An ’80s classic, “Thriller” will have you on your feet showing off your best zombie dance moves. The song features a cameo by Vincent Price, the king of horror, which goes well with the king of pop’s creepy tune.

The Talking Heads is another favorite ’80s band that features an alternative sound. The song is about running away from a crazy serial killer, but it has a very sarcastic tone. While not as spooky as more “classic” Halloween songs, it will bring a fun break to your party playlist.

 

 

3. “Ghost Town” Adam Lambert

Who you gonna call? From the cult classic movie of the same name, this song is instantly recognizable. When you’re tired of the creepy side of Halloween, Ghostbusters will help you get rid of the heebie-jeebies.

 

 

6. “Blood Like Lemonade” Morcheeba[/vc_column_text][vc_video link=”https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VyRxTTegjXM&feature=youtu.be”][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column][vc_column_text]

It doesn’t get much stranger than this  the song is about a preacher turned vampire killer who drinks the blood of his victims. If that doesn’t scream Halloween, nothing will.

 

 

7. “Zombie” The Cranberries[/vc_column_text][vc_video link=”https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6Ejga4kJUts&feature=youtu.be”][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column][vc_column_text]

A ’90s Irish band named The Cranberries created many songs with political undertones, and “Zombie” is no exception. A song about the mindless violence of war, “Zombie” has a haunting melody. It’s the perfect Halloween tune for the political activist.

 

 

8. “Feed My Frankenstein” Alice Cooper[/vc_column_text][vc_video link=”https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NO2cHJmDkBg&feature=youtu.be”][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column][vc_column_text]

Listeners might recognize this next Halloween top 10 song from “Wayne’s World.” The heavy metal band’s screeching guitar riffs and loud vocals fit perfectly with the overall message of the song  this guy is a monster, so watch out.

 

 

9. “Disturbia” Rihanna[/vc_column_text][vc_video link=”https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=E1mU6h4Xdxc&feature=youtu.be”][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column][vc_column_text]

The lyrics in this song get me every time. It’s reminiscent of the eerie thoughts that creep up on you after watching a scary movie.

 

 

10. “One-Eyed, One-Horned Flying Purple People Eater” Sheb Wooley[/vc_column_text][vc_video link=”https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=X9H_cI_WCnE&feature=youtu.be”][/vc_column][/vc_row]

This last song is a definite oldie, but it still can get you in the Halloween spirit. It will bring you back to your childhood Halloween celebrations, when images of cartoon-ish monsters were enough to give you the shivers. Now, this song is just plain fun.
