Tune in Tuesday

Tune in Tuesday is a weekly feature hosted by Ginger over at GReads! to help spread the word about the music we're listening to.

The theme for the month of October is Soundtrack Edition!

Since it's October and Halloween is just around the corner, I thought I would kick off the month with the 2008 - Nightmare Revisited - a cover album of songs from the 1993 film The Nightmare Before Christmas to commemorate the film's 15th anniversary. A lot of great artists took part for this one and I like listening to it even when it isn't Halloween. Nightmare Before Christmas is also one of my favorite movies.

Here are two of my faves......

Marilyn Manson: This is Halloween

Korn: Sandy Klaws
