It’s Monday, and Monday means music fun! And hello?! It’s Halloween! So naturally our theme this week is all Halloween all the time. Find your spookiest tune, and let’s dance, shall we?
Let’s start with a song that was this artist’s breakout single with a circus theme where you won’t be able to shake off the feeling that an evil clown is about to sneak up behind you while watching.
Give a listen to Melanie Martinez with “Carousel”:
Right from the opening scream, this artist’s number one hit will get people dancing – and singing along to that crazy catchy hook. Bum-bum-be-dum-bum-bum-be-dum-bum…
Here’s Rihanna with “Disturbia”:
This next song opens with the artist eerily humming, and the sound becomes the centerpiece to the Hunger Games soundtrack song. The dissonant harmonies on the chorus add to its Halloween-ness, but the song’s beat can still get party-goers groovin’.
Here’s the mesmerizing Lorde with “Yellow Flicker Beat”:
No Halloween themed music post would be complete without this next tune. Just ask the kids, they’ll tell you.
You guessed it! It’s Bow Wow Wow with “I Want Candy”:
Last, but not least, is one of mine and Princess Nagger’s favorite Halloween tunes. It’s simply not Halloween without it.
This is Halloween – The Nightmare before Christmas:
That’s a wrap for this week – have a great Monday!
