Halloween Music: Top 25 Most Popular Halloween Songs Ever

Halloween Music


Halloween is not like Christmas, where folks go house to house and sing holiday-related songs, but there continue to be Halloween-related songs out there that folks like listening to. Radio channels even prefer to get in the spirit…humorous, spirit….by playing spooky songs on this time. Billboard Charts have determined the Top 25 Halloween Song of 2017, as measured by Nielsen Music. Using digital sales, radio airplay and even loading, the analyzing used digital song sales from October 28 to November 3, 2016; streaming and radio have been looked at from October 25 to 31, 2016.

Just half of those songs have nothing to do with the holiday, but they’re all good ‘n  spooky!

25. Santana’s “Black Magic Woman”

They never state that lady with black magic powers on her hand really is really a witch, but on Halloween, it’s the ideal time to get out of this broom-closet.

24. Rihanna’s “Disturbia”

Rihanna, as lovely and honey-voiced as she is, certain has the ability to be “scaring you tonight!”

23. Marilyn Manson’s “This Is Halloween”

I don’t need to give anything away, but let’s just say this is a popular song for Halloween. As in, don’t get upset just yet in case you would rather the Danny Elfman version.

22. Van Halen’s “Runnin’ With The Devil”

I don’t know what is scarier, invoking Old Scratch himself of the folks used to think they could pull off that hair!

21. Starset’s “My Demons”

Even the “demons” said in the song are probably meant to be private demons, but let’s not be too cautious on Halloween.

20.  DJ Jazzy Jeff & Fresh Prince’s “A Nightmare On My Street”

Make sure that you listen to the while viewing among those Fresh Prince’s Halloween specials. Either the one where May matches Cinderella or even the one where the family becomes cursed by a fortune-teller.

19. Rob Zombie’s “Dragula”

Any guy with “Zombie” in his title had no choice but to be on this listing.

18. The Cranberries’“Zombie”

Yes, hear the Cranberries, the zombies are on mind. All in mind. Excuse me while I laugh menacingly.

17.  The Rocky Horror Picture Show’s “Time Warp”

Who does not enjoy a song that tells you how you can dance to it in the lyrics…and invokes the “devil eye?”

16. AC/DC’s “Hells Bells”

“Hells Bells” is also the title of a Betty Boop cartoon where she moans into Hell and struggles off Satan together with her “cold shoulder” Flappers were produced for this particular holiday.

15. The Rolling Stones’“Sympathy For The Devil”

Note : I in no way actually condone giving sympathy to the devil, actually on Halloween. Especially since it means ‘All Saints Day Eve…’

14.  Creedence Clearwater Revival’s “Bad Moon Rising”

Beware the moon; moonlight forces, transforms werewolves and provides witches’ their classic silhouettes. On Halloween night, any moon can easily be a “bad moon”

13.  John Carpenter’s “Halloween Theme”

I am not stating that this song was cheating by calling itself “Halloween Theme” with this particular Halloween song-list, but it sure gave it an unfair advantage.

12. Radiohead’s “Creep”

You don’t belong here? Well, Halloween is the 1 night all us weirdos do.

11.  Blue Oyster Cult’s “(Don’t Fear) The Reaper”

Seasons don’t fear the Reaper; why should we?

10.  Warren Zevon’s “Werewolves Of London”

Yeah, just don’t get this confused with “Sweet Home Alabama?” You’ve been warned.

9.  Rockwell’s “Somebody’s Watching Me”

As this song reminds us, mankind has nothing to fear but the IRS.

8.  Eminem & Rihanna’s “The Fantastic”

Rihanna actually doubled-dipped this season. Why should Mariah Carey be the only singer having a biography on holiday songs?

7. Skillet’s “Monster”

Technically, the “monster” the song is talking about is the Hulk, but many kids will be dressing up like superheroes anyway.

6. AC/DC’s “Highway To Hell”

I’m beginning to think that AC/DC and Rihanna have to joins forces at least another year.

5.  Danny Elfman’s “This Is Halloween”

I advised…

4. Imagine Dragons’“Demons”

These guys already invoked some demons when they had dragons in their side. They sure are covering their bases.

3.  Bobby “Boris” Pickett & The Crypt-Kickers’“Monster Mash”

Does this song require any introduction?

2.  Ray Parker Jr.’s “Ghostbusters”

Who ya’ gonna call?

1. Michael Jackson’s “Thriller”

Long before the dead were out walking, they had been outside steppin’

Are there any songs you think should be on the list?
