Top 10 CD1025-- Halloween Songs
October 25th, 2016
Running through our catalog, I marked a few of my favorite Halloween tunes. These are not Halloween holiday songs exactly, but they’re all themed in horror, or are culturally connected to the spooky holiday. And they’re all so good. Enjoy!
First, the werewolves. The monsters are always my favorite.
WARREN ZEVON-- WEREWOLVES OF LONDON
TV ON THE RADIO—WOLF LIKE ME
Watch out for the psycho killers.
THE CRAMPS-- TV SET
There’s also a Spoon version of this tune that's pretty spot on to the original.
NICK CAVE & THE BAD SEEDS—RED RIGHT HAND
And the paranormal.
CONCRETE BLONDE—GHOST OF A TEXAS LADIES MAN
THE WHITE STRIPES—LITTLE GHOST
THE RAMONES—PET SEMATARY
If you’ve seen The Silence of The Lambs, you’ll understand why Q Lazzarus made the list, based on its association with the incredible, yet terrifying film.
Q LAZZARUS—GOODBYE HORSES
And just for fun,
OINGO BOINGO—DEAD MAN’S PARTY
BAUHAUS—BELA LUGOSI’S DEAD
Also, check out the Chvrches cover of this tune, and a very chill bossa nova style cover by Nouvelle Vague.
Add these to your playlist, and have a Happy Halloween!
