When it comes to Halloween pop music, I like the weird to pop up on various screens. For any Halloween events or any Holiday events I usually make a playlist of videos to just “go” while my guests are walking throughout the apartment. Sort of background noise to help get people into the Holiday season and/or establish a mood that is usually set by how I decorated the room or apartment.
For example, creepy classical music is great for a room with a theme dedicated to the Universal Monster movies. When I have a pop horror movie room or an updated movie room, I play songs from Rob Zombie, Lady gaga, or anything equally strange and fast.
I sometimes forget to get a playlist together and usually an event sours or lack because of it. I am not Martha Stewart but adding music to any type of event does stimulate conversation or add to the impact decorations can have. In the past, I might say go on YouTube and create a playlist, but the commercials, two every song gets to be redundant. Nowadays I have the videos saved on a flash drive to plug into a Tv and play them on repeat or I will have the mp3s playing on my computer (not phone) and deposit Bluetooth speakers everywhere. This type of set up is call interruption free.
Now I have to figure out what movies to play for the party…
