These Halloween songs are sure to make you feel nostalgic and take you back to when you had your school’s Halloween parade.

Monster Mash – Bobby “Boris” Pickett and The Crypt-Kickers

I think that we can all agree that “Monster Mash” is the most famous Halloween song ever. It is played in movies, festivals, stores, and just about anywhere you go during October. 

Monster Mash” is sung by Bobby “Boris” Pickett and The Crypt-Kickers. The song came out in 1962 and since its release, it has been streamed many millions of times. Want to know something shocking? This hit was written in about an hour. Although it was really popular, the BBC decided that it was too grotesque and banned the song.

Thriller – Michael Jackson

Thriller” is not only an iconic song, but the singer is too. Michael Jackson, arguably the king of spooky season, released this song in 1982 and released a 14-minute music video that is considered a short film. 

This song not only changed the culture of music but also revolutionized the production of music videos. The music video for this song cost an outstanding $500,000 to make. Make sure to blast this at your Halloween gathering!

Ghostbusters – Ray Parker Jr.

This next song was written and performed by Ray Parker Jr. “Ghostbusters” was released in 1984 and used for the film “Ghostbusters” that came out that year.

Since its release, it has been covered by Walk the moon, Pentatonix, Fall Out Boy, and Missy Elliot. A fun fact about this song is that it was supposed to just be a 20-30 second clip, but Ray Parker Jr. was then told to turn it into a 4-minute song.

This Is Halloween – The Citizens of Halloween

The final song, “This Is Halloween” was sung by the citizens of Halloween and written by Danny Elfman. It was released in 1993 and was a part of the iconic movie “The Nightmare Before Christmas”. 

The reason why this song is so catchy is because it does not have a common time signature, which gives the song a marching vibe. Everyone who then listens to the song is curious to know how the next part will sound.

Have a very spooky and safe Halloween!!!!
