Big Bill Love’s Top 20 Classic Country Creepy Halloween Hits
You don't normally connect country music with creepy Halloween tunes but I have searched the dark corners of our WKDQ music dungeon and dug out my top 20 from our "COUNTRY CLASSICS" heard on Saturday mornings. Listen to these eerie tearies and schedule your therapy:
Monsters Holiday – Buck Owens - Little Buck takes on Wolfman, Drac, Frank and the Hunchback and out sings them all
The Highwayman – The Highwaymen - You'll never drive across Boulder Dam without thinking who it's made of
The Devil Went Down to Georgia - Charlie Daniels - Little Johnny kicks some serious devil butt
Riding With Private Malone – David Ball - a pretty good deal on a used 1966 Corvette but it's prone to catching fire
Ronnie Milsap - Stranger in My House - OK this one isn't as creepy as the others but I needed one more to make an even twenty
Blind Man in the Bleachers – Dickie Lee - If this one doesn't get you goin'--your switch is stuck
Midnight in Montgomery - Alan Jackson - the ghost of Hank appears at his own grave. Well--a gig is a gig
What Have You Got Planned Tonight Diana - Merle Haggard - Is Merle taking his own life to be with his deceased Diana? You make the decision
Marie Laveau – Bobby Bare - about the real Voodoo Queen of New Orleans who feeds Handsome Jack to the gators
Jeannie's Afraid of the Dark - Dolly Parton and Porter Wagoner - This is very very creepy -- don't listen unless your lights are on
Where Grass Won't Grow - George Jones - just as creepy as the Dolly and Porter tune except it's the singer's wife instead of child.
Legend of Wolly Swamp – Charlie Daniels - the male version of Marie Laveau with Lucas Clay getting revenge like Marie did.
Phantom 309 - Red Sovine - Based on a true story that happened in 1962 in New Hampshire. Much creepier cause it's true
Paper Rosie - Gene Watson - Rosie was just dying to sell her roses
Devil Woman – Marty Robbins - Well she wasn't a real devil-just just played one on this tune
Ghost Riders in the Sky - Johnny Cash - you'll never look at those cow-shaped clouds the same again
The Last Ride – Hank Snow - The singer breaks all the health laws to bring the dead body of his hobo friend home
Long Black Veil – Lefty Frizzell - another love quadrangle song involving a man, a woman,a murder and a lamppost
The Ride -David Allan Coe - Just like Alan Jackson's tune "Midnight in Montgomery" except Hank's ghost is more comfortable in a Cadillac.
I'll be playing 'em all this Saturday morning between 6 and 10 on 99.5 WKDQ COUNTRY CLASSICS
