Top 10 Halloween Songs: Tickets There Vs Billboard.com

Posted in General Tickets There Blog, Music, Music Video with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on October 31, 2012 by Tickets There

Billboard.com have a list of their Top 10 Halloween songs and we’re after tripping across it (through tireless searching on Google of course…..ok, so I typed Halloween Songs and it was result number 1 or 2 or something. Well, I didn’t see you clicking it!). The list isn’t bad, has the videos etc. Included, but they’re not very terrifying are they? I mean, no-body gets scared when they hear ‘Don’t Fear the Reaper’ by Blue Oyster Cult or ‘Highway To Hell’by AC/DC. No, they rock out and we feel a Halloween hits list has got to scare the living sh*t out of you. So nappies in hand, let’s see if old Tickets There (with our charming manners, sexy good looks and desperate need for nicotine) can do better.

10: Halloween Theme Song’ John CarpenterWell where else would you start? The soundtrack to 1978’s Halloween still remains on the of the atmospheric and intimidating ever released. The opening notes immediately remind you of good old Michal Myers and his personal demons and family issues. Of course, there was no Frasier Crane in 1978, these days everything would be worked out on the couch.

9:  ‘I Love The Dead’Alice Cooper – Alice Cooper is Halloween for music. The original shock rocker spooked more minds than …. SATAN! Alice is your nightmare and all the things that are dark, eerie and sinister. He is the bogey man so trick or treaters be good or  Alice is stealing all your candy.

8: ‘Feed My Frankenstein’  Alice Cooper – You didn’t think there’d only be one Alice in my list? did you? Didn’t I just get through saying that Alice is all things sinister and evil…etc,etc? Well anyway – TT has decided to pass up Talking Heads ‘Psycho Killer’ and the theme songs from Exorcist and Psycho to include this so you best listen and listen good.

7: ‘I Put A Spell on You’ Screamin Jay Hawkins – Need a good witchy number for Halloween – look no further. Except, we’re not including Screamin’ Jay (no offense), but we find Bette Midler’s version from Hocus Pocus much more appropriate.

6: ‘Bark At The Moon’ OzzY – A little panic, a little thrill – Bark At The Moon is a savage Ozzy tune from a mediocre album. Diary of a Madman and Blizzard of Ozz really cemented the mans reputation, but no-one can take away from this tune. Creeeeeeppppyyy.

5: ‘Ghostbusters’ Ray Parker Jr. We’ll admit, Billboard had this one right. No Halloween would be complete without an airing of Ray parker’s iconic Ghostbusters tune. Along with Bull Murray’s comedy, Dan Aykroyd’s stumbling, loveable silliness, Harold Ramis’ staunch strictness and Ernie Hudson’s total disbelief at the crap he landed himself in – Ray’s song turned Ghostbusters into the most loveable ghost film of all time. On that note, Ghostbusters 1 & II have just been added to this week’s viewing list.

4: ‘This Is Halloween’ Marilyn Manson – Manson is in by the skin of his good graces. While the original is far more fitting as it embraces silliness and fun, creepiness and ghoulishness – it must be said that Manson did a good job, so why not try something new…ish?

3: ‘Black Sabbath’ Black Sabbath Slayer’s ‘Reign In Blood’ was just replaced by this choice. Easily the most terrifying, dark heavy metal song ever recorded by man. All hail the mighty Sabbath and keep an eye on the blog over the next few minutes for something else Sabbath related.

2: ‘Thriller’ Michael Jackson – Obvious? Maybe, but it just has to be there – and it’s still amazing.

1: ‘The Monster Mash’ Bobby Boris Pickett – The greatest Halloween song of all time. What more can be said?

Think we missed anything? Leave your feedback and discuss. In the mean time, I have a scary halloween everyone…….

Posted in Gig Listing, Music with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , on October 15, 2012 by Tickets There
The Gypsy Rose needs a bit of good cheer after a very tough week last week for both staff and customers. The sad passing of LJ Aherne won’t soon be forgotten, but if Mr Long John was around he’d be the first person to get everyone in good spirits. The task will now fall to the special Temple Street Hospital fundraiser being run by a few of the regulars on the bank holiday Sunday.

Halloween is almost upon us, so whether you’re a confirmed or closet rocker, here’s one for your diary which you simply can’t miss! A night of classics from AC/DC, The Doors, Led Zeppelin, The Beatles, and all your favourite rock bands, then bang your head into the early hours with the DJ playing all the way home… and it’s bank holiday weekend, so a Monday lie in for most of us is allowed! …

In addition to a night of full throttle rock anthems, there will be a prize draw and much more.

  • Doors will open at 8:30 PM,
  • All drinks are at the special price of €4 til 11, and..
  • Fancy dress is encouraged!
  • All proceeds from admission and prize draw will be donated to Temple Street Children’s University Hospital.
