If you’re looking for some unique Halloween songs to play for your Halloween party, check out this interesting grab bag of tricks and treats. From rock to pop to oldies and alternative, the Halloween songs here are an interesting way to dress up your favorite holiday:
“Halloween” by Helloween – This is one of the best heavy metal rock songs about the horrifying holiday, full of high-pitched howling that might just keep the boogeyman away. So if you and your friends choose to dress up like a leather-clad zombie rock band this year, this is one of the songs here that’s a must-have on your Halloween playlist.
“Halloween” by Siouxsie & The Banshees – And here’s another of the best Halloween rock songs to keep your howl-day hardcore. This one is funky and frightening and full of tricks and treats, but it’s got a beat that will definitely have you moving your freaky monster feet.
“Halloween on the Barbary Coast” by The Flaming Lips – If you want to really celebrate debauchery this Halloween, then this might be on the best alternative rock songs for your Halloween playlist. It’s all about the red light district of San Francisco town, but it’s got a spooky and psychedelic sound that makes it one of the best songs that mentions Halloween to play on the holiday.
“Desperation Samba (Halloween in Tijuana)” by Jimmy Buffett – And here’s one of the best songs for those longing for a sunny vacation this Halloween. So if your costume has a warm weather theme, escape from the cold and take a Halloween holiday with this beach-Mex song (but hopefully your treats in Tijuana don’t include barbequed iguana).
“Halloween” by Aqua – This is one of the best Halloween songs for those that like a little fun with their frights on Halloween night. It starts with that iconic ‘Halloween’ sound, but the spooky bits soon become just as sweet as Halloween candy. However, there are also plenty of cheesy B horror movie moments (complete with freaky phone calls). Just beware: while this is one of the songs here that will satisfy your sweet tooth, it might give you a Halloween candy hangover.
“Black No. 1 (Little Miss Scare-All)” by Type O Negative – Here’s one of the best Halloween songs for those that like hearing scary stories on Halloween. It’s like listening to a vampire read you a tale of horror set against some hardcore rock music, and it definitely makes one great theme song for all the mistresses of the dark that have their roots died black for Halloween night.
“Spooky” by Classics IV – And here’s another of the best Halloween songs for sexy (and spooky) seductresses looking for love on Halloween night. And what girl doesn’t want a Halloween proposal, am I right? Even if you don’t propose with a plastic spider ring, be sure to dedicate songs like this to the girl haunting your dreams on Halloween.
“Halloweenhead” by Ryan Adams – This is one of the best mellow Halloween songs for having a cup of chilly boo brew to with your best buds (but beware: you might end up with a Halloweenhead in the morning after downing too many tricky treats).
“Something in My House” by Dead or Alive – And here’s one of the best glam rock songs for those feeling haunted by the 80’s this Halloween. You have to really listen to hear the Halloween reference here, and you’ll also discover that this tale of terror is really about the horrors of the heart.
“Egg Man” by Beastie Boys – This is the perfect tribute to a teen’s favorite Halloween trick: egging! But while it’s one of the funkiest songs here and a lot of fun to listen to, I sincerely hope doesn’t inspire any tossing of the protein-rich treats on Halloween.
So from rock songs that will help you have a Rocky Horror holiday to some to play when you want to keep the thrills and chills at bay, be sure to play plenty of songs like these on Halloween night to keep you going until the morning light.
