   October, the month of tricks and treats, pumpkins, and candy corn. October is one of my favorite months out of the year. Nothing gets me into the spirit more than music (and maybe a bit of tasteful decorating). Here are five albums I think are perfect for the Halloween season.

5: David Bowie- Diamond Dogs

Diamond Dogs is Bowie’s eighth studio album. It paints a dark and grim post apocalyptic setting, where chaos reigns. Despite these themes, the album is a fun listen and always gets me in a spooky mood. Some notable tracks are “Sweet Thing”, “Candidate”, “Rock ‘N’ Roll With Me”, and “Rebel Rebel”.

 

4: Queen- Innuendo

Innuendo is the fourteenth studio album by Queen, and lead singer Freddie Mercury’s last. The album has its light moments, but overall touches upon much darker themes. Tracks like “I’m going slightly mad” and “Innuendo” are dark and gloomy enough to make it onto my list.

 

3: Gorillaz- Demon Days

Demon Days is the second studio album by the virtual band, Gorillaz. This album paints a world falling into chaos, greatly inspired by the political tension of a post 9/11 America. This album is a gloomy rollercoaster, with an intro resembling that of some sort of messed up Disney ride. It feels like a trip through an entire night, and definitely makes my list. Some notable tracks would be “O Green World”, “Last Living Souls”, and “Kids With Guns”.

 

2: Richard O’Brien’s The Rocky Horror Show Soundtrack

Whether it is the movie, or stage production soundtrack, Rocky Horror is a staple of my Halloween experience. Something about the strange story it tells fits the October mood perfectly. Notable tracks would be “The Time Warp”, “Over at The Frankenstein Place”, and “Super Heroes”.

 

1: Black Sabbath- Black Sabbath

This entire album is gloomy, edgy, and dark. The main track that got this album on the list was the title track “Black Sabbath”. The guitar riff on this track screams Halloween and Ozzy’s haunting vocals help the track even more.

   Expect more Halloween themed festivities on The Skyhawk Flight. I’m Tyler Parker, and this has been my Top 5 albums fit for Halloween.
