The Park at Winters Run Blog, Bel Air, MD  Capture the essence of Halloween with these classic songs. So listen up at your apartment all month long.

Chances are when we say “Holiday Music” minds turn to Bing Crosby and classics like White Christmas — well, there are other holidays which have music unique to them, and this month, that’s Halloween. That’s right, Halloween has some awesomely spooky music associated with it, and today we’ve rounded up some classic favorites for member of our apartment community at The Park at Winters Run to enjoy here in Bel Air, MD. So without further ado — Halloween Music to enjoy all month long.


“This is Halloween” by Danny Elfman

This song from The Nightmare Before Christmas is upbeat and fun, but also eerie and reminiscent of a creepy chant.


”Monster Mash” by Bobby Pickett

This fun song tells the story of Dr. Frankenstein watching as his monster comes to life and begins to dance. Watch the video to appreciate Bobby Pickett’s very expressive face.


”Thriller” by Michael Jackson

Thriller stands supreme as the most downloaded Halloween-themed song of all time! It is also one of Michael Jackson’s top hits. This incredibly catchy song even includes a signature dance. Go ahead, bust a move!


Ghostbusters Theme Song

From the 1984 hit movie Ghostbusters starring Bill Murray, this song is both catchy and fun, much like the humorous movie itself.


“Superstition” by Stevie Wonder

Featured in several different films, this song has become a classic that references the supernatural. The warm, rich jazzy tones of this song depict Stevie Wonder’s musical style exquisitely.


“I Put a Spell on You” by Nina Simone

Probably best known for its appearance in the classic Halloween movie Hocus Pocus, the lyrics in this song are perfect for Halloween. The version of this song in the movie is a bit different than the original by Nina Simone, which is more soulful and features a strong jazz and blues vibe.


Now that Halloween music has taken over your mind, you’ll be in the mood for the 31st. Keep these safety rules in mind as you’re out and about this month.


— Only visit people you know in familiar areas.

— Carry a flashlight to see and be seen. Use reflective tape on costumes, bags, and sacks.

— Stay on the sidewalk at all times and cross streets at crosswalks and intersections. Do not cut across yards. Lawn ornaments and clotheslines can become ‘hidden hazards’ in the dark.
