The Addams Family Theme
Whether you remember the Addams Family from the original cartoons in The New Yorker magazine from the 1930's, the black and white television show from the 1960's or the feature films from the 1990's, you will definitely know this song.
Bobby 'Boris' Pickett's hit from 1962 is still a Halloween favorite. And I love the dogs in costumes in this video.
Ghostbusters by Ray Parker, Jr.
The cameos by Irene Cara, Melissa Gilbert and Senator Al Franken are so fun!
Welcome To My Nightmare by Alice Cooper
This song is from the album of the same name which describes a little boy's nightmares. Creepy.
Werewolves of London by Warren Zevon
Is it just me or does Warren Zevon look like Warren Beatty?
Thriller by Michael Jackson
The original video was 14 minutes long and was voted the most influential pop video of all time. In this video, inmates in the Philippines do the Thriller dance for exercise and recreation.
It was the music that made the shower scene so scary. Did you know the blood was actually chocolate syrup? Apparently, it looks better in black and white than stage blood.
Jaws Theme by John Williams
I hear this music every time I get in the water.
The Shining Soundtrack
From the very first notes, you know something bad is going to happen!
The Exorcist Soundtrack
One of the scariest movies ever made. This music still gives me the creeps!
