Ghouls and ghosts, spooky monsters and zombies. It’s the time of the year when The X Factor wheel out Fright Night, and we’re sure to see Thriller performed by one of the acts.
The October tradition will see children trick or treating, whilst many party on with garish costumes!
But what are the songs you need on your Halloween playlist to get the party popping? Well, have no fear. We’ve got your ultimate song list sorted!
Celebrate the year’s spookiest holiday with these best Halloween songs, from creepy classics to essential earworms. Check it out:
5. The Rocky Horror Picture Show, “Time Warp”
This is a classic hit from The Rocky Horror Picture Show.
This spooky song is great to get party goers dancing. With a jump to the left plus a step to the right, you can thank Richard O’ Brien for cooking up the movie’s party-favourite “Time Warp” dance.
It HAS to be on any playlist!
4. Ray Parker Jr, Ghostbusters
‘Who ya gonna call?’ is the big question every Halloween, and “Ghostbusters” is the answer.
It’s a true hit, and the remake of the famous film has made the song even more popular with younger audiences. Yes, you’re going to hear it everywhere… but it is a classic!
3. Monster Mash – Bobby ‘Boris’ Pickett & the Crypt-Kickers
Another classic! The “Monster Mash” was on the Billboard Hot 100 chart on October 20–27 in 1962, and has been a hit ever since.
It’s weird to think it was released as a real track… It just seems to spooky!
2. The Fifth Estate, Ding Dong! The Witch Is Dead
A bubblegum-pop revival of aWizard of Oz hit. This song has been used for some many reasons. Some political, some funny. But never forget the dark side of the film. “Transported to a surreal landscape, a young girl kills the first person she meets and then teams up with three strangers to kill again.”
1. Michael Jackson, Thriller
There is no question, this is one of the best music videos of all time. Thriller is a creepy video which showcases the very best of Halloween!
The most-downloaded Halloween track of all-time should be a staple on your scary hits list. That moment when the King of Pop’s eyes turn zombie green at the end will go down in history!
So there you have it. If that hasn’t done enough to get you in the Halloween mood, we’ve also heard about spooky goings on at Lucky Voice in London.
The Soho and Islington Bars will be embracing an spooky theme, being transformed into the most frighteningly location!
The usual party props of brightly coloured wigs and fun specs will be taking a more sinister turn with bloody limbs, fake blood, gore and more.
The obviously treats will be on the list of tracks too, with Thriller, Ghostbusters, Phantom of the Opera, Monster Mash, Ghost Town, Bat Out of Hell, Highway to Hell, Creep, I Put a Spell on You, Rocky Horror Picture and more will be on offer for a singalong.
