Nothing gets you in the spirit of Halloween like a few spooky tunes. Luckily, we've put together the ultimate retro Halloween party playlist!
Though Halloween looks a little different this year (okay, a lot different!), this throwback playlist brings spooky fun to all the boys and ghouls out there.
Playlist Fun Facts
- "Monster Mash" is one of the most iconic Halloween songs. It all started when Bobby Pickett did a Boris Karloff impression. When rehearsing with his band, everyone thought the Boris impression was so spot on and hilarious, that they wrote a song with horror hero in mind. That tune became "Monster Mash" and hit number 1 on the Billboard charts in 1962.
- The Munsters theme is a must for any Halloween shindig. Did you know that Al Lewis (Grandpa on the show) was actually one year younger than Yvonne de Carlo? So, he would have been -1 year old when he had his daughter Lily. That is a strange family!
- "The Witch Doctor" as sung by Alvin and the Chipmunks saved a record company! Liberty Records was about to go out of business until David Seville (real name Ross Bagdasarian) and his perky pets made Witch Doctor a number one hit! Extra fun fact: Ross Bagdasarian was an actor before Chipmunks fame. He can be seen in Rear Window as the Piano Player.
