Spooky Halloween Music: Sleepy Hollow

410W7VCTC2LThere is a lot of Halloween related music out there. Most CDs you will find in party stores will feature the usual ‘Monster Mash’ and the like. I’d like to introduce you to a different take on Halloween music. In this case, an instrumental movie score.

It’s hard to review music without the reader listening to it, so check out the video below for part of this score.

The score to Sleepy Hollow by Danny Elfman definitely stands out as one of my most inspirational pieces of music. It is both haunting and beautiful, inspiring and foreboding. There are pieces in this score that will truly send shivers down your spine. But most importantly, there are moments that, when you close your eyes, you can place yourself directly into a sleepy little town on Halloween. For me, no other piece of music comes close to creating images of Halloween in my mind. I hope it does the same for you.
Put this score on and truly listen to it. Best of all, it is all instrumental so it is safe for the entire family , if not a little spooky in some spots. But hey, that’s what Halloween is all about. Better yet, put this score on on Halloween night while the kids come trick or treating to your door.
Again, words cannot do it justice, so give it a listen below and then purchase it at Amazon.com
