Halloween Party Music Fail

Back in the days of having people around, and many moons ago, I once hosted a Halloween house party.  All was going well and then I was asked by a guest if  “I could put some Halloween music on?”

“Of course” I said  and I went away to find some spooky music. I really didn’t have anything suitable around and what music I did put on wasn’t well received as Halloween music.

Ghostbusters Film 1984

Sadly no parties are in sight for me at the moment, but maybe ghoul benefit (couldn’t resist) from a playlist made up from the Leighton Buzz Radio gang’s favourite Halloween songs. In no particular order they are:

  • Chris (from All About The 90’s and Dance Thru the Decades) said Ray Parker Junior’s ‘Ghostbusters’
  • Steve (from The Blues Cafe) picked ‘Ghost Town’ by the Specials
  • Ian (from Retro Remix and This is Not A Love Song) selected ‘Monster Mash’ by Bobby Pickett and the Crypt Kickers
  • Ray (Buzzing Music Mix Thursday Afternoons) picked ‘Werewolves of London’ by Warren Zevon
  • Station manager Drena chose ‘Sympathy for the devil’ by The Rolling Stones
  • Bob (from Keep On Keeping On) opted for ‘Broom Stick Rider’ by Speedy Cal
  • Kelly (from the Friday Morning Buzzing Music Mix) and Eryl  (from Buzzing Music Mix) both chose ‘Somebody’s watching me’ by Rockwell
  • David (Buzzing Music Mix Tuesday Afternoons) suggests ‘There’s a ghost in my house’ by R Dean Taylor
  • Johnny (from Plenty of Seventies and Nostalgia For Beginners) likes ‘Psycho Killer’ by Talking Heads
  • Steven (from the Solid Rock Show) picks ‘Fear Of The Dark’ by Iron Maiden

Even though I think that no Halloween playlist or mix is complete without ‘Thriller’ by Micheal Jackson, my fav spooky song will always be Glorybox by Portishead.


Which songs from the Leighton Buzz Radio gang’s list would you include in your Halloween songs or a playlist?

I hope you all have a great Halloween and tune in we’ll be playing some Halloween classics
