Some picks:

In regards to Halloween by Aqua all I can think is the Barbie song when I hear it, just kills that scary mood.

The best has to be Haunted based on a short story written by Ben Mood  which was posted onto the band’s EvBoards (

Hurt by Johnny CashThe pain of his wife’s death is evident in his voice and words…. Nothing more to say but listen and cry

The Hunting For Witches beginning is a bit different.. the song was influenced by the terrorist attacks on London’s transportation system in July 2005, the September 11, 2001 attacks in the United States, and the media’s reaction to those attacks.

Hamlet soundtrack  from the 1996 film version of Shakespeare’s Hamlet directed by Kenneth Branagh.

u (To be or not to be)

(The Ghost)

Hut on Fowl’s Legs was written to honor the artist Viktor Hartmann after his sudden death.  The piece is a collection of 10 works through an imaginary tour of an art collection. The 9th being “Hut on Fowl’s Legs” which was is the name of a painting

Hell by the Squirrel Nut Zipper .. well this is certainly a different version of Hell and sounds way cooler.  As for the name….a newspaper related the story of a highly intoxicated man who climbed a tree one night, refusing to come down even after authorities arrived.  When finally asked why he refused the man blame his actions on Nut Zippers” a southern term for a variety of old bootlegs moonshine

And this has to be the best one ever, remember this from your childhood, The Hearse Song also called “The Worms go in”. The song dates back to at least World War I where it was a sung by American and British soldiers and eventually published in Alvin Schwartz’s Scary Stories to Tell in the Dark.

“Do you ever think as a hearse goes by,
that you may be the next to die?
They wrap you up in a big white sheet
From your head down to your feet.

They put you in a big black box,
And cover you up with dirt and rocks.
All goes well for about a week,
Then your coffin begins to leak.
The worms crawl in, the worms crawl out,
The worms play pinochle on your snout.
They eat your eyes, they eat your nose,
They eat the jelly between your toes.
A big green worm with rolling eyes,
Crawls in your stomach and out your eyes.
Your stomach turns a slimy green,
And pus pours out like whipping cream.
You spread it on a slice of bread,
And that’s what you eat then you are dead.”
