Brain, 'Sea of Tranquility' - DSR , at first listen starts out sort of spooky sounding, as I recall first hearing it ! ?

"No Doubt About It" is spooky a little, it reminds me in a Folk version way of The Eagles "Witchy Woman" type of LYRICS, certainly not genre lol ! ?

'Haunted" by the Moody Blues. Not a GL song, but he might like it.

Sarah McLauchlan recorded "Song For A Winter's Night," on her Christmas Album. So I will say:

Song For A Winters Night...

Holiday: Christmas

That would certainly have people talking, some who never heard that song would probably ask; When did he write that ? What a great song. Wake up to the music Quebec, on the plains of Abraham !!!

"The Watchman's Gone" seems like a Halloween song to me.
