Happy Halloween from DPEG Marketing Company!

by Oct 31, 2022

At DPEG Marketing Company, one of our values is education. That’s why most of the content you’ll find here is purely educational. We discuss why you need a website, the tiny house industry updates, how to work with eCommerce, and more. But it’s not all work and no play here, either. We also value a strong work/life balance.

Today is my favorite day of the year. I love Halloween so much. I love decorating, dressing up, passing out candy, and listening to spooky music. And there’s more to Halloween music than just The Monster Mash. So today, we thought we would have some lighthearted fun and share our top 5 Halloween party songs so you can turn up the spirit of the season today, too.

Werewolves of London by Warren Zevon

You can’t go wrong with this classic. With lines like “I saw a werewolf drinking a pina colada at Trader Vic’s. His hair was perfect,” this song is an absolute jam. It has a memorable melody that will get stuck in your head all year.

Creepy Doll by Jonathan Coulton

I love comedy music. And some music is laugh-out-loud with a punch line, and some music is more cerebral in its comedy styling. The latter is a perfect description of Jonathan Coulton. On the surface, his song “Creepy Doll” is a scary story about a haunted doll. But the song works on a deeper level. My favorite line:

Now it’s late, and you head downstairs
Cause you can’t sleep so, you make some tea
And the doll disapprovingly asks if you really need that much honey

Welcome to My Nightmare by Alice Cooper

Going back to classic jams, I couldn’t avoid putting “Welcome to My Nightmare” by Alice Cooper. As a GenXer born and raised in the Detroit area, Alice Cooper was a mainstay on local radio, so I couldn’t escape his music even if I tried. But I also remember this Muppet Show segment very clearly.

(It’s a) Monster Holiday by Buck Owens

I recently discovered a few other old Halloween songs that are worth a listen. One is by Buck Owens, one of the cohosts of Hee-Haw in the 1970s. If you’re looking for something beyond the “Moster Mash,” “(It’s a) Monster’s Holiday” is a spooky country hit that will have you on your feet and forgetting all about the “Transylvania Twist.”

Zombie Jamboree by Harry Belafonte

I do not know how I never knew about this song. Harry Belafonte’s “Day-O” was used in the movie Beetlejuice,so it has become a de facto Halloween song, but it wasn’t his only spooky hit. “Zombie Jamboree” is a fun song about an undead party that’s well worth adding to your Halloween playlist. Like Buck Owen’s song, it’s perfect for dancing.

There are literally hundreds of songs I would love to include on a Halloween playlist, but it would take forever. Tell us, what are your favorite Halloween songs?
