I love Halloween. That could in part be because October 31st isn’t just Halloween – it is also my birthday. It is a great time to celebrate! And what better way to celebrate Halloween at Musical Pairings than with a few covers by the Arcade Fire (after all a cover is like the musical equivalent of dressing up in costume)? There are a number of other covers out there, but the quality of the recordings are not great so I’m not going to post them here. But if you have one that is pretty good – share the link in the comments section!
