While it’s hard to beat “Monster Mash”, “Thriller”, “Ghostbusters” or anything by Danny Elfman as the ultimate Halloween song, that doesn’t stop people from trying. The thing that endures and keeps people these songs after all these years is that while the theme is spooks, the tone is always fun. Here are five songs from 2014 I found that have that sense of fun, while still being slightly creepy. Happy Halloween!
Jamie T “Zombie”
Primus “Pure Imagination”
Flaming Lips “Lucy In The Sky With Diamonds” (careful there’s language issues)
Ghost Town “You’re So Creepy”
Melanie Martinez “Dollhouse”
