Halloween Tunes!

Happy Halloween everyone!

For today, I thought I would share 5 awesome songs for Halloween.  These are some tunes I love to listen to because of how scary or moody they may be.  You may find that they are great songs to play in the background of your Halloween party.  They are in no particular order.  There are some songs that are givens like Thriller by Michael Jackson or the Ghostbusters Theme that does not show up on this list.  Of course I'm not going to put those classic hits here.  They're classics!  These are tunes that may not immediately be thought of but are pretty much perfect for Halloween.  So, here we go...

5 -- Disturbia (Radio Edit) Rhianna

This song was really popular a few years ago.  I really like it because the song in and of itself is written to just sound disturbing.  The music video does some really cool stuff to fit the scary vibe too.  (Though I won't share it here because of some immodest dress.)  The irony is that most people don't even think of this song when making their Halloween playlist but I think it's essential.  It's scary and got a great beat.

4 -- No One Believes Me Kid Cudi

Kid Cudi performed this for the Fright Night remake that came out a year or two ago.  This one has a steady beat and feeling of impending doom.  Kid Cudi does a great job with brooding type of music as seen in the Hunger Games soundtrack.


3 -- Came Back Haunted Nine Inch Nails

This is a newer song that kinda has the same feeling as Kid Cudi's.  Trent Reznor of the Nine Inch Nails is probably one of my favorite musicians.  He can create really atmospheric songs that also really connect with the listener.  I love his cover of Immigrant Song that he did with Karen O for the Girl with the Dragon Tattoo movie.

2 -- This is Halloween Marylin Manson

That's right.  Disney got Marilyn Manson of all people to cover the famous song from the Nightmare Before Christmas.  But really, could they have gotten anyone better for this?  Manson has done a ton of questionable and offensive material so it may seem weird that family friendly Disney would let something like this fly by.  For me, I actually think it's great when an artist is encouraged to do something a bit more wholesome.  Anyway, Manson's cover is just so grungy and devilish I can't not include it in my Halloween playlist.

1 -- Do the Hippogriff The Weird Sister

The Weird Sisters are a hit band from the Wizarding World.  They actually even performed at the Yule Ball dance at Hogwarts one time.  Thought this song isn't scary by any means it belongs in any Halloween playlist when the dark and dreary is too much.

There you have it.  Some good songs to add to your Halloween playlist.  Thanks for visiting us today.  Be safe out there.

Happy Halloween!
