Best Halloween Songs

This is probably the only day of the year when any of these songs are even remotely interesting to listen to.

OK, some of you probably have Halloween playlists already, but here’s a few gems to get the discussion rolling:

Nick Cave – Red Right Hand

The Time Warp!

The Misfits – Hybrid Moments

The Monster Mash

and of course this gem.

  1. “Dead Man’s Party” by Oingo Bongo.

    “Bela Lugosi’s Dead” by Bauhaus for all the old skool goths.

    “Camouflage” by Stan Ridgeway is a great ghost story.

    “They Are Night Zombies!! They Are Neighbors!! They Have Come Back from the Dead!! Ahhhh!” by Sufjan Stevens (although, truthfully, “John Wayne Gacy” is much more frightening).

    “Country Death Song” by the Violent Femmes for a nice folk-inspired tale of evil.

    “Werewolves of London” by Warren Zevon (at least as cliche as Monster Mash, but a good song anyway).

  2. How could you forget the zombie song?

    Of course most of the songs mentioned are “fun” songs.

    The really creepy ones are freaky. Like Rammstein’s Heirate Mich. (Which has creeped me out ever since I saw Lost Highway)

  3. Awwww….Greg! I HATE that Camouflage song! Every time I manage to get it out of my head, one of the radio stations here will play it (further cementing my utter hatred of and preferred non-listening to any radio)

    Wow, what a strage complaint. I haven’t heard that song in years, let alone on the radio.

  5. I’ve had Oingo Boingo in my head all day. Now I’ve got Camouflage stuck…
    The Ramones have a lot of Halloween-ish songs (e.g., Pet Cemetery, Teenage Lobotomy)

  6. Hey! just heard this song ‘EVERY DAY IS HALLOWEEN” by BOO! (feat. Vince DiCola and Robbie Long)….this is THE MOST whacked intensely monster Halloween song I’ve ever heard. Check this out! Also, if I’m not mistaken, isn’t Vince DiCola the composer on the first Transformer movie (not the new one)?
