Top 13 Halloween Songs & Videos

halloween haunted house Top 13 Halloween Songs & Videos

I originally posted these videos a couple weeks ago.  You gave a LOT of feedback!  Some agreed with my choices.  Some…not so much.  But, it definitely stirred up some conversation.  So, here again, are my top 13 picks for your Halloween soundtrack.  (Yes, I picked 13 on purpose.)  This ought to scare the bejeezus out of those kids!  Maybe they’ll drop their candy.  More for you ;-)

Let me know if you agree or disagree with my choices.  Oh, and feel free to add YOUR faves in the comment section.

[lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]Mike Oldfield[/lastfm] – “Tubular Bells” (Exorcist Theme)

  • David Davenport

    Love this list! I would also suggest “Welcome to My Nightmare” and “School’s Out” from Alice Cooper. “Hotel California” from the Eagles. “Angie Baby” from Helen Reddy. “99 Luftbaloons” from Nena. “1999” from Prince. and “Don’t Worry Be Happy” from Bobbie Mc Fadden only because that song scares me when that dead fish sings it at the store. LOL

    • Steve Goddard

      Hey David – wanna help me put the Top 6 @ 6 lists together – you’re good! – Steve

      • David Davenport

        LOL. Call me man! I would be more than willing to help anytime. I’d do it for free too, it was fun!

      • Steve Goddard

        Don’t be surprised!!! – Steve

    • Jeffrey T. Mason

      Those are some interesting choices. Not sure I can get behind Nena or Prince. But, Bobby McFerrin is definitely terrifying ;-) Thanks, dude!

      • David Davenport

        Well, no one should get behind Prince or have Prince get behind them. LOL Glad we think alike about the Bobby McFerrin song. :)

      • Jeffrey T. Mason

        But, to have Robin Williams in your video…that’s pretty KOOL!

  • Gary of Glendale (Dash)

    Wait a minute. No “I Put a Spell On You” by Screamin’ Jay Hawkins? Or even the CCR version? What about “Season of the Witch” by Donovan? Blood, Sweat & Tears “Lucretia MacEvil” or Classics 4 “Spooky” for crying out loud? Or the Doors “Riders on the Storm”, Cher “Dark Lady”, Jim Stafford’s “Spider & Snakes” or his lesser known “Swamp Witch”? Charlie Daniel’s Band did a song called “Legend of Wooley Swamp” that should be considered or The Crazy World of Arthur Brown’s “FIRE”. “Bloody Well Right” by Supertramp or Cliff Richard’s “Devil Woman” or the “Black Water” of the Doobie Brothers. There are alot of songs that belong on the list. I just don’t think yours are necessarily the “TOP” songs.

    • Jeffrey T. Mason

      Gary- Those are just MY top 13 picks. Yours look pretty good, too! You know the old saying, “results may vary.” But, hey…it got you to read and comment. Some great listener interaction is happening here…and that’s what I love! Thanks, bud :-)

      • Gary

        What about Tom & Maria or Steve Goddard? Are they going to put together a list? It would be fun to see the differences all of you can come up with.

      • Steve Goddard

        Gary –
        I have a big list coming next week. In the meantime, check out the bizarre Halloween photos I just posted. It’s like nothing you’ve ever seen – or imagined! – Steve
