We've got some great mixes in hand and on the way - where is yours?

About Today's Mix:

We're in the midst of a spontaneous vacation-induced break here at Addicted to Vinyl - apologies for the delay on this week's mix - I have been unexpectedly away from my normal internet connection!  Enjoy this mix, and we'll see ya with more updates sometime early next week!

Every time that a holiday comes around, I have the thought that I should get Mel to make a special holiday mix for the occasion.  And pretty much every holiday, with one exception, I forget and move on to other mixes!

With Halloween approaching, I got a Halloween gift in my mailbox that quickly identified itself as something I should share with all of you here!

Today's mix comes from the folks at Highly Rec'd - The Monthly Mixtape!   Each month, Highly Rec'd delivers an awesome new mix for your hungry ears, straight to your email!  Add your name to the Highly Rec'd mailing list here, and you too will start to receive awesome mixes on a monthly basis!  I've been meaning to feature one of their mixes here for a while, so here it is at last for your enjoyment!

Mix Notes:

Happy (not yet) Halloween everyone!

Every song should fit the theme in obvious subject matter, or at least in tone, and I tried to avoid too many camp and novelty songs (no disrespect to Ray Parker Jr., MC Hammer, or DJ Jazzy Jeff and the Fresh Prince), or straight up film scores (which could be a mix on its own). I believe I covered most of the themes associated with the holiday, but was unfortunately unable to find a song about dressing up as a slutty version of your occupation. Almost all of these songs are enjoyable on their own, at anytime of the year, but combined, form a Voltron of indestructible holiday spirit!

    Well, I'm here if you need me! I haven't been much motivated by recent music. Perhaps I need to develop a blog post about THAT.

    Be that as it may, if I DID do this Halloween mix, I would have had at least four of your songs listed on my own! How do you like them (poisonous) apples?!
