Playlist Thursday: Halloween Songs

I am linking up with Pavement Runner today. I LOVE his music posts, mostly because I am always looking for new running songs to add to my playlist, but because of the format of his posts.

Today’s theme is: Halloween. I love Halloween, it is one of my favorite holidays, so this is right up my alley.

Some classic Kelly halloween costumes (we used those helmets at least 3 times):

Guts competitors – Husband was MO…the only thing missing was the Agro Crag.

The Jamaican Bobsled team — missing COACH and a bobsled.

One of my favorite movies is The Nightmare Before Christmas, so obviously there is a song in here from that :)


Artist: Michael Jackson
Title: Thriller
Side Note: This is the obvious choice that I am sure a lot of people will have, but it is the classic halloween song.
Quotable: Darkness falls across the land. The midnight hour is close at hand. Creatures crawl in search of blood. To terrorize y’alls neighborhood.


Artist: Kelly Clarkson
Title: Dark Side
Side Note: I like that halloween has a bit of a “dark side” that you can pretend to be something completely opposite of what you are for a night.
Quotable: Like a diamond. From black dust. It’s hard to know. What can become. If you give up. So don’t give up on me. Please remind me who I really am.


Artist: Danny Elfman, Marilyn Manson or Panic! At the Disco
Title: This Is Halloween
Side Note: There are three versions to this song, the movie version and then when the movie was re-released they released an album with 4 of the songs redone by “major” artists. I love the Manson and Panic! versions as well as the original.
Quotable: This is Halloween, everybody make a scene. Trick or treat till the neighbors gonna die of fright. It’s our town, everybody scream. In this town of Halloween.

My favorite — or most memorable costume however, was when my mom dressed me up as a pumpkin, not a cute one, using those pumpkin leaf bags and stuffing it with newspaper. I promptly snagged it on a branch and ripped it open showing everyone my undies. What was your favorite or most memorable costume?
