# 1. Season of the Witch – Donovan

Being among the first songs to fit the psychedelic genre, Donovan regards 'Season of the Witch' as prophetic. This five-minute long song played in George Romeo film way back in 1973. It revolved around a conservative woman of Catholic denomination who ends up in the 70s occult craze. There is more than meets the eye with this Halloween music. Lots of battles with fierce tribesmen leading to children fleeing and warriors being disemboweled are what makes this music a real horror.

#2. Thriller – Michael

What makes it a Halloween theme song is the presence of the zombies. Once Michael meets Ola Ray, who then becomes his girlfriend, he suddenly turns into a werecat who ends up chasing and attacking her. The thriller is indeed a horror dream especially when Michael turns into a zombie himself after passing a graveyard.

#3. Monster Mash – Bobby 'Boris', Pickett and Cryptkickers

This song has evolved into numerous film adaptations, rising to the fame presently. It is purely based on the story of one Dr. Frankenstein who goes ahead to create a strange creature. In turn of events, this creature turns into a living being and a monster for that matter. The monster then becomes the mastermind behind throwing a big party which is particularly attended by other scary creatures like Dracula and Wolfman.

#4. Hungry like the Wolf – Duran Duran

This scary Halloween music is about an adventure in the midst of the jungle. The band is actually traveling from Sri Lanka when somewhere between the roads, one of them, Simon Le Bon technically disappears. He is actually on the hunt for a tiger-like woman who drives him right into the middle of the jungle. This music will surely make your party thrill all the way through.

#5. The Rocky Horror Picture Show – Time Warp

It is indeed a horror, with the inclusion of a mad scientist who is not a real human being but an alien transvestite. The story revolves around a young couple who on their way home, gets a car puncture leading to the break-down of their car. In an effort to get help, they meet strangers in undefined costumes who seem to be in a celebratory move. All moves seem scary, driving you into the land of Halloween in mere seconds.

#6. Disturbia - Rihanna

This Halloween music is surely disturbing. The scare and discomfort of being imprisoned are clearly depicted. It begins in a circus-like torture chamber with scary videos of Rihanna in really a tight situation. From being tied in a bed, to having her eyes totally rolled into her head’s back, and being dragged to a gas chamber is all hell.

#7. Runnin' with the Devil – Van Halen

This song's lyrics have always been regarded as satanic even though the members have never revealed the meaning of the song. However, it deals with an individual’s experience as to how it should be. The song also presses on the fact that freedom is definitely lack of social ties. It has incorporated lots of things that Van Halen became famous for, which includes, Eddie's guitar solo, David Lee Roth’s squeal, and Anthony's backup vocals.

#8. Demons – Imaging Dragons

It has a mix of both live footage and other narratives. Being the real Halloween classical music that it is, Demons incorporates various characters with totally different roles. It is all about hardships that all sorts of people go through. Actually, the kind of face that the public sees may not be what is hidden under the curtains. In this 4 hour video, get the reality of a grieving mother, parental abuse, and total suffering from a man with Marfan syndrome who can't withstand himself in front of a mirror.

#9. Ghostbusters – Ray Parker

Falling within the top in our Holloween music list, Ghostbusters is self-explanatory. This song features Cindy Harrell, who is a young woman being haunted by some ghosts. It is all scary as you can image ghosts reaming the entire house. Cindy has no choice but to call for help. This video features top celebrities among them Teri Garr, Irene Cara, Ollie E. Brown, and John Candy among others. The end result of the chase is a dancing galore of the film stars in Ghostbusters costumes.

#10. I Put a Spell on You – Screamin' Jay Hawkins

It has appeared from time to time as a Halloween theme song that is properly choreographed. The inclusion of screams, a coffin, tusks, and skulls just put this song in its rightful place. Jay appears out of a coffin in a black cape and a tusky nose, which is a real scare. The additional cigarette smoking skull just kills it all together.
