#HauteSounds: Top 10 Halloween Songs Of All Time
In less than 10 days, creatures of all kinds are going to be seen in our neighbourhoods — vampires, zombies, witches, you name it and you will see it. Don’t be scared — there is no apocalypse, yet! We’re talking about the spooky, fun holiday of Halloween that is right around the corner. By now we have our costumes set, candies ready, and décor on point, but there is something missing. What is a party without some good music! And I’m not talking the Adam’s family creepy background track, but the songs that would awaken the inner monster in you, in a good way, of course. Tracks that will help you groove and dance all night long.
Here are the top 10 spooky songs of all times that will make your Halloween bash an instant hit!
1. Thriller – Michael Jackson
There is yet a song to be created that can compete with this classic by the king himself, Michael Jackson. It’s been in our lives for 25 years now, and we aren’t complaining! The most downloaded Halloween song of all time, any party is incomplete without it.
2. Ghostbusters – Ray Parker Jr.
This cheesy song, from the movie of the same name, is an acquired taste, but eventually, you *will* get addicted. Especially the random outbursts of GHOSTBUSTERS!
3. Highway To Hell – AC/DC
The song that made AC/DC the maestros of rock is as catchy as any song can get! Another classic that is a party changer.
4. This Is Halloween – Marilyn Manson
The title is enough for this song to be on your playlist!
5. Supernature – Cerrone
French music icon, Marc Cerrone, created this song as an expression of a distant mutant sci-fi future. Scary back in the ’70s, this song still has the potential to creep you out!
6. Somebody’s Watching Me – Rockwell
Rockwell’s song is nothing short of a horror movie made into a video. While you tap your feet to its tunes, make sure to check your closet for any unwanted monsters!
7. Vampires – DJ Touche
If there is one guy who knows his horror, it is Theo Keating. From his 20 other tracks full of zombies and werewolves, vampires seemed the most attractive!
8. People Are Strange – Echo & The Bunnymen
With dramatic pauses, spooky piano moments, and an epic ending, this title track of the The Last Boys (a must-watch Halloween movie), had to be on our Halloween song list.
9. Monster – Kanye West
In 2010, Kanye West came out with this trippy song that had the likes of Jay Z, Nicki Minaj, Rick Ross, and Bon Iver lending their voice to it. Its funky rhymes will make you groove a bit longer than you could imagine!
10. Red Right hand – Nick Cave and the bad seeds
We can curate a separate list based on just Nick Cave’s Halloween songs, but for now, we’ll give you his creepiest work! The drum rolls and sinister lyrics will inspire you to show off your deadliest moves on the dance floor.
