Lucky for Some – EP’s 13 Favourite Songs for Friday the 13th


Do you suffer from Paraskevidekatriaphobia?  It seems the superstitious fear of Friday the 13th wasn’t known before Victorian times, but it’s certainly snowballed since then.

About the author

There’s a lot of music out there - good music. At Essentially Pop our remit is that we cover music that deserves to be heard, with a particular focus on independent artists. That doesn't mean we won't cover your old favourites - rather we hope to give you some new favourites as well.

We no longer accept unpaid PR agency work. We believe the creative arts have value, and this includes writing. As always, we will write about artists who contact us - or who we contact - for free - but we can no longer work free of charge for PR agencies. We work hard, we put in a lot of hours writing, and we ask that you respect that. Contact us for our very reasonable rates.
