Monday’s # 3 Most Popular song on Billboard’s Top Ten Halloween Songs has me confused:
DJ Jazzy Jeff and the Fresh Prince – “Nightmare On My Street” (1988)
This song was so successful that the producers of the film Nightmare On Elm Street sued for copyright infringement. DJ Jazzy Jeff and Will Smith, the Fresh Prince, will add good humor to any Halloween gathering.
The #4 song of Billboard’s Top Ten Halloween Songs of All Time is from the scariest movie of all time:
Mike Oldfield – “Tubular Bells Pt. 1″ (Theme From ‘The Exorcist’) (1973)
Can you say creepy? The producers of The Exorcist knew what they were doing when they chose this song for a theme. The album Tubular Bells was released as the first album on the Virgin Records label and gained an impressive commercial foothold for the new entry into the music industry.
The #5 song of Billboard’s Top Ten Halloween Songs recalls one of the best cult movies ever:
‘Rocky Horror Picture Show’ Soundtrack – “The Time Warp” (1975)
This signature song from The Rocky Horror Picture Show is a perfect party song. It not only makes you want to dance, the song provides the instructions. Many TV watchers will remember the use of “The Time Warp” on The Drew Carey Show and Glee’s tribute to The Rocky Horror Picture Show.
Today’s Top Ten Billboard’s Halloween Song ia…
#6 “Ghostbusters,” by Ray Parker, Jr.
This is the theme song from the phenomenally successful movie Ghostbusters. Ray Parker, Jr. wrote the song like an advertising jingle for a ghostbusting business. This #1 pop hit is certain to get everyone shouting along, “Ghostbusters!” Suitable for all ages, the song “Ghostbusters” isn’t scary. It is simply pure fun.
So, somehow I got messed up in my days. Today’s songs on Billboard’s Top Ten Halloween Songs are…
Here’s #8: Ramones, “Pet Sematary.
Punk legends the Ramones recorded “Pet Sematary” for the movie of the same name based on a novel by Stephen King. It was also included on the Ramones album Brain Drain. Many fans consider the movie to be one of the scariest of all time.
And the number 7 song, a classic. Donovan. Season of the Witch.
This 1960s pop classic by Donovan has been used widely in movies and TV. It is most frequently used either to illustrate the sometimes violent unrest of the late 1960s or as an accompaniment to the topics of horror and witchcraft. Most recently the song was used on the sountrack to Tim Burton’s feature film version of the TV show Dark Shadows.
