Lordskunk.com’s Top 10 Must Play Halloween Songs!

Happy Halloween everyone!  Whether you are having a costume party, playing music outside for the kids coming to loot your candy bowl or just chillin’ at the crib, you have to jam out to some Halloween themed music.  No worries, Lordskunk.com has you covered!  These are the Top 10 MUST play Halloween Songs.  Enjoy!


This year a new Ghostbusters movie was released.  After much hype and even more controversy this all female reboot movie made my Top 10 of NEVER WATCH MOVIES.  However, along with their reboot movie came the reboot of the theme song.  While I’m not a huge fan of the song, I am a big fan of Fallout Boy.

Not afraid to come in at #10…

 


There are many horror franchises that people enjoy watching around Halloween.  For the old school it’s gonna be Friday the 13th or Nightmare on Elm Street. For the 90’s kids then you have the Scream franchise and the like.  The next era brought us Saw and The Purge franchises. But we must not forget one of the oldest gore fests and the one that actually shares this holiday’s name.

Stabbing in at #9….


Everyone will remember our #8 entry.  From our earliest days this song was played at school, parties and included in some of our favorite Halloween themed movies.  It includes all our favorite monsters.

Mashing in at #8…


Our #7 entry is not quite as kid friendly as the previous song, but it will definitely get the attention of those lil’ costumed candy creeps when they come a knockin’.  They will think twice about taking 2 pieces of candy when this song is rockin’ your neighborhood.  This style may not be for everyone, but I had a chance to meet this band and hang out with them and they are just cool dudes.

So screaming into our #7 spot…

 


Ok, we are back to a more kid friendly song with our #6 spot.  How could I not include the theme song of the family that embodies the freaky-ness of Halloween all year long.

Creeping in at #6…


Our #7 artist makes a return to this list with an even more eerie, and arguably more catchy, tune.  This a great song to play while the trick or treaters are coming by or when you are just wanting to chill during your sugar coma.  The intro alone is worth the price of admission.

Howling in at #5…


One of my personal all time favorite songs to listen to at Halloween AND from a great movie – Ghostbusters 2.  Both original Ghostbusters main songs were catchy, but what makes them great is all the cameos from famous people of the time who appeared in them.  This is also the only song on the list to feature a potential U.S. President.

Taking control of the #4 spot…


The #4 song got us movin’, so to continue that our next song gets us groovin’.  It’s too legit to not be on this list.

Groovin’ in at #3…


The Original Ghostbuster movie, theme song and music video will always be the best of the franchise.  You go anywhere in the world and say “Who ya gonna call?” and you will have a 90+% chance they will respond with “GHOSTBUSTERS!” The amount of cameo’s in this video makes it a must watch multiple times, just to try to find all the celebrities who make an appearance. Think you can find ’em all?  Post in the comments below with who you see.

Calling in at #2…


If you survived this far, you have now made it to THE ALL-TIME GREATEST MUST PLAY song at Halloween!  This music video transcends Halloween and could, and should, be played all year around.  From one of the greatest albums and times in this artist’s career – brings us not just a song, not just a music video – but a full blow entertainment masterpiece.  When this music video was released it had as much promotion, hype and fan fare as any major blockbuster of today – and didn’t disappoint then and still doesn’t to this day. If you don’t play this song at Halloween, you are doing yourself a huge disservice.

Thrilling us all at #1…


Thanks for checking out the Top 10 list!  I hope you enjoyed it.  Do you have a song that should make our playlists this Halloween?  Post it in the comments section below.  Have a happy and safe Halloween and rock out wit’ yo candy out!
