It’s Halloween! Pretty soon. So we’re asking people we like to pick the scariest songs they know.
Who: Ken Kalfus, author of Equilateral — an awesome book about a rather primitive attempt to communicate with another planet. (That’s not a spoiler.)
What: “Goodnight Moon” by Serafin
Why: I think my favorite scary song is that lovely subversion of the children’s classic, Goodnight Moon — a book I must have read a hundred times when my daughter was small. The first time I heard the song was the version by Shivaree, but I think the original is by Serafin, and I prefer the latter because the hilariously frightening lyrics are easier to make out.
(Sadly, that seems to be the only song not on YouTube, so we had to embed the Shivaree version, from the Kill Bill soundtrack.)
