The Twelve Days of Halloween, Day Eight: X-Entertainment Halloween Jukebox!

Anyone working in a creative field, or any field where need your eyes and hands but your ears are left bored, needs a steady supply of entertaining noise. However, when it comes to finding a good Halloween themed playlist Pandora and Turntable can fall a little short. Where oh where can I find a site that will play Alice Cooper's Feed My Frankenstein followed by Blue Oyster Cult's Don't Fear the Reaper?

Take it from me, Pandora just don't understand. 

Ryan and I are both fans of the blog X-Entertainment. Year round X-Entertainment reviews toys of the 1980s, retro marketing campaigns, and other nuggets of forgotten pop culture. If there's something cool you remember but can't quite recall the name of, chances are it's there.

Halloween is a great time to tune in as the reviewer Matt tests out holiday dollar store finds, cheap make up kits, and the dark traditions commercialism has brought us. He is a collector of all things strange and cheesy and the Halloween music playlist he's assembled is out of this world.

Sure Pandora can play you the Ghostbusters theme, but will it bring you that and Elvira's Monster rap?

From to the theme from Teen Wolf, to Echo and the Bunnymen's Killing Moon, to Count Duckula, to Rob Zombie, to the Monster Mash, to Ministry's Everyday is Halloween, to Oingo Boingo's Dead Man's Party, to Marilyn Manson, to Mozart's Requiem Dies Irae this playlist actually has it all.

If you follow the link to X-Entertainment you'll find an adorable jukebox halfway down the page on the right beside some little ghosts. Click on that, or CLICK HERE to open the window for yourself.

At home or at work in his lab editing video, Ryan has been playing this in a spare window since before October. Today I'm baking Halloween treats and I have it playing on my own computer. After yesterday's scary music list, I thought this jukebox would make a great share for the eighth day of Halloween! This playlist will easily carry you through the Halloween weekend to come.
