#1 Michael Jackson – Thriller
Michael Jackson’s Thriller is hands down the #1 video for Halloween. Featuring werewolves and zombies as well as the voice of Vincent Price, Thriller encompasses everything Halloween.
#2 The Cure – Lullaby
The Cure’s Lullaby comes in at #2 because of the pure creep factor involved in this nightmare featuring a giant spider.
# 3 Ray Parker Jr. – Ghostbusters
Ray Parker Jr.’s theme song to the movie Ghostbusters was a massive hit in the 80s and incorporates clips of the ghost chasers themselves.
#4 Rockwell -Somebody’s Watching Me
Rockwell’s creepy video about being stalked would be enough to make the list by itself, but the addition of Michael Jackson’s vocals made this one a huge hit.
#5 Alice Cooper – He’s Back (The Man Behind The Mask
Alice Cooper is one of the first shock rockers to take horror to a new level and this video from the soundtrack to Friday The 13th Part VI: Jason Lives earns him a spot on the list.
#6 Men At Work – Dr. Heckyll And Mr. Jive
Men At Work offered up this video and single which is a tongue-in-cheek take on Dr, Jekyll and Mr. Hyde is great fun.
#7 DJ Jazzy Jeff And The Fresh Prince – A Nightmare On My Street
Will Smith and DJ Jazzy Jeff bring us this spoof of The Nightmare On Elm Street movies for a fun, goofy video and song.
#8 Oingo Boingo – Dead Man’s Party
Danny Elfman’s Oingo Boingo scored a hit with this song from the Rodney Dangerfield film, “Back To School”.
#9 KISS – I Love It Loud
KISS leading a hypnotized army of KISS fans is perfect for Halloween creepiness and seems tame by today’s standards.
#10 Greg Kihn Band – Jeopardy
This nightmare of a video featuring Greg Kihn in a wedding ceremony is weird and creepy and earns our final spot on the list.
