THE TOP 25 HALLOWEEN MUSIC VIDEOS!

October 26, 2008

“The first time I remember being scared was when I was 5 years old and my mother dangled me over the body of baseball great Babe Ruth, who was lying in state at Yankee Stadium. She wanted me to remember that afternoon for the rest of my life, and I have, which is why I don’t go to funerals.

The next time my adrenaline started rushing like that was when my Aunt took me to a second, or third-run theater, where they were playing “The Picture Of Dorian Gray” It’s a story of a man who sells his soul to remain young, while a portrait of him grows old hidden away in a closet. I was bored watching the black and white film, until they showed horrific, but stunning inserted technicolor clips of the decaying portrait. That image kept me awake for many nights, and is probably the reason I’m cautious going into closets today.

Although I had seen movies with Bela Lugosi as Dracula on TV, I was never scared because they were in black and white and not the colors of the real world. When Hammer Films, in the UK, re-did the classics in all their bloody, technicolor horror, with believable actors, that all changed! Christopher Lee, who played in a series of Dracula Films…made me believe in Vampires! I never doubted for a minute that he could bite you and condemn you to a “life” of the undead!

One dark and stormy night in London, while I was staying with my friend, record producer Lou Reizner and his wife Pam. I’m in the kitchen writing a song with Scott English (“Bend Me, Shape Me”, “Mandy”). There’s a flash of lightning, and standing behind Scott’s chair is a frighteningly familiar face…Christopher Lee!

I must’ve turned white. Scott said, “What’s the matter man, you look like you’ve seen a ghost?” I motion for him to look behind his chair. When he sees Christopher, hovering above him, he falls to his knees and makes the sign of the cross with two spoons. Lou Reizner starts laughing, when his unfazed friend Chris looks down at Scott and says, “Nice meeting you too!”

From the forthcoming book, “I Did It For A Song”…”If You Don’t like ’60s, ’70s music, you can kiss my past!”

And now in no particular order here are THE TOP HALLOWEEN MUSIC VIDEOS!

    Did Christopher Lee do very much outside the horror genre? He was a fine actor; I’d hate to think that, like Bela, he got so deep into horror that he couldn’t get out.


    • Count Dooku in Star Wars. Saruman in Lord of the Rings. Scaramanga in James Bond: The Man With The Golden Gun. The Dentist in Charlie and the Chocolate Facrtory (Tim Burton version). The Jabberwock in Alice in Wonderland (Tim Burton version).


  2. Monster Mash – that’s fantastic!

    Thanks for posting that. My two boys loved it and it brought back memories of my childhood!

    awesome…

  3. Annie Oakes Says:

    It may not be one of the scariest, but Michael Jackson’s music video of Thriller is one of my favourite fun Halloween videos of all time!


  4. Neon Venus Art Theatre
    Here’s a little underground Halloween music video Catwoman inspired….

    from Neon Venus

    I wish I would have located your web-site quicker! I had about 25% of what I was looking for and your website has that, and the rest of what I had to have to complete my research. Thank you and keep up the good work!

  6. crisis Says:

    10 of your links have been removed from youtube


  7. Cool list, though some of your links have been taken off of youtube.
    Here’s a good Halloween folk video from Matthew John, Jr.

  8. mike Says:

    I recently stumbled across an amazing 80’s cult horror-style short film/music video that some genius girl apparently wrote and directed by herself as well as wrote the song. Pretty Freaking awesome for their supposed budget of $300.00. Looks pretty much like a normal music video with a “Thriller” movie-style intro: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0IZVrjRJGWc


  9. Here is my favorite Halloween song, especially for children:

    “Halloween Night” by The Little Blue Globe Band


  10. How about The Tooners’ SEANCE video?
