Mini Mixtape #6

To celebrate this weekend’s holiday, I thought I’d whip up some great Halloween tunes for you. Enjoy!

Michael Jackson – Thriller (1982)
There was no way this wouldn’t be on here. Let’s face it, this song’s global playcount spikes during October every year. A classic.

Queens of the Stone Age – Burn the Witch (2005)
Not the most conventional choice of a Halloween track, but a fitting one nonetheless. Especially with a music video like that. Queens mixes ZZ Top-blues with haunting vocals and killer lyrics.

Marilyn Manson – This is Halloween (2006)
Manson’s cover of this song from Disney’s “The Nightmare Before Christmas” is more than a little spookier than the original. But the original works just as well here if you want something a little more cartoony. Just avoid Panic!At The Disco’s version.

Rihanna – Disturbia (2007)
Probably the last song Rihanna did before she started annoying me. Not as creepy as some of the others on this list, but a good tune for the holiday anywho.

Enjoy!

    I don’t think there’s anything wrong with it on it’s own, it’s just…boring compared to the other versions. It kind of does the opposite of Manson’s version–where Manson makes it considerably scarier, Panic’s is sort of dulled down. It lacks that eerie creepy element.
