'The Munsters' and 'The Addams Family' themes plus 6 more spooky Halloween song selections
Halloween is almost here and we could honestly not be more excited. What better way to celebrate than by making a spooktacular pop culture Halloween playlist?
Playlists are not only appropriate for all occasions, but they're pretty much required. How else would you continue to celebrate the wonderful Halloween season after you've put up all of your decorations? Yes, planning Halloween costumes and watching Halloween movies like "Hocus Pocus" definitely keep us in the spirit. However, you can't really multitask while indulging in these activities. That's where our pop culture Halloween playlist comes in. With it, you can stay in the Halloween spirit at all times: when you're bored at work, in the car, studying or doing homework... It's perfect for every occasion and at all times of the day (including your upcoming Halloween party).
Now, you may be asking yourself, "What does Hypable mean by calling it a "pop culture" Halloween playlist?" Well, our playlist consists of Halloween tunes that come from frighteningly delightful Halloween movies or TV shows. From theme songs to musical numbers, our Halloween playlist is sure to get you singing along and tapping your toes. Who knows, maybe it'll even coax you into doing the time warp... again!
"This Is Halloween"
In case, for some reason, you forgot what holiday it is, this song is a good reminder. But really though, this is such a fun song to sing along to. Plus, it reminds us of all of the things we love about Halloween!
With just a jump to the left and a step to the ri-ii-ii-ii-iight, you can celebrate Halloween with a super fun dance. You may have to put this song on your Halloween playlist a few times because you won't be able to get it out of your head.
"I Put a Spell on You"
As we've mentioned countless times before, "Hocus Pocus" is one of the best Halloween movies of all time (if not THE best). The Sanderson sisters' version of "I Put a Spell on You" is so much better than the original because of all of the energy and fun they put into it.
"Don't Fear the Reaper"
Though it wasn't meant to be a Halloween tune, this Blue Oyster Cult hit definitely gives off a bit of a spooky vibe. Especially to those of us who are a part of the "Supernatural" fandom. Not to mention the fact that the song is filled with glorious cowbell.
"The Munsters' Theme"
If you haven't seen "The Munsters," you definitely need to. It never fails to put a smile on our faces. That, and we can never get this theme song out of our heads once we hear it (even though it doesn't have any lyrics at all).
"Purple People Eater"
Even though this song came out way before the majority of us were born, it's still so pervasive in pop culture. Please tell us that we're not the only ones who have seen the super cheesy "Purple People Eater" movie that came out in the '80s? Fun fact: The movie stars Neil Patrick Harris!
"The Addams Family" Theme
They're creepy and they're kooky, and their theme song is seriously catchy. Whether we hear it on a commercial, at a sporting event, or while watching the actual TV show or one of the movies, we're always singing along. And snapping too. Can't forget about the infectious snapping.
Put this song on your Halloween playlist and you'll have everyone yelling "Dracula musical!" "Forgetting Sarah Marshall" is one of our favorite movies and this is definitely one of the reasons why we love it so much. It may not be spooky, but it's still a fun Halloween song.
