That makes absolutely no sense.
The year after each of these Christmas albums were released, why didn't people forget them? They went into public consciousness from day 1? No.
People actively search for Xmas albums at Xmas - and shops/iTunes etc promote them each year. Same for Halloween albums and songs.
The animated film will be repeated each holiday season, and the Estate/Sony only has to put out some cheap reminders of the songs and album.
You think they are doing all this for one holiday season?
I think the one thing to consider is there is an alternative to the Scream album, which is the Thriller album. For people that are looking to buy some music for Halloween, are they going to buy Scream or Thriller? Will they even know what the Scream album is? My opinion is Thriller will continue to get the sales every Halloween.
