As the spooky season approaches, you might see pumpkins and spider webs everywhere, but what’s more important to me is how the holiday is reflected in music. We compiled some of our favorite songs and covers that reflect the spirit of the season.
1. Marilyn Manson – This Is Halloween
The Nightmare Before Christmas is one of those must-see Halloween movies. I can’t stop listening to this metal cover of the song by Marilyn Manson. The cover is sycned to the original video and is a bit more terrifying than the original song.
2. Ghostbusters (Kill Paris Remix)
Did you think the original ghostbusters song was funky? Kill Paris’s retake on the song adds a whole new level of groove to the song.
3. Figure – Beetlejuice
Figure essentially became famous for his dubstep remakes of Halloween songs – his beetlejuice remix is a classic.
4. Bro Safari ft. DJ Craze – Spooked
This song was released for the season last year by Bro Safari and DJ Craze.
5. Skrillex – First of the Year (Equinox)
While this song is not explicitly about Halloween, it is extremely fitting for the tone of the season.
