Season’s greetings! Is that something you say on Halloween? I’m not sure it is. What I am sure of is that the air is crisp, the pavements are covered in golden orange leaves and the shops are lined in orange pumpkins, and that can only mean it’s time to crack out some Halloween tunes.
1. Groovie Goolies – ‘The Monster Mash’
Cheesy? Yes. A bit creepy? Sure. All out bizarre? Of course. This song encapsulates everything wonderful and kitsch about Halloween and is an indisputable classic.
2. Michael Jackson – ‘Thriller’
Like, do I even need to explain this song’s inclusion? A dance routine and music video that is frankly genius, a catchy chorus and a ghoulish, terrifying riff. Wonderful.
3. Clap Your Hands Say Yeah – ‘Satan Said Dance’
Because I only remembered the existence of this band and this song the other day and it’s a cacophony of strange instrumentation and the disarmingly hypnotic chant of “satan said dance” – a mesmerising song to get lost in when you’re getting ready for tonight.
Because I’m dressing up as Jasmine tonight and loving this.
