Nine spooky songs to set the mood for Halloween night.
9. “Lullaby” / The Cure
Creepy spiderman being sneaks into your room, with you being main course. No seconds for me, please.
8. “Me and the Devil Blues” / Robert Johnson
What could be scarier than the devil knocking on your door, first thing in the morning?
7. “Theme From Pyscho” / Bernard Herrmann
One of Hollywood’s best composers and compositions. Don’t close the shower curtain ever again.
6. “Feed My Frankenstein” / Alice Cooper
“I’ll blow down your house / and then I’m gonna eat ya.” Somehow, I have no doubt.
5. “Bela Lugosi’s Dead” / Bauhaus
Just listening to the screeching and tapped violins gives you the willies. Today, it would be a hip-hop song.
4. “The Raven” / Alan Parsons Project
Maybe it is all the sleepless nights courtesy of Mr. Poe, but the haunting interpretation of of “Tales of Mystery and Imagination” conjures up all kinds of disturbing mysteries and imagination.
3. “Every Breath You Take” / The Police
No more frightening description of stalking exists.
2. “I Walk on Guilded Splinters” / Dr. John
With mysterious African rhythms, the master of voodoo hoodoo comes in at a spooky #2 with a haunting track from his 1968 “Gris-Gris” album.
1. “The Exorcist Theme” – “Tubular Bells” / Mike Oldfield
Even if it has been years since you saw the movie, the opening piano notes from Oldfield’s classic will still bring up some goose bumps.
