I don't get in to Halloween at all. Actually, that's not true. I love Halloween. And nothing is better than great music and homemade costumes. For your entertainment, here's some of my favorite Halloween Costumes.
Like when I went as the Operation guy (honorable mention to my buddy, the Food Pyramid)
Or my wife and I as the Simon game.
My treehouse costume was maybe the reason I failed a test or two. Skipping class to make a Halloween costume? I feel like I turned out okay.
And my all-time favorite, the Claw arcade game. I wish I held on to this one since this year, my 8 month old is going as one of the 3-eyed aliens from Toy Story.
Back to the Music!
Everybody has different views on what's okay to play around kids and what isn't. So here's how this works. Below, you'll see all the songs on the playlist. If you click the song, you'll see the lyrics pop up. But not just lyrics. You'll also see questionable content is highlighted like this.
Questionable content is highlighted by word so you can read it for context. The spiciest words are highlighted in red. Medium words are highlighted in orange. And any word highlighted in yellow is either very mild or it's a word like "head" where it could be okay or absolutely not okay, depending on the context.
Spicy Lyrics is a tool I created on my iPhone/iPad to help me quickly see if songs are appropriate to play in the gym. I love it so much, I'm giving it away so you all can use it on your phones.
