Welcome to My Nightmare ... on My Halloween Countdown
Going crazy in the night tonight. Stressed! Below, a favorite recent mix of Kim Carnes' "Crazy in the Night" that tosses in portions of Vincent Price's monolog from "Thriller." Vincent Price was a childhood idol of mine and my Mom took me to see his films, particularly Roger Corman's Edgar Allen Poe adaptations (since they were so "literary"). I was secretly enamored of the tall, erudite villain of my favorite horror films. Hearing his voice in this mix tonight brought back pleasant memories that actually helped qualm my anxieties & fears. Thanks, Mom!
