And since Halloween is today, I will definitely not be taking it off repeat for the next 24 or so hours.
Morgan Wadereleased a song called “Halloween” last week, which is a hauntingly beautiful ballad about how the ghost of her ex (and the memories they shared) still follows her around.
After putting out her sophomore studio album Psychopath in August, I never thought we’d be getting more new music from her so soon, but it’s a stunning song with a beautiful piano arrangement that once again shows off her incredible vocals.
Written by Morgan and Clint Wells, the lyrics gave me chills, with Morgan pretty much pouring her heart out about the disappointment in losing a once-in-a-lifetime love:
“I knew I loved you that Halloween When I saw you and I got mad You came in with someone that wasn’t me And I’ve never felt pain that bad So I cried in my car at the liquor store And I almost relapsed
We were friends but I wanted more I was hoping you wanted me back And you met me for coffee at my favorite place Right by the railroad tracks You touched my hand and you felt insane Our hearts didn’t cut us no slack You never get over a love like that”
After being out for less than two weeks, I can confidently say this is already one of my favorite songs she’s ever released, and also, probably the best “Halloween” song I’ve ever heard (even though it’s not really about Halloween at all, but you get the point).
And today, with it being Halloween and all, she released a gorgeous live acoustic performance video of the song that is well worth your time to check out.
I personally believe hearing Morgan with just a simple, acoustic guitar and sparse backing production is absolute perfection, and in this case, isn’t all that far off rom the original.
