The Annual’s Top 5 Songs for Halloween

Looking to make a totally bangin’ mix that’ll scare all the local kids on Halloween but give you and the ladies something to jam out to as the night goes on? Luckily, we’ve compiled the top 5 Halloween songs for your listening pleasure. Just plug these Youtube videos into whatever MP3 converter website you prefer and get ready to haunt the night away!

Why it’s spooky:
It’s all in the title: The Monster Mash. Monsters are inherently scary. This song features not one monster, but four or five different monsters. Those local kids wouldn’t dare egg your house when there are zombies inside dancing and who knows what else!

Why it’s groovy:
This track features a verse from The Crypt Keeper 5 that’ll keep you shaking that rump until stars align, triggering the end of days.

Why it’s spooky:
Did you know that Michael Jackson is dead? I know I get spooked every time I hear a dead person singing, it’s eerie. In what world should the dead be allowed to come back to life for 3-5 minutes to perform a hit song? A cruel and unjust world.

Why it’s groovy:
Vincent Price rises from the dead for a short track. There are few vocalists, dead or alive, with a voice as sultry as Vincent’s. Watch the panties drop as soon as Price sings “The foulest stench is in the air, the funk of 40,000 years” I’m hot just thinking about it.

Why it’s spooky:
This song paints the image of a nihilistic partier, a lonely scientist who is willing to give party-goers a jolt from his electrodes to just to keep their feet tapping to the beat. This man truly does not care if you aren’t in the mood to party, in the end you will dance for him.

Why it’s groovy:
Why don’t you just listen to the lyrics, “it caught on in a flash!” How can you not want to listen to it over and over, late into the night.

Why it’s spooky:
There are few Chinese dishes as unappetizing as beef chow mein. Ugh, that stuff looks a pile of worms feasting on the liver of a dead rock star. Pass the eggdrop soup Jim, I just need some comfort food tonight.

Why it’s groovy:
Ever had a Pina Colada at Trader Vicks? That drink will loosen you up faster than you can say Aa-ooooo! So drink a pint of this top 40 hit and tell the babes not to shave.

Why it’s spooky:

Listen closely to the very end of the track and you can hear actual recordings of Dr. Frankenstein and his monster. If those sounds are to be believed, the monster may be stalking the hills of a nearby village and he could be coming for you!

Why it’s groovy:
Have you ever wondered what happened to the Transylvanian Twist? It’s now the Monster Mash motherfucker! You no longer have avoid the sunlight and garlic to have a good time. Cut loose and boogie down.
