My Music to Murder by (responding to a challenge).

I have been tagged in this challenge by Teresa, The Haunted Wordsmith

This fun and macabre challenge was created by another pal, That Guy Called Bloke

M.M.H.B Challenge – Mystery – Music to Murder By!

The rules are:

  • Select 9 pieces of Music that you could Murder by.
  • Include a pingback to the original post
  • Tag three people to continue the challenge and thank the person who nominated you.
  • Simple, Fun and particularly gruesome! I Love It!

So my Number one is:

The Monster Mash by Bobby Pickett.


Number two is Michael Jacksons, Thriller.


Number three is Dies Irae (Day of Judgement) by Verdi.

Number Four is O Fortuna from Carmina Burana by Carl Orff.

Number Five is Toccata and Fugue in D Minor by Bach

Number six is Blondie – One way or another.

Number seven is Martha Reeves and the Vandella’s – Nowhere to Run


Number Eight – Sabre Dance by Khachaturian, it’s got a great rhythm.

Finally, my Number 9 song is The Sun will Come Out Tomorrow by Annie.

Maybe not an obvious choice, but have a look at this scene from the film Serial Mom and you’ll see Kathleen Turner putting this song to good use. 🙂


And my three nominees are:

Crushed Caramel

Kristian at Life Lesson from Around the Dinner Table

and Ang4Him at Journey to Imperfection, if you feel like it.


Hope you are all having a great Saturday. 🙂

People are far too complicated to be able to describe in a few words so I am not even going to try.

  1. Fricking awesome selection my friend, some absolute stonker clonkers in there for the Top 50 Halloween line up – number four just spoke volumes to me 🙂

  2. I’m choosing to opt out of this one but I LOVE your post. Actually many of my choices if I was to do this would have been the same as yours – so that would make it a bit boring. Definitely Thriller was the first one to come to mind for me. And I loved your Over the Rainbow for #9.

    The one that comes to mind that you don’t have listed is one that I first heard in High School when we did put on a lip sync. It is a 1966 novelty song – “They’re Coming to Take Me Away, Ha-Haaa!” – have you heard it? The guy who did the lip sync did such an amazing job I still always think of this song and it has been over 25 years. It would definitely be on my list.
