HALLOWEEN SPECIAL: DOWN IN THE TUBE STATION AT MIDNIGHT


Yes the London Underground, that Bastion of London life. People going about their daily routine in an orderly Fashion. Everything remarkably civilised and jolly good mannered all round; except it's not. It's a place of horror, Dystopian nightmare, murder, danger and thorough unpleasantness, particularly on Halloween. MIND THE GAP!


‘The last thing that I saw

As I lay there on the floor
Was "Jesus Saves" painted by an atheist nutter
And a British Rail poster read "Have an Awayday - a cheap holiday -
Do it today!"
I glanced back on my life
And thought about my wife
'cause they took the keys and she'll think it's me
And I’m down in the tube station at Midnight’- Paul Weller 













Underground. Death Line. An American Werewolf in London. Creep. 28 Weeks Later. Quatermass and the pit. Lifeforce. Daleks invasion Earth. Reign of fire. V for Vendetta. 28 Days later.Thunderbirds: Operation Crash Dive

HALLOWEEN HITS: KATE BUSH-HAMMER HORROR



You stood in the belltower, 

But now you're gone. 
So who knows all the sights 
Of Notre Dame? 
They've got the stars for the gallant hearts. 
I'm the replacement for your part. 
But all I want to do is forget 
You, friend. 
Hammer Horror, Hammer Horror, 
Won't leave me alone. 
The first time in my life, 
I keep the lights on 
To ease my soul. 
Hammer Horror, Hammer Horror, 
Won't leave it alone. 
I don't know, 
Is this the right thing to do? 
Rehearsing in your things, 
I feel guilty. 
And retracing all the scenes, 
Of your big hit, 
Oh, God, you needed the leading role. 
It wasn't me who made you go, though. 
Now all I want to do is forget 
You, friend. 
Hammer Horror, Hammer Horror, 
Won't leave me alone. 
The first time in my life, 
I keep the lights on 
To ease my soul. 
Hammer Horror, Hammer Horror, 
Won't leave it alone. 
I don't know, 
Is this the right thing to do? 
Who calls me from the other side 
Of the street? 
And who taps me on the shoulder? 
I turn around, but you're gone. 
I've got a hunch that you're following, 
To get your own back on me. 
So all I want to do is forget 
You, friend. 
Hammer Horror, Hammer Horror, 
Won't leave me alone. 
The first time in my life, 
I keep the lights on 
To ease my soul. 
Hammer Horror, Hammer Horror, 
Won't leave it alone. 
I don't know, 
Is this the right thing to do?

Yeah ooh oh one thing I miss is cold Ethyl and her skeleton kiss
We met last night making love by the refrigerator light
Ethyl Ethyl let me squeeze you in my arms
Ethyl Ethyl come and freeze me with your charms
Ah one thing no lie Ethyl's frigid as an Eskimo pie
She's cool in bed she's gotta be 'cause Ethyl's dead

Come on cold Ethyl freeze me baby that's cool that's nice
One thing it's true cold Ethyl I am stuck on you
And everything is my way ethyl don't have much to say

Ethyl Ethyl come and freeze me with your charms
Come here cold Ethyl what makes you so cold ooh so cold ooh ooh

Cold Ethyl cold cold Ethyl cold Ethyl cold cold Ethyl
If I live 'til ninety seven you'll still be waiting in refrigerator heaven
'cause you're cool you're ice cold Ethyl you're my paradise aah

HALLOWEEN HITS:BAD MOON RISING-CREEDENCE CLEARWATER REVIVAL



I see the bad moon arising. 
I see trouble on the way. 
I see earthquakes and lightnin'. 
I see bad times today. 
Don't go around tonight, 
Well, it's bound to take your life, 
There's a bad moon on the rise. 
I hear hurricanes ablowing. 
I know the end is coming soon. 
I fear rivers over flowing. 
I hear the voice of rage and ruin. 
Don't go around tonight, 
Well, it's bound to take your life, 
There's a bad moon on the rise. 
All right! 
Hope you got your things together. 
Hope you are quite prepared to die. 
Looks like we're in for nasty weather. 
One eye is taken for an eye. 
Don't go around tonight, 
Well, it's bound to take your life, 
There's a bad moon on the rise. 
Don't go around tonight, 
Well, it's bound to take your life, 
There's a bad moon on the rise.
