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?

Music!

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:

Holidays!

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.
