Top 10 Indie Halloween Songs
It's officially October: cue the handful of predictable songs reserved for Halloween every year!
No disrespect to MJ's "Thriller," Stevie Wonder's "Superstition," or Bobby Pickett's "Monster Mash," but we're a little tired of the typical "spooky" jams, so we found some alternatives.
