Empire Records came up in conversation yesterday which made me think of the soundtrack which in turn led me down 90s nostalgia lane. The opening riff of Gin Blossoms’ "Till I Hear It From You" is so epic.

With three hours of Halloween left here on the East Coast, I wanted to put up a track that always reminds me of the holiday so here’s "Zombies" by The Cranberries. Dolores O’Riordan’s haunting vocals and Noel Hogan’s distorted guitar riffs make a perfect backing track for any Hallow’s Eve festivities you might have going on.
