Top 20 Halloween Songs

Ah, All Hallows’ Eve is again upon us and I’ve got witches, ghosts, zombies, ghouls, monsters, werewolves, things that go bump in the night, and a couple of really scary tunes to celebrate… These are my top 20 songs for Halloween

  1. Marilyn Manson - This is Halloween

This is Halloween, this is Halloween / Pumpkins scream in the dead of night / This is Halloween, everybody make a scene / Trick or treat till the neighbors gonna die of fright / It's our town, everybody scream / In this town of Halloween

  1. Michael Jackson – Thriller

Darkness falls across the land / The midnight hour is close at hand / Creatures crawl in search of blood / To terrorize yawls neighborhood / And whosoever shall be found / Without the soul for getting down / Must stand and face the hounds of hell / And rot inside a corpses shell / The foulest stench is in the air / The funk of forty thousand years / And grizzy ghouls from every tomb / Are closing in to seal your doom / And though you fight to stay alive / Your body starts to shiver
For no mere mortal can resist / The evil of the thriller

  1. Boris Pickett - The Monster Mash

Out from his coffin, Drac's voice did ring / Seems he was troubled by just one thing / He opened the lid and shook his fist / And said, "Whatever happened to my Transylvania twist?" / It's now the mash / It's now the monster mash / The monster mash / And it's a graveyard smash

  1. Misfits – Halloween

Bonfires burning bright pumpkin faces in the night / I remember Halloween / dead cats hanging from poles / little dead are out in droves / I remember Halloween / Brown leaved vertigo where skeletal life is known / I remember Halloween / this day anything goes / burning bodies hanging from poles / I remember / Halloween, Halloween, Halloween, Halloween, Halloween / Candy apples and razor blades / little dead are soon in graves / I remember Halloween

  1. Fairport Convention – Tam Lin

And at the end of seven years she pays a tithe to hell / I so fair and full of flesh and feared it be myself / But tonight is Hallowe'en and the faery folk ride / Those that would their true love win at Miles Cross they must buy

  1. Carl Off – O Fortuna

  1. Mike Oldfield – Tubular Bells (Theme from “The Exorcist”)

  1. Ozzy Osbourne – Bark at the Moon

Howling in shadows / Living in a lunar spell / He finds his heaven / Spewing from the mouth of hell / And when he finds who he’s looking for / Listen in awe and you’ll hear him / Bark at the moon.

  1. Charlie Daniels Band – The Legend of Wooley Swamp

And that's been fifty years ago / And you can go by there yet. / There's a spot in the yard / In the back of that shack / Where the ground is always wet. / And on summer nights / If the moon is right / Down by the that dark footpath, / You can hear three young men screaming./ You can hear one old man laugh.

  1. Alice Cooper – Welcome to my Nightmare

Welcome to my nightmare / Welcome to my breakdown / I hope I didn't scare you / That's just the way we are when we come down / We sweat and laugh and scream here / 'cuz life is just a dream here / You know inside you feel right at home here

  1. La Union – Lobo Hombre en Paris

Cada noche llaman desde París / en el día en que todo ocurrió / Como un sueño de locos sin fin / La fortuna se ha reído de ti / Sorprendido espiando / el lobo escapa aullando y es mordido por el mago del Siam / La luna llena sobre París / ha transformado en hombre a Denis

  1. Warren Zevon – Warewolves of London

Ya hear him howlin around your kitchen door / ya better not let him in / Little old lady got mutilated late last night / werewolves of London again.

  1. Edgar Winter Group – Frankenstein

  1. The Alan Parsons Project – The Raven

And still the raven remains in my room / No matter how much I implore / No words can soothe him / No prayer remove him / And I must hear for evermore / Quote the raven, nevermore / Thus quote the raven / Nevermore

  1. Squirrel Nut Zippers – Hell

This is a place where eternally / Fire is applied to the body / Teeth are extruded and bones are ground / Then baked into cakes which are passed around.

  1. Johnny Cash – Ghost Riders in the Sky

As the riders loped on by him he heard one call his name / If you want to save your soul from Hell a-riding on our range / Then cowboy change your ways today or with us you will ride / Trying to catch the Devil's herd, across these endless skies

  1. Donovan – Season of the Witch

When I looked over my shoulder / What do you think I see / Summer cat looking over / It shoulder at me / Any strange, sure is strange / You got to pick out every stitch / Beat me its eye to make it rich oh no / Must be the season of the witch

  1. Ray Parker Jr – Ghostbusters

If there's something strange in your neighborhood / Who ya gonna call? / Ghostbusters / If it's something weird an it won't look good / Who ya gonna call? / Ghostbusters / I ain't afraid a no ghost / I ain't afraid a no ghost

  1. DJ Jazzy Jeef & Fresh Prince – Nightmare on my Street

Now I have a story that Id like to tell / About this guy you all know he had me scared as hell / He comes to me at night after I crawl into bed / He’s burnt up like a weenie and his name is Fred / He wears the same hat and sweater every single day / And even if it’s hot outside he wears it anyway / He’s home when I’m awake but he shows up when I sleep / I can’t believe that there’s a nightmare on my street

  1. Theme from the “Addam’s Family”

They're creepy and they're kooky / Mysterious and spooky / They're all together ooky / The Addams Family.
