Here's our pick of the top 5 Halloween Songs with great Quotes


#1 - This is Halloween

1993 - The Nightmare Before Christmas ~ Tim Burton

This is #1 of course because the movie and song was written specifically for the Halloween Holiday. There are so many good quotes from this song making it difficult to choose just a few. We selected our favorites that would go well on social media posts and memes.

"Boys and Girls of Every Age, wouldn't you like to see something Strange"

"Come with us and your will see, this is our town of Halloween"

"This is Halloween, this is Halloween, Pumpkins scream in the dead of night"

"I am the one hiding under your bed, Teeth ground sharp and eyes glowing red"

"I am the one hiding under yours stairs, Fingers like snakes and spiders in my hair"

"In this town we call home, Everyone hail to the pumpkin song"

"Scream! This is Halloween"

"I am the "who" when you call, "Who's there?" I am the wind blowing through your hair"

"I am the shadow on the moon at night, Filling your dreams to the brim with fright

"Life's no fun without a good scare"


#2 - Thriller

1982 ~ Michael Jackson

Thriller brings out the fun of the scare and horror side of Halloween. While not intended specifically for Halloween, Thriller is a favorite and has some great lyrics for quotes! 

"It's close to midnight. Something evil's lurkin'in the dark"

"You try to scream but terror takes the sound before you make it"

"You start to freeze as horror looks you right between the eyes, You're paralyzed"

"Night creatures callin', The dead start to walk in their masquerade
There's no escaping the jaws of the alien this time"

"All through the night, I'll save you from the terror on the screen
I'll make you see, That this is thriller"


#3 - Purple People Eater

1958 ~ Sheb Wooley

Who hasn't sang Purple People Eater with their kids or at a party? This is a favorite silly song that really has nothing to do with Halloween but has always been popular on Halloween playlists and parties. 

"It looks like a Purple People Eater to me"

"Mr. Purple People Eater, don't eat me"

"It was a one-eyed one horned, flyin' purple people eater, sure looks strange to me"


#4 - Monster Mash

1964 ~ Bobby Pickett

Can't help but wonder what Bobby Pickett's social media sites would look like if Social Media existed back in this day in 1964! He really gets into the spirit of the lyrics with his facial expressions!

"From my laboratory in the castle east
To the master bedroom where the vampires feast
The ghouls all came from their humble abodes
To get a jolt from my electrodes"

"For my monster from his slab, began to rise
And suddenly to my surprise
He did the mash, he did the monster mash"

"The zombies were having fun, the party had just begun
The guests included Wolfman, Dracula, and his son
They did the mash, they did the monster mash"


#5 - I Put A Spell On You

1993 - Hocus Pocus

Love this movie, probably more because of the actors, then the movie merits, but it is a fun Halloween movie with this great song scene. 

"I put a spell on you, and now you're mine"

"The Witch is back and there's hell to pay"


#6 - Witch Doctor

1958 ~ David Seville 

Maybe because there were not many Halloween songs back in the day, is the reason this song is synonymous with Halloween, or maybe it's just the fun lyrics and the witch doctor that brings our the Halloween spirit, but either way, this classic has it's place in our list with some fun quotes! 

"I told the Witch Doctor I was in Love with you"

"Ooh Eeh Ooh Ah Aah Ting Tang Walla Walla Bing"


#7 - GhostBusters

1984 ~ Ray Parker Jr.

Ghosts are one of the main themes of Halloween and this song is established as one of the top Halloween songs of all time. 

"I ain't afraid of no ghost"


#8 - Werewolves Of London

1978 ~ Warren Zevon, Excitable Boy Album

"I saw a werewolf drinking a pina colada at Trader Vick's, His hair was perfect."

"I saw a werewolf with a Chinese menu in his hand, walking through the streets of Soho in the rain"



#9 - Rocky Horror Time Warp

1975 - Rocky Horror Picture Show

Rocky Horror has become synonymous with Halloween as people love to dress up and act out the characters of this fandom classic. While these lyrics and quotes may be more suitable for other holidays or themes, if your demographic of followers love Rocky Horror, these quotes will have them liking and sharing.
