The subject of death is a strange one in music. After all, none of us alive have personally experienced it, by the very virtue that we're still alive. We might have been close to it, or lost loved ones, but we've not actually gone through the process ourselves. So perhaps uniquely for a subject used so much in music, it is always a second-hand view.
We are hurtling at what seems like great speed to the end of the year already, and as such this is now the last tracks of the month roundup of 2015 - and yes, it's a week late. The delay was for a couple of reasons - a chaotic, drunken and messy Whitby for one, and then a slew of great new songs released that weekend that I wanted to check out first.
Thanks to doing some planning in advance for my DJ sets at the GVWI Hallowe'en Party on Saturday, the inspiration hit me quite quickly to consider a Ten based upon the spooky goings-on around Hallowe'en. Some are directly relevant, some are on themes appropriate for the subject. Either way, consider it a relation to previous Tuesday Ten: 126.
