Suggestions for music to cook to in October include anything from the album, Vamps et Vampire – the songs of Serge Gainsbourg.  Then there is Danse Macabre by Saint-Saens (see bottom video clip for a lovely performance by Clara Cernet and Thierry Huillet). You could also listen to anything by  Boris Kovač  – Ballads from the End of Time  for example includes a very Halloween sounding wolf – and Tango Apocalypso is pretty, well, apocalyptic…see below. For something mellow, you could try James Taylor’s October Road.  For something outright gorgeous, thick, rich, earthy…. listen to Marianne Faithfull’s Witches’ Song.
