I still remember dancing to this song at my 5th grade class’s Halloween Party. It’s a tune that makes everybody smile and sing along, cause we “ain’t afraid of no ghost!”
4. Super Freak
Pay tribute to all of the freaks that come out on Halloween with Rick James’ 1981 hit. Get out the strobe light and groove along to this song.
3. The Time Warp

The Rocky Horror Picture Show is an iconic Halloween flick, and this song and dance combo symbolizes it all. The moves are right in the lyrics, and it’s easy and fun to do.
2. Monster Mash
Bobby “Boris” Pickett
Halloween just wouldn’t be complete without this song. I grew up knowing this song from as long as I can remember, and I wouldn’t have a Halloween playlist without it. Enjoy the silliness it inspires in people of all ages.
The Thriller album is the best-selling album of all time, and its title track is one of the reasons why. I can’t think of this song without picturing the video, complete with that iconic zombie dance. The whole experience personifies Halloween, making it my number one Halloween song. In fact, the song and the video are so intertwined in my memory, that I provided the link here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AtyJbIOZjS8.
