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!
