Weekly Focus: Songs About Halloween, Day Two

Ministry — “(Every Day Is) Halloween,” from the album Twelve Inch Singles (1987).

Note: I know this song was originally released as a single in 1984, but the earliest mention of it on an actual record is the aforementioned Twelve Inch Singles. And no, the track is not specifically about the day of Halloween… For many people, however, Halloween is a lifestyle, so it still fits the bill.
