Danced, but I couldn't resist sharing this one today.

What other RIP songs are there?
