Friday the 13th: A Playlist for Jason Voorhees

Amazingly, today is the first of three Friday the 13ths to happen in the next 13 weeks!

Mythology and spirituality aside, this date immediately brings me to the movies. And, I'm not talking about the recent retreads or even the last few movies in the original series. We're talking the early days when a boy drowned in Crystal Lake because his counselors weren't paying attention. We're talking Mrs. Vorhees and her hockey-masked son seeking revenge. We're talking guts and gore in the wilderness. Ah... good times.

So, in honor of this momentous 13 week stretch, let's consider what Jason might be listening to while on his murder spree--assuming he had an iPod underneath that hockey mask...

1. Crazy Train, Ozzy Osbourne - Just a little something to get him pumped up for the long night of stalking.

2. Creep, Radiohead - It's who you are, Jason. Own it.

3. Eye of the Tiger, Survivor - A reminder to stay focused on the task at hand.

4. Sunday Bloody Sunday, U2 - er, Friday Bloody Friday.

5. Don't Fear the Reaper, Blue Oyster Cult - Now it's time to get those kids.

6. Thriller, Michael Jackson - Something evil is certainly lurking in the dark.

7. Welcome to the Jungle, Guns n' Roses - He wants to hear them scream.

8. If You Want Blood (You Got It), AC/DC - And, there will be blood. Plenty of it.

9. Fade to Black, Metallica - "Life it seems will fade away" for the victims.

10. Same Old Song & Dance, Aerosmith - Time to kill a few more people.

11. Final Countdown, Europe - Almost time for someone to face-off with Jason...and take him down.

12. Comfortably Numb, Pink Floyd - There is no pain. You are receding. Good bye, Jason.

13. You're the Best, Joe Esposito - Sure, it's the Karate Kid theme... but, it's a good reminder that he may get knocked down at the end of each movie, but nothing's gonna ever keep him down.

What do you think? What song would you suggest for Jason? Leave a comment below. Best suggestion wins a copy of How to Survive a Horror Movie.

Limp bizkit - break stuff (nice beat for killing) Tingogsager@hotmail.com

No love for "Natural Born Killaz" by Dr. Dre and Ice Cube?! Also, in light of the other selections, I'm surprised that "Psycho Killer" by The Talking Heads didn't make the cut.

When You're Evil, Voltaire.... need I say more? :D

great list. I love friday the 13th (the day(s)) and the movie(s)if i were to add a song to the list. i would add i'm so sick - flyleaf. it's a great rock/metal song with a chick who can scream her head off. and the lyrics fit right in.

I agree...the originals are the best....and i love the playlist!!!

Highway to Hell, AC/DC

No highway to hell? Haha, otherwise this seems to articulate a rather gruesome experience and i'm so into that.

How about "All by Myself" by Eric Carmen- that's for when he's feeling a little down about his "situation". :-( Also, there is the Celine Dion version- I think we can all relate to the muderous rage that could well induce!! I quite often feel like killing someone too whenever I hear her strangulated screeching! :-P

Hmmm... well there's "Dirty Deeds Done Dirt Cheap" by AC/DC "Natural Born Killer" by Avenged Sevenfold "Ain't No Rest for the Wicked" Cage the Elephant
