Halloween Mixtape: Country Killers

We all know there's a lot of fighting, drinking, and heartache in country music, but there's also a whole lot of murder and devilish doings. So, I've compiled a collection of troubled songs in the country & blues vein. Why not round out your Halloween party playlist with some unexpected gems?

1. Speak of the Devil, Chris Isaak
2. Can't Hardly Stand It, Charlie Feathers
3. Some Velvet Morning, Nancy Sinatra & Lee Hazlewood
4. I Am Just A Ghost, The Dutchess & The Duke
5. Things That Scare Me, Neko Case
6. The Man Comes Around, Johnny Cash
7. Pirate Jenny, Nina Simone
8. Red Rocking Chair, Black Prairie
9. Moanin' at Midnight, Howlin' Wolf
10. Dead Man, M. Ward
11. Evil (Is Going On), Jace Everett
12. Lake of Fire, Nirvana
13. Ghost Riders in the Sky, Marty Robbins
14. St. James Infirmary, Snooks Eaglin
15. Devil's in the Jukebox, Ray LaMontagne & The Pariah Dogs

Need more Halloween music? You might also like Creepy Sleepies, The Night is Dark & Deep, Vintage Villains, Instrumental Ills, or Old School Ghouls. Do you have any suggestions? Please, do tell. I'm always looking to expand my collection...
