12. TV On the Radio – Wolf Like Me
Don’t get me wrong, but I honestly believe that this is one of the sexiest things I have heard in my life. “Wolf Like Me”, the debut TV On The Radio single, is my playlist’s attention seeker.
It’s a poem that urges party people to think or even do foxy things. Its sensual appeal and sexual lyrics turn out to be a bit dangerous, so make sure you only play it when people are drunk. Eventually, they will try to make love and produce babies that will turn into real life devils. Amen.
11. AC/DC – Highway To Hell
At this point, we need to acknowledge that this is a top-10 track among the most significant classic rock recordings of all time. “Hey Satan, paid my dues, playing in a rocking band” is the point of no return for Halloween freaks all around the world. Produced by Mutt Lange, maybe the only person who can literally compete against Rick Rubin for the most production credits in music the last 5 decades, “Highway to Hell” serves as an undeniable highlight for your hellish gathering.
10. Santana – Black Magic Woman
Fleetwood Mac recorded “Black Magic Woman” in 1968, but I cannot think a single person who believes this is not Santana. It may not be a fun tune to start with, but you can always count on its universal appeal, especially among parents. So, if you’re planning a Halloween party with parents or grandparents included, make sure this one’s on your Spotify list, because, you know, a satanic performance like this can give you a solid excuse for what’s coming next for you, nasty millennials.
9. David Bowie – Scary Monsters (and Super Creeps)
Bowie has recorded music for every occasion. He has disco songs, soul songs, dance songs, classic rock songs, art rock songs, alternative songs, jungle songs, hipster songs (that’s not a thing, obvs) or even pop songs. It’s not a surprise that he also has an album named “Scary Monsters (And Super Creeps)”, which includes the song “Scary Monsters (And Super Creeps)”, produced by Tony Visconti. This is a Bowie Halloween gift to humanity, a tiny part of his huge legacy. Embrace it like a holy curse.
8. The Rolling Stones – Sympathy for the Devil
As a child, I believed that Mick Jagger was a transsexual rock star and I adored the idea of this being actually true. Later on, I started to believe that he’s just a bisexual, which is true, more or less. My sympathy for his majesty led me to love “Sympathy for the Devil”. Like every other Stones’ classic, this one serves paganism better than god Pan himself… “Just as every cop is a criminal and all the sinners saints / As heads is tails, just call me Lucifer / Cause I’m in need of some restraint“.
7. Stevie Wonder – Superstition
I think that this was the first time people turned against Stevie Wonder. “Superstition” in particular caused some kind of controversy among conservative circles. At the and of the day, it topped the Billboard Hot 100 in 1973 and ended up becoming one of his signature songs and a pop culture classic. Mentioning many popular superstitious fables throughout its funk-soul musical structure, this is the perfect Halloween dance-off and a great reason to adore this living legend.
