I'd say just to pick another song. The farther away you get from horror games with the original, the more freedom you have to work with.

As for your participation, it's up to you. Pick which one you'd want to do more.

As the foreseer of everything SPOOKY on this website, I volunteer to be a judge.

If there are a surplus of judges, I'll switch though.

I'd say that spooky is more "anything that fills the player with unease", some examples of this could be:

Or, if you want something a little more "epic"

Of course, all of these themes are from horror games, so you can't use them.

I'm going to add the following formatting section to the grading:

5) Formatting - make sure your piece has the following information: a title, a subtitle(including the original song title and the game it's from), the the composers name, and the arrangers name(either your NSM alias or real name). You get more points if you arrangement had other standard things such as measure numbers, dynamics, etc.(if it applies to your piece). This should be easy points.

How does this sound?

Sounds good! I'll need to see if I can get something preliminary to work before I commit to this.

Whatever definition of creepy we're going with, I'm doing the teehee kind.

I'm not placing any restrictions on "what kind of scary." Have at it.

I love the theme! It's kinda what Yoko Shimomura did with "Jingle Bells" in Mario & Luigi: Partners in Time.
Before signing up, I'd like to find a song first though :J

Only one question just in case, are multiple songs allowed like a little medley?

Nope. Only one song choice is allowed for this.
