Halloween is almost here and there are plenty of songs out there to get you in the spooky mood.
Thriller - Michael Jackson
It wouldn't be Halloween without "Thriller" by Michael Jackson. The music video is just as terrifying as the song. This song features some iconic lyrics to get you in the mood for Halloween, like:
"You hear the door slam
And realize there's nowhere left to run
You feel the cold hand
And wonder if you'll ever see the sun"
Blinding Lights - The Weeknd
"Blinding Lights" by The Weeknd sets the tone for a feeling you might experience during Halloween: loneliness. When the blinding lights of Halloween shed light on how lonely you feel, listen to this song and forget about the world.
"I look around and
Sin City's cold and empty
No one's around to judge me
I can't see clearly when you're gone"
Disturbia - Rihanna
Other moods you could feel for Halloween are anguish, anxiety and confusion. In that case, "Disturbia" by Rihanna, is there for you. The uptempo dance song will accompany you through these feelings in the most terrifying night of the year.
"It's a thief in the night to come and grab you
It can creep up inside you and consume you
A disease of the mind, it can control you
I feel like a monster"
Bad Habits - Ed Sheeran
During Halloween night, we're all encouraged to make bad decisions. But Ed Sheeran's right there to remove your guilt with "Bad Habits." We can swear that this will be the last time (or that it's just because of Halloween), but the singer tells us clearly that "it probably won't." We'll make the same mistakes over and over again until we learn our lessons.
"My bad habits lead to late nights, endin' alone
Conversations with a stranger I barely know
Swearin' this will be the last, but it probably won't
I got nothin' left to lose, or use, or do
My bad habits lead to you."
Bury A Friend - Billie Eilish
"Bury A Friend" by Billie Eilish definitely sets the mood if you're asking yourself existential questions about life and death. Halloween brings the monster we have inside to light. This song, written from the perspective of a monster under the singer's bed, is perfect for spooky season.
"What do you want from me?
Why don't you run from me?
What are you wondering?
What do you know?
Why aren't you scared of me?
Why do you care for me?
When we all fall asleep, where do we go?"
The Monster - Eminem ft. Rihanna
Speaking of monsters, "The Monster" by Eminem ft. Rihanna invites us to befriend the monster that it's hidden inside of us. Although Halloween makes us want to dress up as monsters or people we're not, this song asks us to take a step further and fully embrace the parts of ourselves we're not particularly fond of.
"I'm friends with the monster that's under my bed
Get along with the voices inside of my head
You're tryin' to save me, stop holdin' your breath
And you think I'm crazy, yeah, you think I'm crazy"
E.T. - Katy Perry ft. Kanye West
"E.T." by Katy Perry ft. Kanye West compares a lover to an extraterrestrial, mysterious creature. You can dress up with your partner as an extraterrestrial while listening to this song at Halloween. The combination of both will definitely create a good mood for the night.
"Boy, you're an alien
Your touch, so foreign
Graveyard - Halsey
Graveyards are a major theme during Halloween... But sometimes toxic relationships can make us feel like we're reaching graveyards as well. If you've just got out from a toxic relationship and you're ready to forgive yourself for loving someone so much you were losing yourself along the way, "Graveyard" by Halsey is the perfect mood for you.
"They say I may be making a mistake
I would've followed all the way, no matter how far
I know when you go down all your darkest roads
I would've followed all the way to the graveyard"
Bad Blood - Taylor Swift ft. Kendrick Lamar
But friendship wounds can feel as bad as toxic relationships. If you've been betrayed by a friend this Halloween, blast "Bad Blood" by Taylor Swift ft. Kendrick Lamar. You'll feel empowered and ready to go for Halloween night...
"Now we got problems
And I don't think we can solve them
You made a really deep cut
And baby now we got bad blood"
Demons - Imagine Dragons
Finally, "Demons" by Imagine Dragons invites you to be kind and compassionate towards others this Halloween. Everyone is fighting a battle you know nothing about.
"Don't get too close
It's dark inside
It's where my demons hide
It's where my demons hide"
Have fun and enjoy Halloween 2021!
