Halloween Music

List any Halloween songs, music pieces, or any music that gives you a Halloween vibe. We need to start building an annual list.

My Mummy used to sing Halloween songs to us when we were wee.

♪♫This is the night of Halloween
When all the witches may be seen
Some are short
And some are tall
And some are as mean as a hick-or-ry SWITCH!!
♪♫

That one was sung in a deep voice. Then there was a more light-hearted one:

♪♫Pick-a pick-a pumpkin from the pile
You can make his eyes and a great big smile
Pick-a pick-a pumpkin, round and clean
Then you'll be ready for Hall-o-ween!
Hall-o-ween! Hall-o-ween!
Then you'll be ready for Hall-o-ween!
♪♫

And then this one is a version of a song I read years later in the Scary Stories to Tell in the Dark book, but I always sing it the way Mummy taught me:

♪♫If you ever see a ghost go by
Then you will be the NEXT TO DIE!
They wrap you up in clean white sheets
And bury you SIX FEET DEEP!
The worms crawl in, the worms crawl out
The ants play pinochle IN YOUR SNOUT!
Your tummy turns a slimey green
And pus comes out like REAL WHIPPED CREAM!
You spread it on a piece of bread
And that's what you eat when you're
DEAD DEAD DEAD!!!
♪♫

Not really. Every Christmas Eve we gathered around as she read The Night Before Christmas. Easter morning, she would get up and hide all the eggs we had dyed the day before around the house for us to find. The night before St. Patrick's Day, she would sneak down after we were asleep and turn all sorts of things upside down (like pictures and chairs and nick-knacks) and then tell us Leprechauns did it. And on Halloween, we would gather together as she carved the pumpkin and sang us songs about worms eating our pus-laden guts. What's morbid about that?!?

Bach: "Tocatta & Fuge in D Minor"
"Monster Mash"
The theme to "Phantom of the Opera"
"In the Hall of the Mountain King"
"Dance Macabre"
Thykovsky: "Swan Lake" the opening of the 2nd act, which was used as the theme music to the 1930's classic "Dracula" staring Bela Lubosi. That was acualy the first time I ever heard that piece of music.
Them to "Dark Shadows," and various other songs that came from that tv series.

A Touch of Evil by Judas Priest...
They say that life's a carousel
Spinning fast, you've got to ride it well
The world is full of kings and queens
Who blind your eyes and steal your dreams
Its heaven and hell, oh well


I am Vengeance...I am the Night!

I swear to God...[Batman]SWEAR to Me!!

Don't worry Mike.

There mere fact that Mac knows the lyrics to anything that Andrew Lloyd Webber has written calls his sanity into question. :?
All you that doth my grave pass by,
As you are now so once was I,
As I am now so you must be,
Prepare for death & follow me.

Well Mike, there's the Overture, which, you're right, doesn't have lyrics, but there is also the title song, which is essentially the same song, only with lyrics sung by the Phantom and Christine. Either way, it's still your fault for mentioning it!!! :lol:

Phantom is the only Lloyd Webber show worth knowing the lyrics to. And this, THIS is the thing that's finally made you question my sanity?!?!? Fella, you have not been paying attention. :|

I put a Spell On You...Screaming Jay Hawkins (I think that's his name)

Spinning fast, you've got to ride it well
The world is full of kings and queens
Who blind your eyes and steal your dreams
Its heaven and hell, oh well
