Halloween’s Biggest Hits


Holidays have unique soundtracks. Christmas has Nat King Cole’s “The Christmas Song (Chestnuts Roasting On An Open Fire)” and Mariah Carey’s “All I Want For Christmas Is You,” while Valentine’s Day sees play bumps for Stevie Wonder’s “I Just Called To Say I Love You” and Savage Garden’s “Truly Madly Deeply.”

But what about Halloween? To find out what’s played as we celebrate the most ghoulish day of the year, we dug into the data for tracks with the highest increase in plays on October 31 compared to a song’s average the rest of the year.

Songs That Receive the Greatest View Increases on Halloween

All songs on this list receive at least 10k average daily views throughout the year and received at least 2x the number of views on Halloween than they do on all other days in 2013, 2014, and 2015.

In first place: the timeless “Monster Mash,” recorded by Bobby “Boris” Pickett & The Crypt Kickers in 1962.
