Horror Music? Well, you played Mariah Carey last week, so what about playing Evening of Light by Nico? Or what about that metal song you once played that sounded like a satanic mass and had a crying baby in there (alas, I don't remember the name of the song/artist)?

Ken,
There's a track called "Apocalipso" you used to play. Is one of the scariest ones ever. Although I don't think the artist intended the song to be scary but yet is quite unsettling and menacing. Does it sounds familiar? You played it more than 10 years ago, therefore you must remember it, right?

@Meatfucker: not sure if you mean that in a good way or a bad way? I really didn't care for Burton's Batman myself. The second one was great, but the first one was dire. And both Nicholson and Basinger sucked in their roles.

I meant it in the bad way. Burton never really impressed me much.

Jandek, I know it was supposed to be a parody, but I think Burton kept forgetting what he was supposed to be doing.
