Theme Mix Saturday – A Grave Endeavor

October 13th, 2012

This list was birthed out of accidental inspiration– having Feist’s “Graveyard” pop up on shuffle just after hearing “Hollywood Forever Cemetery Sings”. It being October, and with the rain getting its first firm foothold in the Pacific Northwest this week, replete with the requisite malaise and the cold seeping into my bones even as I type this, I figured this was as good a time as any for this grim theme.
