Because I know there have been fanmixes and vids in the past, but there can never be too much Eerie music...

1. What song(s) would you put on an Eerie, Indiana playlist? (Whether time-period appropriate or otherwise.)

2. Are there any songs you associate with particular pairings in the fandom?

1: This is an awesome topic for discussion

2: Radio Weird: Songs of Eerie is the perfect album name for an Eerie compilation CD

3: I absolutely cannot pass up this opportunity to pimp some of the awesome fanworks we've had from the musical-minded members of the Eerie, Indiana fandom!

eviinsanemonkey's filk about Stabbity Steve:



eviinsanemonkey's filk about Mister Chaney and Mayor Chisel, "After Wolf Mountain"




"Black Cow", eviinsanemonkey's advertising jingle for the World o' Stuff's ice cream counter




And eviinsanemonkey's Pay Attention filk:

I also really want to share Owen Neil's hilarious musical short, "Bigfoot Stole My Mail", which I still totally maintain is straight up Eerie community theatre

For me, the very first song that popped into my head when I read this post was Seanan Maguire's "Wicked Girls", from the album of the same name. It's my go-to Sara Sue song; whenever I hear it, I think about her:

A lot of the music I listen to comes from TV shows and movies that I watch. There are a few that, as well as reminding me of the original context I heard them in, also strike me as very Eerie, Indiana-esque.

In particular, there are a couple of instrumental pieces from the 1990s Moomin TV show that always make me think of Eerie:

The Lady of the Cold, it gives me that same creepy isolated feeling of being all alone in a place that should be full of people that I get from seeing Mars in his deserted neighbourhood in the Lost Hour



I don't know what the English name of this piece is, but it's basically the piece that will play whenever the show did a panning shot of somewhere outside of Moominvalley that was mysterious or spooky or dangerous in some way



And of course, the motherfucking Groke's theme song

I can't find it on YouTube but there's also a piece that plays in the episode where Moominpappa runs away from the orphanage where he was raised and he's so frightened that he envisions the trees reaching out to grab him and the ground rising to form hundreds of Grokes chasing him - it's really atmospheric and really captures that delicious thrill when you let your imagination run away with you and get really, really scared. Sometimes I play that when I'm out for a walk at night and let myself get good and spooked.

If Eerie had a country song. I think Eerie is stealing this song from another WIP, because I've started playing it a lot, especially when contemplating Chisel.

"This is an ordinary town and we crucify our own..."

Probably my current Dash/Mars playlist. Some of these make more literal sense than others.
