MUSIC: Song Of The Day - Halloween Edition (Oct 17): "Country Death Song" By The Violent Femmes

I know that a good number of people claim that this - "Country Death Song" by The Violent Femmes - is a sick and creepy song. All I can say is - Yes, it IS a sick and creepy song. It's about a father killing his daughter! How can it not be creepy?

I think the problem is that Gordon Gano captured the mindset of a person who would kill his own daughter very well, and we begin to sympathize somewhat with this guy. And that's what's creepy. And that's what makes this a perfect Halloween song!

And this video is perfect for the song!

This is a fairly good sampling of some of the music I listen to. It's missing a few genres I like - such as cajun. I'll work on that later. But it does contain most of my favorite artists. I tried to steer away from the better known songs to give you a better idea of what kind of music the artists play, but I was limited by the songs the website - Project Playlist - had available. But if you want to get an idea of what I listen to, just hit the play or arrow button. - OlderMusicGeek

The internet station that does the best of playing my music is Last.fm. Here's my station if you're interested.

This website, OlderMusicGeek Radio on Pandora.com, does a fairly decent job of playing what I like, although they do occasionally play stuff I don't care for, but overall they're pretty good.
