Ten Songs – Halloween

OK everybody it’s time for ten songs the Halloween edition.  Do I really need to explain this?  Let’s just get to it.

10. Warren Zevon – Werewolves Of London - Is he really talking about werewolves in this song or am I just missing the metaphor?  Oh and where is Trader Vicks and who is Lon Chaney?

9. Michael Jackson – Thriller – The mother of all Halloween songs you have to hand it to MJ he really did a great job.  If you ever stop yourself and listen to the lyrics they truly are kind of terrifying.  Ben Gibbard of Death Cab For Cutie does a fantastic acoustic version of this song which highlights the true horrific nature of the lyrics.  Click here for that version you won’t be disappointed.

8. The Ramones – Pet Sematary – Any excuse to put the Ramones on a list is a good one.  Although this isn’t their best work it’s still good for Halloween.

7. Mötley Crüe – Shout At The Devil – You’re trying to figure out how I got the two dots over the “O” and te “U” in Mötley Crüe aren’t you?  Have fun with that one.

6. Bobby “Boris” Pickett & The Cryptkeepers – Monster Mash – What would Halloween be without this song I mean really?  I bet this guy’s sitting at home counting his money right now. Dammit why couldn’t I think of it.

5. Iron Maiden – Fear Of The Dark – Metal is always good for Halloween.

4. Type O Negative – Black Numer 1 – RIP Peter Steele your voice may have been the scariest of all time.  All hail these Brooklyn metal Gods.

3. Rockwell – Sombody’s Watching Me – This guy had Michael Jackson as his backing vocals and was still a one hit wonder.  Ouch that sucks.

2. Ray Parker Jr. – Ghostbusters – Who ya gonna call while you try and sleep after watching Paranormal Activity 2?  The ghostbusters of course.

1. Rob Zombie – Dragula – No one does Halloween like the Zombie himself. BTW  has anyone seen his wife?  Boy is she hot.

I wanted to put Otis Redding’s “Trick or Treat” but I couldn’t find it on you tube.  Give me your suggestions in the comments.
