OAK HALLOWEEN ANTHEM: KYLIE MINOGUE AND NICK CAVE AND THE BAD SEEDS “WHERE THE WILD ROSES GROW”

“Thriller” by Michael Jackson, “Ghouls Night Out” by Misfits, and even “Monster” by Kanye have all become Halloween go-tos by now, but our ultimate favorite song for this holiday is the haunting duet between Kylie Minogue and Nick Cave on “Where the Wild Roses Grow.” While they may seem like an unlikely pairing (and fucking brilliant Halloween costumes if you’re still looking), the two have actually been close since the 1980s, and this track has kept the Halloween spirit alive since 1996. The song – and pretty rad music video – is from The Bad Seeds’ record Murder Ballads, which seems appropriate to give a once-through today if you get a chance. Happy Halloween!
