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.
