OK, so I'm a bit late with this as Halloween was a couple of weeks ago, but you can safely play Kirsty MacColl's song of that name all year round. "Halloween" is one of the many perfect songs on her perfect third album, 1991's brilliantly titled Electric Landlady, co-written with Mark E. Nevin who used to be in Fairground Attraction with Eddi Reader. The melody is to die for and the arrangement is fantastic and actually quite original, fusing different genres into a surprising whole. Here are Latin horns and rhythms blended with a lonely Gallic fiddle, rockabilly-style guitar licks and some serious pop hooks. Awesome!
