I am feeling miserable this week. Very sick, so I'm not sure how detailed my blogs will be this week. So in lieu of something more mentally stimulating, I'm presenting another Paladin Playlist because it's way easier on me.
Now I mentioned wanting to watch The Nightmare before Christmas in my last couple of posts. A good part of that is the music. Now, don't get me wrong, Danny Elfman did amazing with that soundtrack. It's iconic. But something completely new came when other artists were allowed to play around with it. About this time last year I featured Sally's Song performed by Amy Lee. Well, this time around I have to take the title theme, This is Halloween by Marilyn Manson.
I don't know what it is, but there's something about the way Manson represents this song. It's creepier. Darker. Edgier. And it was pretty good to start with. This time of year it's a great song to get you in the Halloween mood, but it's also great for writing. Well, at least if you're writing stuff like me. There's a certain mindset that is perfect for writing dark, demonic creatures, and this song, particularly this version, really seems to encapsulate that.
So, prepare yourselves for the spookiest time of year and enjoy Marilyn Manson's rendition of This is Halloween.
Keep your eyes open for my debut novel, The Paladin.
