Songs about black days, black nights, black moons, black suns, black planets, black lights, black hearts, black widows, black magic, black cats, black snakes, black veils, black outs and more. As Autumn falls upon us and the days become shorter and the nights longer, here is a selection of dark music for these dark times.
… Ah, I’d love to wear a rainbow every day
And tell the world that everything’s okay
But I’ll try to carry off a little darkness on my back
‘Til things are brighter, I’m the man in black
– Johnny Cash, Man in Black
