For the first time in a few years, Halloween isn’t happening during fall break. This officially puts the holiday back on the TCNJ map. We can once again look forward to themed baked goods at Bliss Bakery and discuss the best TCNJ employee costume. And are you aware that Halloween is on a Friday this year? We’re all obviously going to have a very merry October 31st.
Here are some songs to help get you in the mood.
Thriller – Michael Jackson
If you’ve never seen this music video then you really need to reevaluate your life and your choices. What have you been doing? It’s imperative to have at least a working knowledge of the Thriller dance moves. That’s actually a requirement of going to a liberal arts school and achieving a well-rounded education. Some people around here may need to be put into Remedial Thriller 099.
Rockwell – Somebody’s Watching Me
Essentially paranoia in a song. The video is especially festive as well. Also, no, I don’t have a problem including Michael Jackson twice on the list since he only sings the chorus.
Time Warp (Rocky Horror Picture Show)
It’s just a jump to the left.
Haunted – Poe
As the title suggests, this song is perfectly appropriate for Halloween. And if you’re a Zelda fan, the artist’s name makes this pick doubly appropriate. I do have to say that the ending legitimately creeps me out though so you’ve been warned.
Helter Skelter – The Beatles
I considered mentioning Revolution 9, but that won’t get you in the mood for Halloween so much as it would inspire you to go to psychiatric hospital.
Werewolves of London – Warren Zevon
Quite a friendly sounding piece considering that in the song little old ladies are getting mutilated by werewolves!
Werewolf Bar Mitzvah
Boys becoming men. Men becoming wolves.
