Other top picks include “Monster Mash” by Bobby “Boris” Picket, “This is Halloween” by The Citizens of Halloween and “Ghostbusters” by Ray Parker Jr. Blue Oyster Cult’s “(Don’t
Fear) The Reaper” is another oldie but goodie, according to listeners.
In fact, you’ll notice these songs, awesome and eerie as they may be, are all classics. “Monster Mash” was recorded in 1962, and while “This Is Halloween” is the youngest of the
bunch, it was still released more than twenty years ago as part of the soundtrack to the film The Nightmare Before Christmas.
Last Halloween, several non-spooky songs featured prominently in Halloween party playlists, like Justin Timberlake’s “Take Back The Night,” Miley Cyrus’ “We Can’t Stop,” and Katy Perry’s “Roar.” A solid choices for 2014 might be Iggy Azalea’s “Black Widow.”
