What are you planning to be for Halloween this year? Costumes go fast so if you haven't bought or made yours yet, better hop to it! While you are trying on costumes or getting ready for your Halloween party or if you're just in the mood for something a little eerie and different, watch these slightly creepy and a bit bizarre music videos!
First, we have an Original song by talented Canadian teen girl singer, Hayley Richman. This 15 year old has been on YouTube for 3 years and has done a great job with many cover songs, including 3 with over 100 Thousand views! She also has originals that you can find on iTunes. This original, Marionette, starts off with screechy old dial up modem sounds but then goes into a slightly scary melody that reminds one of "I Put A Spell On You" by Credence Clearwater Revival and others, crossed with some old Torch Song. The video is made to look vintage and is shot in black and white. The props are odd, but the song is hauntingly beautiful - check it out!
Would you believe that there is another original song by a teen girl on YouTube that is also called Marionette? It's true! This one is by Anna-Christin Berger Eskeland who is about 16 and from Norway. Anna has been on YouTube for 2 years and has just 2 videos. You can read more about her, if you can read Norwegian, here. Also here is some info about, and music from her excellent Rock band, 4Adamas. This song, Marionette, has a strong overdriven guitar part and the video is much more colorful but still a bit eerie. Check out this song and video!
We end with Irish Indian singer songwriter Sarah Packiam, who is out with a new EP called Dream. This song is "I Loved You First" and the video features Sarah having various encounters with a hunk of raw meat, all while wearing a mostly unbuttoned white shirt and black bra and panties! The song is a bit melancholy, with a medium tempo guitar track and Sarah's strong singing varying between sultry and angry. Enjoy the song and try to figure out the video, including the scene seen in the thumbnail where Sarah bathes with her side of beef!
Happy Halloween !
