Music Monday, Halloween-Style!


It would be safe to say that there are many things we love over here at The Nostalgia Diaries – quotes, words, memories, color, laughter, life. Aw, heck, we love just about everything. One of the things at the top of our list?


Every Monday, we will be sharing our love of music with you. Stories, news, and mix-tape mix ups to spark up some nostalgia.

But there is something else at the top of our list of things we love:


So it only seems appropriate that today, our first Music Monday, is also Halloween—a holiday steeped in musical tradition.

Can you believe our luck? Getting to do a blog post that celebrates two of our favorite things – music and a holiday?? That’s kinda like when you went trick-or-treating as a kid and came across a house that handed out full-sized candy bars. Score! (Not to be confused with these, of course.)


We’ve rounded up our top 6 favorite fun, silly and creepy Halloween-appropriate tunes to share with you fellow nostalgia seekers. All of them bring about a little nostalgia for us, and we’re pretty sure they will for you, too. Because what’s not to love about choreographed zombies, a houseful of crazy people, a monster with killer dance moves, haunted rocking chairs, a funny 80’s rap about Freddy Krueger, and a group of men whose job it is to rid Chicago of ghosts?

Thriller – Michael Jackson

Time Warp – Rocky Horror Picture Show

Monster Mash – Bobby “Boris” Pickett and the Crypt-Kickers

Jump in the Line – Harry Belafonte

A Nightmare on My Street – DJ Jazzy Jeff & The Fresh Prince

Ghostbusters – Ray Parker Jr.

So Happy Halloween, friends, and welcome to Music Mondays! Stick with us, because they’re going to be MOUNDS of fun.
