Spooky, Scary Songs

By Jade Glaister

It’s Spooky Season!!! Excitement for this spectacular time of the year cannot be contained and should only be celebrated to the highest extent. What better way to celebrate and really get into the spooky spirit than with some spooky, scary songs? Starting off with a classic that never fails to make me feel like a skeleton is “This is Halloween.” If you have not yet felt the spirit of Halloween, this is a great start to get you there. Don’t worry if you suddenly feel the need to put on “The Nightmare Before Christmas” after listening, we’ve all been there. Speaking of skeletons is another hit that will make you want to dance like a skeleton. If you really want the full skeleton experience, give “Spooky, Scary Skeletons” a lesson and try to learn the dance. While you’re doing that, if you see some movement in the corner of your eye, make sure you have your phone near you because you’ll need to make a call. Who you gonna call? Ghostbusters! In the meantime, as you wait patiently in the corner and hope it was just some weird lighting, you can jam out to “Ghostbusters” and potentially watch the iconic movie if you really have a lot of time to spare. If you’re working in a lab late at night and just happen to have Just Dance 2 with you, dancing and listening to “Monster Mash” is also an excellent way to spend time and get in the spirit. While you’re at it, you can also get a crowd to join by “Calling All the Monsters” with this absolute bop of a song. Even better, you can get a family together with the “Addams Family Theme” and feel the excellent companionship of Wednesday and some snazzy snapping. If that is still not enough to get you in the Halloween mood, you can also check in with our favorite dog and listen to “What’s New, Scooby-Doo?” which is somehow associated as a common Halloween tune. We can also never forget the amazing “Witch Doctor” that will never leave your head after listening. If instrumental music is more your cup of tea, the “Halloweentown Theme” can make you believe that you’re at a Halloween carnival despite its short length. Lastly, we can’t forget Phoebe Bridgers’ “Halloween,” which should always be listened to. Enjoy your listening, and I hope these tunes get you in the spooky spirit!
