Halloween Playlist – BJ’s Picks
If you are getting ready for Halloween then you are going to need some kick ass music to go along with the celebration. Lucky for you I have some great Halloween songs picked out just for the occasion. Some holiday staples, some wildcard picks and some that are just plain creepy. So make sure to crank these up while your handing out candy, getting dressed up and getting ready to rock out this Halloween.
Iced Earth – Dracula
Iced Earth has been one of my favorite metal bands for a long time, and in 2001 they released an album chock full of Halloween metal songs. One of the best on it is the one inspired by the dark prince himself, “Dracula”. Metal and Halloween go hand in hand, and this song is totally spooky.
Ray Parker Jr. – Ghostbusters
The theme song from one of the best movies from the 80's. It's a Halloween essential and a must for any party playlist. It's a lot of fun to go through and see all the irrelevant celebrities doing cameos in the video.
Avenged Sevenfold – Bat Country
Avenged Sevenfold should just play every Halloween party that they can because they just give off a horror show vibe. The riff in this song is so awesome and scary, a for sure Halloween pick.
AFI – Halloween
I know what your thinking, why not the Misfits original version? I have always been a fan of AFI and I just happen to like this version better, plain and simple. How could I not include a song called Halloween?
Alice Cooper – Welcome To My Nightmare
What an incredibly creepy vibe I get from this classic Alice Cooper tune. No one can have a nightmare like Cooper, and this song is a staple for Halloween parties.
Rob Zombie – Living Dead Girl
I never really know what Zombie is actually singing about, but from the best of my knowledge this one is about a zombie girl. I could be wrong, but still one of the most perfect Halloween songs.
Rocky Horror Picture Show – Time Warp
One of the weirdest and most beloved Halloween movies/shows brings us one of the best songs ever. The “Time Warp” is a song that everyone loves. Now jump the left and do those pelvic thrusts already!
Black Sabbath – Black Sabbath
It's seriously the most evil song of all time. The devils note or diminished fifth is played through out it. People literally use to think that note would summon Satan himself and these guys wrote an entire song using it. It creeps me out every time and I love it.
Michael Jackson – Thriller
I don't care who you are, you love “Thriller”. What's even better than the song is the nearly 15 minute long music video to go along with it. It use to scare the crap out of me when I was a kid. Forever a Halloween staple.
Marilyn Manson – This Is Halloween
'A Nightmare Before Christmas' is probably one of the creepiest kid movies ever. How can you make it even creepier? Get Marilyn Manson to cover the signature tune from it! Nobody creeps it up quite like Manson.
