Music: Songs fit for a King

Here's a curious little tidbit for horror fans. America's top one-man horror franchise empire, Stephen King, wrote up a list of his top 20 favorite songs. Its surprisingly heavy on the country stuff (mostly modern alt-country with a few '70s post-Nashville sound nods), but the list also includes some oddball choices like the Gothic Archies, LCD Soundsystem, and even the '80s hit "Wild Wild West" by the Escape Club. Go fig. Most songs link to audio or video.

So, 20 songs and all you had to do was read one little ol' blog entry. Not a bad way to start your weekend. Enjoy, amigos.
