If you’re like us and you’ve already got yourself a bad case of the Halloween on a Monday blues, here are some wicked good numbers to get you back on track.
Wonderland rounds up 10 spooky tunes to get you feeling Halloweenie.
Season Of The Witch – Donovan
This has to be one of the most atmospheric pieces of psychedelic rock out there, we mean you can practically feel that nighttime fog closing in around you, it really srikes that ideal balance between deceptively upbeat and totally creepy. Truly spellbinding.
Disturbia – Rihanna
No pop star can channel their dark side quite like RiRi, she’s really got terrifying glamour down pat. You’ll be ‘bum bum be-duming’ along to this classic with your pals like it’s 2008 in no time.
Rhiannon – Fleetwood Mac
Oh Stevie, our glorious white witch. This track is haunting in the very best way so get out your lace shawl and join in. Hot tip: do not publically attempt to karaoke.
Somebody’s Watching Me – Rockwell
We know the feeling. You really just can’t beat those mezmerising synthy beats and the music videos is a 10/10 on levels of kitsch. Major.
Spooky – Atlanta Rhythm Section
This jazzy, poppy melody goes out to to ‘spooky little girls’ everywhere. Can you ever get enough of that hypnotic keyboard?
Monster – Kanye West
If anyone knows just how it feels to be demonised it’s Ye and he gives it right back to his critics in this menacing jewel of a track full of distorted, twisted rap and heavy drums. Bow down.
Scary Monsters (and Super Creeps) – David Bowie
Rule no 1: Never be a super creep. Bob your head along to Ziggy’s heavy, pulsing percussion and eerie guitar riffs and let the spooky dive bar vibes wash over you.
I Put A Spell On You – Screamin’ J Hawkins
The Sanderson sisters certainly do this track justice, (Hocus Pocus, anyone?) but they ain’t got nothin’ Scream’ J Hawkins and his throaty growls + that deep, rich vibrato.
Time Warp – Rocky Horror Picture Show
Don those fish nets and tight corsets because no fright night is complete without a little boogie to this crowd pleaser. It’s just a jump to the left..and then a step to the right!
Monster – Lady Gaga
The queen of all things weird, Gaga sings of the pain of love lost wailing ‘He ate my heart’ (we hope, metaphorically speaking?)
