Halloween Freebie: Ghoulish Sounds for Party Crawlers…

Top Ten Tuesday is an original feature/weekly meme created by The Broke and The Bookish.

Halloween freebie. Yeah, I talk about books, movies, and whatever pops into my head. Throw music in the mix and you pretty much grasp what entertains me. If you’re headed to a knockout party, make sure these ten tunes keep you on the dance floor and thrilled with more jumps than you expected.

For this top ten, I’m including songs that any Halloween party worth its salt should include. Caveat: I’m excluding my main man, Michael Jackson and his amazing tune, Thriller from the list.

(I can post him all day long, ya’ll)

He’s a given. So,  yeah. Mr. Popularity (Well-deserved, by the way) will eat his popcorn in the heavenly clouds tonight.

  • “Time Warp” from The Rocky Horror Picture Show  horror rocky rocky horror picture show the rocky horror picture show time warp GIF


  • “Ghostbusters” by Ray Parker, Jr.  music gif movies film ghostbusters GIF


Sorry. Uh-uh. Not tonight. We know they’re also a given at Halloween parties. We’ll leave them in the VIP section with the King of Pop.

Spin the turntables…

  • Dracula’s Wedding (Outkast featuring Kelis)For the hip-hop heads, this tune off Speakerboxx/The Love Below deserves a spin. Poor Dracula. He’s in love. Usually, he flips women. But, one particularly woman snatches his attention and he’s off the charts with how he feels for her. Kelis brings her lovely vocals to a delicious tune.  vampire classic film dracula bela lugosi GIF


  • Sympathy for the Devil (The Rolling Stones). Normally, I wouldn’t give him any. However, this tune makes you consider how his work in making the world move, albeit in negative fashion. Give the hoofed one some credit. Just don’t expect any love in return.  homer simpson episode 1 season 12 hell devil GIF


  • I Put a Spell on You (Screamin’ Jay Hawkins). There’s something fiendish and delectable about this man’s insistence on owning the subject of his desire’s love. He sings about putting a spell on this woman. Yet, by song’s end, you realize he screams of her spell on him. Oh my!  oh my george takai GIF


  • Torture (The Jacksons). Yeah, I cheated. My list. My rules. Sue me. One woman spooks them into leaving their inhibitions behind. Throw my name in the ring. Show me what you got, honey. the jacksons GIF


  • Teeth (Lady Gaga). Show me her teeth. Show her how far you’re willing to go. She’s a big girl. She’ll take it.  celebrities lady gaga teeth paparazzi black lips GIF


  • Superstition (Stevie Wonder). Grab some funk. Grab some rock. Grab some killer vocals. But, keep those beliefs in check, or else, you’ll suffer. Dominic Grijalva music hot red yellow GIF


  • Haunted (Beyonce). Queen B’s haunting, excuse the pun, song about changing one’s skin for the thrill and chase, well, leaves you haunted.  beyonce haunted beyhive queen b queen bey GIF


  • Freaks Come Out at Night (Whodini). Do they? Oh, I’ve seen many more in the daytime at Target. Still, this hip-hop classic deserves a play at your party.  movie movies film party horror GIF


  • Black Magic Woman (Santana). When you need to slow the party’s roll a bit, darken the house more and cool your heels. Take a listen to a song inspired by me. Just kidding.  black magic GIF. Maybe.


  • Somebody’s Watching Me (Rockwell featuring Michael Jackson a.k.a. The King of Pop). I’ve broken my own rule already. Mr. Jackson features on the chorus of this paranoid track. Look behind you. Did you check your windows and doors? Can’t be too sure, you know.  music video vintage 80s retro mtv GIF

Have fun tonight, Boils and Ghouls! Be mindful of your neighbors, though. It’s Tuesday, not the weekend, and the fun has to end sometime.
