Welcome to a new Top Ten Tuesday!

It’s the most wonderful time of the year! That’s right, Halloween is upon as again tomorrow and being as it’s my favorite holiday (and my birthday, so you can say I was born to be a Halloween fan, haha) it deserves to be celebrated!

I usually love spending this day by watching scary movies, reading books featuring supernatural creatures AND listening to my Halloween playlist. So since I already focused on the first two in previous Halloween posts, for today’s post I decided to share ten of my favorite Halloween songs.

I tried to list some of the lesser known songs and a mix of genres, so I hope you’ll discover some new additions to your own playlists! Happy listening and happy Halloween everybody!

DJ BoBo – Vampires Are Alive

Fun fact: this song was once entered in the Eurovision song contest. It did not win. But it’s cheesy, campy and so bad it’s good.

Evanescence – Haunted

This song just has such a supernatural and, well, haunted vibe!

Da Boy Tommy – Halloween

Some Belgian 90’s jump-style nostalgia. It’s been a part of so many of my Halloweens, so I can’t think of any songs that belongs to Halloween more to me.

Misfits – Dig Up Her Bones

This punk song has just the right amount of creepiness for Halloween! The howling definitely helps.

Descendants – Rotten To The Core

Disney can do Halloween too! Love this movie AND the wickedly cheesy soundtrack.

Double Trouble – Harry Potter Soundtrack

I’ve always loved the Prisoner of Azkaban for its Halloween aesthetics, especially this song.

Kesha – Cannibal

Such poppy, Halloweeny fun!

Creedence Clearwater Revival – I Put A Spell On You

Come on, it’s definitely a classic for a reason! So many great covers too, but I still feel like this original fits Halloween best.

The Pretty Reckless – Going To Hell

I can’t help it, I love this song by The Pretty Reckless!

Florence + The Machine – Seven Devils

So creepy. So atmospheric. Perfect for your Halloween playlist!

  1. FUN way to spin today’s topic, Lindsey – I love it. Despite the face that I’m way past the Disney Channel target age, I do love a fun Disney original movie now and again. (I grew up with ‘Tiger Cruise’ and ‘Cadet Kelly.’) Someday just for nostalgia’s sake, I’d like to watch “DESCENDANTS.” 🙂

    also… HAPPY (early) BIRTHDAY!! Hope your day is special. 🙂

  2. Ohhh, what a fun twist this week! ? Florence is one of my favorite artists of all time and Seven Devils is my favorite song of hers. It’s so underrated and SO GOOD. ♥

    My T10T this week is a list of horror movies I love if you’re interested! ♥

  3. I love this!! I made a playlist this past weekend of creepy music. Living Dead Girl is my Halloweenish song. Also, is that Jenny from Gossip Girl????

  4. Great twist! I love Rotten ot the Core. <3 And yeay Evanescene. I heard them on the radio this weekend and realized how much I missed listening to their music.

  5. First of all Happy Birthday for tomorrow! I love Haunted by Evanescence! 😀 My favorite Halloween songs are probably on the soundtrack of The Nightmare Before Christmas. That counts, right? lol

  6. Ooh your birthday is on Halloween? Happy bday! And I love Halloween-ish songs. Pretty Reckless are kinda awesome. 🙂 And I like the Descendants song.

  7. Such a fun list! I love Florence + The Machine, and you can’t go wrong with a bit of Kesha. I hope you have a great birthday!

  8. Happy birthday! I definitely want to hear the Ghostbusters theme song, and Thriller, too!

  9. I love that you have a full Halloween playlist. I might need to borrow that tomorrow! I love all sorts of Halloween songs but “This is Halloween” and “Time Warp” are definite classics. Happy Early Birthday!


  10. What a creative take on this week’s prompt! I’d never heard any of these songs, so it was fun to check them out.

    Here is our Top Ten Tuesday.

  11. I love the variety in your list and I especially love that CCR song.

  12. Haha, I love the dancing skeleton graphic. Fun topic. I didn’t know there were so many Halloweenish songs.
