...are there any songs that remind you of fall???

Today's BlogHer NaBloPoMo prompt is...

"Winter and summer are two seasons that have songs clearly associated with the time period. But are there any songs that remind you of fall?"

Well, no.

Unless "Dragula" by Rob Zombie counts.

Yeah.  Love that song.  Yeah.  I'm a Christian.  Yeah.  God forgives me.  I am not without sin.

{but that is for another blog post}

So I Google-d alllll sorts of  "Fall Playlists" and "Autumn Music"...

And it all sucked. I looked at the "Top Ten Halloween Songs" according to Billboard...

Guess what made the list???  Yeah, Rob Zombie baby.

Here is the list, according to Billboard...

10. "Dragula" - Rob Zombie

My favorite.  Brings back memories to an incredible time in my life.  Enough. Said.

9. "A Nightmare on My Street" by D.J. Jazzy Jeff and the Fresh Prince 
I couldn't find an official (decent) video for this one.  I thought I had forgotten this song, but remembered it once it started playing.

8. "Somebody's Watching Me" by Rockwell

Totally freaked me out in fifth grade.  I think this should have been ranked higher {but not number one, that would go to Mr. Zombie}

7. "Runnin' with the Devil" by Van Halen

This just happens to be Big Daddy's very most favorite song of all time.  Old school Van Halen is his very most favorite band of all time.  I was five when this song came out.

6. "Don't Fear the Reaper" by Blue Oyster Cult

Yeah.  I could never "got" Blue Oyster Cult.  I *think* I might have seen them in concert in the nineties.  Not my thing. 

5. "Highway to Hell" by AC/DC

I don't necessarily think of this as a Halloween song, per se.  I just think of it as a classic song.

4. "Werewolves of London" by Warren Zevon

This is one of those songs that I hear, but never really remember.

3. "Ghostbusters" by Ray Parker Jr. 

This song is now running through your head.  You're welcome.

2. "Monster Mash" by Bobby 'Boris' Pickett & the Crypt-Kickers

Ugh.  I can not STAND this song...or any song from that era, for that matter.

1. "Thriller" by Michael Jackson

Any surprise here???  Not a bad number one choice.

So, there you have it...Billboard's Top Ten Halloween Songs.  Do you agree with the rankings?  What would you have changed or added?  You know my feelings.  Rob Zombie would have been number one...Thriller number two, and that creepy fifth grade music video {which isn't so creepy anymore} would be three.

What songs remind you of Halloween?  Which songs remind you of Fall?

{love to all}
