Dedicated to all the great lost and little-heard Halloween songs that get swept under the "Monster Mash" tide every October. Crawl out of that radio man's dungeon and listen!

Signs Point to 8
Today's song sounds exactly what I imagine being a werewolf feels like. Driving and visceral, listening to TV on the Radio's "Wolf Like Me" is like running through the woods under a full moon with the scent of blood lodged in your nose and brain. Formed in Brooklyn in 2001, TV on the Radio's music spans genres, taking equal influence from punk, electronic, and soul music. They've collaborated with a who's who of the rock and indie-rock world, such as David Bowie and members of Blonde Redhead and the Yeah Yeah Yeahs. Although one member died of lung cancer in 2011, the band continues to play shows, but has not announced plans for further recordings. Hopefully they will be with us for a long time to come. But for now, our hero awakes, a man not entirely himself...
