So let me give a little background as to what I'm planning. I want to have a Halloween event (for 2007) for the goths that I KNOW are hiding in my area. I live in in eastern washington. Our dance troupe will do our Gothique show (gothic bellydance fusion) and then have an open dance floor. I need suggestions of albums/songs that you would hear in a good goth club. I've only been to the Mercury in Seattle once so my experience is sort of limited. And I want to have a variety as well(old-school goth, darkwave, industrial, deathrock, some EBM, etc.).

So I welcome all suggestions from those more experienced than myself, and if anyone's in eastern WA you're definitely invited to come!

Thanks

yes but we need lots of time to plan, buy the music (as i have a limited budget), find a venue, drum up interest, choreograph a few dances and rehearse, etc. etc.

Check the playlists on goth club websites to see what kind of things are usually played and are popular. Go to the gothmap site, click on different areas of the country, it doesn't really matter which and click on the links for the clubs and go to their websites and look at the playlists. Check places like London, West Yorkshire and North Yorkshire first as they have a lot of clubs that play a good mix of genres like you've asked for. Some clubs have their playlists on their main site pages while some have them in their forums in various sections.

Ah ok, well that makes sense. Well, here's my suggestion for a playlist if I were doing it. However since I don't listen to any EBM or Industrial, you might want to grab that off someone else. In no particular order, here's my contribution to your list:

45 Grave - Party Time
Murder At The Registry - The Creatures Are Having Fun With The Hollywood Dreamblaster
The Cure - Burn
The Cult - American Gothic
The Last Days Of Jesus - Fear, Gunshot...Then The Bliss
Cinema Strange - Greensward Grey
The Misfits - Astrozombies
Bauhaus - Dark Entries
The Deep Eynde - She Likes Skulls
Zombina And The Skeletones - Nobody Likes You
Bloody Dead And Sexy - Hey Ho Armageddon
Frank The Baptist - Queen Frostine
The Ramones - Pet Semetary
Tragic Black - Faith In Decay
Christian Death - Figurative Theatre
HorrorPops - Ghouls
Alien Sex Fiend - Now I'm Feeling Zombified
Siouxsie - Mirage
The Vanishing - Glass Is Falling
The Birthday Party - Release The Bats
Violet Stigmata - Cut The Flesh Wires
Astrovamps - Everyday Is Halloween
The Damned - Dr. Jekyl And Mr. Hyde
The Brickbats - 364 Nights To Go

A few quick suggestions before I head off to the pizza joint tonight:

Personal Jesus – Depeche Mode
Bloodletting (The Vampire Song) – Concrete Blonde
Bela Lugosi's Dead – Bauhaus (hey, SOMEONE had to suggest it!)
Voodoo Idol – The Cramps
Sheena's in a Goth Gang – The Cramps (again)
Brains! - Voltaire (You'll find he's no fav of many goths, but personally, I like this song's kitschy appeal. And what can I say? I'm a sucker for violins.)

-The Time Warp - Rocky Horror (yea, I know, crown me prince of the obvious)
- In Your Room - Depeche Mode
- Burn the Flames - Roky Erickson
- Lullaby/Charlotte Sometimes - The Cure
- vampires - Pet Shop Boys

- Juke Joint Jezebel - KMFDM
- Cemetery Girl - Penis Flytrap

but bear i mind I am running pretty far afield from your standard 'goth' setlist here.

Ah yes, the Cramps, how could I forget! I'll add their Surfin' Dead from the Return Of The Living Dead soundtrack. Not quite like their usual sound, but very cool.

And of course, The Time Warp by Charles Gray from the Rocky Horror Picture Show soundtrack. ^_^\m/

Thank you, everyone, for your great suggestions! The mood I'm going for is...err, goth. I don't really know how else to explain it. I want a good mix of tracks, mostly danceable, with some slow stuff in between for a break (like cocteau twins or something). also that would introduce people in my area to proper goth music, because I know we'll get in some misguided spookykids. Just need to nudge them in the right direction.

Thanks for the suggestions of looking at playlist, blkencht. I had just thought of that last night but wasn't sure where to start looking.

Well you did ask for a variety. :) Don't be afraid to throw in songs that aren't explicitly within the goth umbrella. If you think the goths attending your event will like it, throw it in. As long as everyone enjoys it, does it really matter if it has the 'g' label on it?

Seen some awesome songs listed already, so I'll just add a few more:

Voltaire- The Vampire Club
London After Midnight- Claire's Horrors
London After Midnight- Trick or Treat
Alien Sex Fiend- I Walk the Line
Virgin Prunes- Pagan Love Song
Virgin Prunes- Baby Turns Blue
Bauhaus- Of Lillies and Remains
The Birthday Party- Release the Bats
The Ghost of Lemora- The Ground Beneath Our Feet
Inkubus Sukkubus- Vampire Punk Rockers From Hell

I'm sure most things 45 Grave would go down well too, and you have to include The Time Warp! :b
