Stereotyping You By Your Favorite Halloween Song
It’s Halloween on Thursday, and if you’re not having costume anxiety, then you’re probably having playlist anxiety. We can definitely helpwith the former, and as for the latter… well, there are always going to be debates. The best we can do is let you know exactly what you’re up against — so here we go with our patented Flavorwire Stereotyping Technique™, which is scientifically proven to let you know exactly what people’s favorite Halloweens songs say about them. As ever, our obligatory disclaimer: this is all in fun, so don’t get upset, and yes, our stereotype is there too. See if you can guess which one it is.
Blue Oyster Cult — ”Don’t Fear the Reaper”
Dudes who can recite many Saturday Night Live sketches — and the entire Rick James thing from Chapelle’s Show — verbatim.
Ray Parker Jr. — ”Ghostbusters”
Thirtysomethings who also get excited whenever there’s a screening ofThe Goonies.
Warren Zevon — “Werewolves of London”
Old dudes who lament the decline of the Village Voice.
Michael Jackson — “Thriller”
Eighties holdovers who will always remember MJ as that globe-bestriding megastar in the red jacket.
