Music from the 1930s-1950s often has a haunting quality about it. It may speak to something about the era. The world on the brink of war, then in the midst of war and then locked in a cold war. Death and destruction lurking in the shadows, occasionally making itself known.
Here are a select few of those haunting songs.They'd be great for a Halloween party.
"Miss Otis Regrets" - Ethel Waters
"Nightmare" - Artie Shaw
"It's All over But the Crying" - The Inkspots
