There are tons of different songs that have been released
that are perfect for getting into the Halloween spirit with, whether they are
named after something spooky or they have Halloween themes within the song and
of course if the music video includes a Halloween theme. (You can already see
what song is coming up.)
Many of these songs you may have heard of before or just
remember but unfortunately forgot the name of the song or who it was made by?
Well we will link a YouTube video with each song so that you can give it a
We couldn’t list this song any quicker onto this list,
Michael Jackson’s Thriller to be exact is a 13 minute long music video! The
song was released on Michael Jackson’s sixth album which was named after the
popular song. We don’t even think you could forget this as a Halloween song
especially as it is voted for Top 10 Halloween songs by almost everyone.
The Music video revolves around a Teenage Michael and his
girlfriend watching a movie together which scares his girlfriend and they both
exit the cinema. Then when they pass a foggy graveyard the dead begin to rise
and corner the two main characters before suddenly Michael becomes a zombies
and forces his date to run for cover before reverting back into a human and
doing the dance number to Thriller. This movie like music video actually won
various awards including being chosen for various movie awards making it the
first music video to do this.
This is another song we couldn’t leave off the list,
especially with the new film coming out relatively soon! The Ghostbusters song
has such a catchy tune and always gets people singing along even if it is just
for the line “Bustin’ makes me feel good!”
This song is so popular that it was used in the films, the
cartoon series the games throughout the ages going back to the Commodore 64 up
to the PS3! The song was also in 3 different music games including Lego Rock
Band, Beatmania IIDX 14 and even in Just Dance 2014. The video is about a girl
who has paranormal activites happening in her house while various people are
calling for “Ghostbusters”!
I Put a Spell On You
Is it cheating putting a remix onto the list? Probably but
we can’t leave this spooky remix of Screamin’ Jay Hawkins song “I Put a Spell on
You.” It has been known to be one of his greatest songs and for it to get a
spookier remix for the Halloween it will defiantly get people asking what this
song is! It’s jazzy, it’s funky and it’s awesome!
The screams towards the end really improve the songs creepy
and Halloween theme and Mr. Jay Hawkins got the nickname Screamin’ because of
this song, he thought that he could destroy any song by screaming it to death
but with other music genres like death metal around these days we can definitely
see that it is impossible to scream a song to death.
A song name with more meanings than one, is it a ghost? A monster?
THE PRESS? Who knows? What we do know however is that this is one catchy song
and a great Halloween song to add to the playlist the song was his first single
and reached massive heights on the charts in the years following its release in
The music video alongside the music has a very Thriller-esc
style to it, this is because Kennedy William Gordy or Rockwell as he was better
known as had his childhood friend Michael Jackson assist him in creating this
We’re not sure this could be a Halloween song as the actual
story behind the song is about unemployment but the spooky sounding instruments
alongside the lyrics and title of the song gives the illusion or mask if you will
of a Halloween song.
The song was released in 1981 which was in the middle of the
UK’s riots about recession and has a very dark and serious reason to have been
created however it is the hums and the childish “laa” sounds make it a creepy
sounding song giving it the feeling of a Halloween song!
