Boo! A Spooky Soundtrack for Halloween!

It’s October, and with the arrival, and now, near end, of the spooky month, there must be a playlist so you can jam out to some of the creepiest songs out there.

Thriller-Michael Jackson

Pretty much everyone knows this one. Michael Jackson turns into a zombie, turns back, and the twist is, he never actually turned back.

Monster Mash-Bobby (Boris) Pickett

Everybody knows this one. You know, the one with the “graveyard smash”

This is Halloween-Danny Elfman

A classic song from the opening of “The Nightmare before Christmas, this song will make a wave of nostalgia wash over you, bringing you back to the first time that you saw this movie.

Spooky Scary Skeletons- Most people have heard of ‘that one skeleton video with the pumpkin guy dancing.” Or at least heard somebody talk about it before. If you haven’t, you live under a rock.

Ghostbuster Theme-Ray Parker Jr.

Same as “This is Halloween” this will also wash a wave of nostalgia over you. Who are you gonna call?

Werewolves of London-Warren Zevon

It has that iconic “Aooooooooo” howl in the chorus. What more could you ask for in a Halloween song?

A Nightmare on My Street-DJ Jazzy Jeff and The Fresh Prince

In this tune, WIll Smith meets a guy named “Fred” (I think we all know who he’s talking about). Who could ask for any more?

Don’t Fear The Reaper-Blue Oyster Cult

Opening with a catchy guitar part, this 1976 song, you’ll be hooked everytime you hear the line “Don’t fear the Reaper”.

It’s Almost Halloween-Panic! At The Disco

With frontman Brendon Urie encouraging us to “do the trick or treat” in the chorus, you’ll either cringe at or love this song.

The Ghosts of Beverly Drive- Death Cab for Cutie

With pretty good vocals, this catchy tune is pretty good for anyone looking to find a laid back, but ghost-themed tune.

Somebody's Watching Me- Rockwell

If you loved “Thriller”, then you’ll love this. With a Psycho reference in one of the verses, and Michael Jackson in the chorus, this is a must-have for all Halloween playlists.
