Twas the night before Halloween and all through L.A. sexy ghouls and Sarah Palin’s were ready to play. The e-vites were sent out, there’s booze in the freezer, the pumpkins were carved, this party couldn’t be easier!
But then with a gasp, a yelp and a shriek, you realized you need MUSIC, Halloween inspired beats! But whom do you turn to Beatport, HypeM, or mom? Then you realize (you’re a genius) Clubplanet.com!
And with that you saw we had saved the day! Told you exactly what Halloween songs you should dance to and play. So take a gander below at our knowledgeable advice, and to that we wish you a good Halloween night!
DJ Jazzy Jeff and The Fresh Prince – “Nightmare On My Street”
DJ Jazzy Jeff and The Fresh Prince were bitten by the Halloween bug and made this song perfect for a neon spandex and 80’s gold chain Halloween bash. Will Smith tells the story of a fly man with a problematic ghost named Fred, who likes to jump in his sheets and scare him to tears. Wouldn’t you be scared if a big man jumped in your bed at night? Well maybe not! DJ Jazzy Jeff creates fresh beats to back up the hilarious lyrics that have similar humorous qualities as “Parents Just Don’t Understand,” released on the same album. "Nightmare On My Street” was actually one of the pair's biggest hits, and is sure to be a smash at your Halloween Party, 90’s style.
Michael Jackson – “Thriller”
You can’t throw a raging Halloween party without playing "Thriller." Mostly remembered for its ground breaking music video, "Thriller" is the perfect party song because it accomplishes the #1 most important thing that a song can do… make people get up and dance! With dance moves that everyone already knows, you won’t have to witness your friends doing the running man or shopping cart, at least for this song. Lucky for you, if you play the video instead of the just the song, it’s 13 minutes long. You will thank us later.
M.C. Hammer – “Addams Groove”
The Addams Groove was the second single off M.C. Hammer’s 1991 hit, Too Legit To Quit. The song appeared on both The Addams Family motion picture soundtrack and M.C. Hammer’s CD. Everyone loves the Addams Family, and everyone will love you for playing this song. Especially after lots of Halloween cocktails and a rousing game of bobbing for apples… or bobbing for shooters in a bucket of punch.
Cheeky Boy – "The Mozza Mash" (Morrissey Vs. Bobby ‘Boris’ Pickett)
Mashing together "The Monster Mash" and Morrissey, this song is a must have for your Halloween monster party. Bringing a modern twist to the classic song, I can guarantee your guests will be impressed when your throw this on -because really, everyone loves the monster mash and most people like Morrissey, and if you think about it Morrissey as a band is pretty Halloween themed. You can’t get more old-school than a song released in 1962, sung by a man who made a living doing “Monster” themed tunes. And when Christmas comes around, keep in mind that Bobby Picket also made “Monster’s Holiday”. See, Clubplanet is making all your party dreams come true!
Whodini – “Haunted House of Rock”
If you are not familiar with Whodini, “Haunted House of Rock” is a great introduction. The Brooklyn based hip-hop group formed in 1981, when Halloween was less commercial PG and more mischievous and menacing. You would be surprised to know that this song was actually their first single and is still rocked in clubs today. The lyrics mention every classic Halloween character there is, so your Halloween party guests will feel extra special when Whodini calls out their Halloween name.
DJ Engineer – "Jumpin Candy Werewolf Creeps"
Mashing together Destiny Child’s “Jumpin” with hard beats, trance music, and about 10 other Halloween-themed songs like Bow Wow Wow’s “Candy,” this club jam will get all the ghosts and ghouls off their feet. Serve with candy corn, cocktails, and Jell-O shots you will have one crazy Halloween Bash!
