Happy Quarantine-O-Ween all!
Monster Mash was released in 1962 and actually became a Number 1 in October of that year. Even since then it's been a Halloween classic, so it's only right that this kicks of todays list.
Now this one isn't your typical Halloween hit and in fact this song went a little under the radar due to being a B side for her single Moderation in January 2019. Although a little different to what you would expect who doesn't love the idea of your heart being a spooky haunted house?
Petras released Turn Off The Light part one as a 7 track EP in 2018, which was then followed by part 2 in 2019 and ultimately became a 17 track full album of spooky hits. If you like then this then be sure to check out the entire album because this alone is one hell of a spooky hit!
This song was released by Andrew Gold in 1996 from his album Halloween Howls. The song has become a Halloween classic over the years and has even been covered by the Red Hot Chilli Peppers.
I was obsessed with this song in my teen years, constantly replayed and I danced like mad many times around my room. 18 years later and I still love it. Released in 2002 from the album Taste The Blood of Zombina and The Skeletones, this is definitely one to dance like mad to.
This song doesn't really need any kind of comment, it's a classic, a really, really good classic and perfect for today! Released in 1984 the song and video are still considered one of the best releases of all time.
I Put A Spell On You was originally released by Jalacy 'Screaming Jay' Hawkins in 1956. Over the years it has been covered so many times that you can't really listen to it without singing along, even if you think you don't know the words. In 1993 it was included in Hocus Pocus and sung by Bette Midler, although some of the song was tweaked to fit more in with the film. I adore this song with a passion and love the film even more so.
Time Warp is another classic on the list and one that definitely makes you get up and dance. I don't think you're even allowed to have a Halloween party unless you play this song... it's Halloween law! Released in 1975 it's just one of the many songs sung throughout The Rocky Horror Picture Show.
Released in 1984 Rockwells Somebody's Watching Me reached number 1 on Billboards Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Songs chart and number 6 in the UK! It also made it into the top ten in 14 different countries. The song also features baking vocals from both Michael and Jermaine Jackson and is another Halloween hit.
Halloween was actually released on Halloween in 1981 and has grown over the years to become a Halloween staple. Then again who doesn't love a song that sings about Candy Apples and Razor Blades? The song has also been covered several times most notably by Alkaline Trio and AFI.
