Music for The Spooky Season


Jay and I our first Halloween together in Albany, OR. (2011)

Being a musically minded person, I never feel quite “in the mood” for a holiday until I have jammed to some seasonal favorites.  This includes Halloween.  Work does not allow access to Pandora (where I have established a fairly nice Halloween channel), but it DOES allow access to YouTube.  So I have really gotten into making playlists for listening to at work.  I’ve got everything from Broadway to Country, and there are also two holiday channels so far: Halloween and Christmas.  I must say that I think I’ve compiled a FANTASTIC soundtrack to the haunting season.  Do any of these make your list as well?  What did I miss?

1) Highlights from the Nightmare Before Christmas soundtrack

“This is Halloween”

“What’s This?”

“Town Hall Song”

“Jack’s Obsession”

“Kidnap the Sandy Claws”

“Poor Jack”

2)  “Friends on the Other Side” — Dr. Facilier’s song from the Princess and the Frog

3)   “In the Dark of the Night” — Rasputen’s song from Anastasia

4)  “Witch Doctor” — made famous by Alvin and Chipmunks

5)  “Monster Mash” — Bobby Picket

6)  “Purple People Eater” — Sheb Wooley

7)  Music from Beetlejuice:

“Day O” (Banana Boat Song)

“Jump In”

8)  Ghostbusters Theme Song

9)  “Men in Black” by Will Smith

10)  “Time Warp” from the Rocky Horror Picture Show

11)  “Thriller” by Michael Jackson

12)  Adams Family Theme Song

13)  “I Want Candy” by Aaron Carter

14)  “Love Potion No. 9” by The Searchers

15)  “Little Shop of Horrors Intro”

16)  “Cruella DeVille” from 101 Dalmations

17)  Songs of Disney Villains:

“Mad Madam Mim” from The Sword and the Stone

“The World’s Greatest Criminal Mind” from The Great Mouse Detective

“Poor Unfortunate Souls” from The Little Mermaid

“You’re Only Second Rate” from The Return of Jafar

“Are You In or Out” from Aladdin and the King of Thieves (sung by the late, legendary Jerry Orbach)
