Thank you for all of these mixes. I know it must be hard work, but this the perfect thing to countdown to Halloween with!

I never knew there existed so many songs about lycanthropy. Between the songs in this particular mix, and the nearly one-song-per-mix before this... I could put together an entire CD of nothing but strictly werewolf music.

I used to be obsessed with werewolves as a kid. My friends and I had a sort of secret "club" which was more like a general understanding between all our friends... that we were all secretly monsters and we had to hide it from all the other kids in the school. This was in Bar Harbor, ME back in the 80's. We never spoke as if we were just playing a game... we really wanted to believe that we were all monsters. We would go to the cemetery in town and hang out, and look for ghosts and describe the people buried there as villains whose spirits we had to fight (I remember a particularly exhausting adventure that had us using a Tiki-man necklace, and a music box as weapons against the evil spirits, that ended with us sneaking into the church and accidentally ringing the church bells, which were connected to an innocent-seeming keyboard we experimented with). We would also go to the library as a group and look up reference materials about witchcraft, ghost stories, and monsters. There is also a brook that runs through town and we'd hang out down there, hidden behind the athletic fields in town, acting all ferocious and eerie. In our group we had two werewolves, a witch, two brother/sister aliens hiding in human form, a robot encased in flesh who claimed his parents built him, and two vampires.

All this music has changed the way Halloween tastes in my head, but its also bringing back a lot of old memories too. I haven't really been obsessed with werewolves for a very long time... but I've been thinking more and more about them lately for some strange reason.
The Halloweens I spent with those friends as a child were the most magical, black velvet Halloweens I will ever recall. Every kid deserves to have just one of those Halloweens they can look back on with a secret smile and remember the black magic of the night.
