Trick or jam! Halloween is here, so you know what that means? Take out your phone, open Spotify, apple music, youtube, or anything you got, and turn on some of your favorite Halloween songs to dance the night away. What’s Halloween without the tunes anyway?

Coming in at the top of the world’s favorite Halloween song, “Thriller” by the king of pop, Michael Jackson. His song continues to be at the top and is known best for its music video with him and his “date” played by Ola Ray. Thriller has been a hit since 1982 and continues to gain popularity to this day. Now, besides this big hit, there are many other hit songs of his such as “remember the time“ and “smooth criminal“ where he does his famous moonwalk.

Today the second best song known from the movie “The Nightmare Before Christmas” is, you guessed it, “This is Halloween” by Danny Elfman. Nothing beats making some popcorn and seeing that movie start to play, then the song comes on and you hear him say, “Boys and girls of every age. Wouldn’t you like to see something strange? Come with us and you will see This, our town for Halloween!” This song is definitely memorable.

“Okay, first things first I’ll eat your brains, Then Imma start rocking’ gold teeth and fangs”, famous lyrics from another hit by Ye (Kanye West). His song “Monster” Had been released in 2010 and was one of the biggest topics in the 2000s. Now monster is one of those underrated songs by a very underrated artist. It was one of the songs in his album “ My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy” which continues to keep making its appearance in the media even today.

I’m sure you could guess this banger when you hear these lyrics, “ Spooky, scary skeletons, Send shivers down your spine, Shrieking skulls will shock your soul, Seal your doom tonight,” this groovy tune made by Andrew Gold, and as ironic as it is the name of the song is Spooky scary skeletons, funny right?

I talked with some fellow classmates of mine and asked a few questions about their favorite Halloween songs and other ones that they really enjoy and I got good inputs on Monster mash, spooky scary skeletons, and Thriller which tend to be our school favorites this year. In fact, after speaking with Minnie, a junior at Agua Fria I briefly asked her about her favorite Halloween songs, and with the biggest smile filled with excitement she said “Obviously Monster mash!” So if you aren’t already in that spooky spirit just yet, how about playing some tunes and jamming the night away.
