With 2018 rapidly flying by, it’s no surprise that Halloween is right around the corner! For some, Halloween is the perfect excuse to dress up and take the world by storm, however, for many burlesque performers out there, who need no excuse to dress up, Halloween provides the ideal opportunity to showcase our spooky routines. Here at Love You Burlesque HQ, we love a spooky soundtrack and if you’re looking for the perfect song to take to the stage in your Halloween-style glad-rags, then look no further – here are our Top 5 Spooky Burlesque Soundtracks…
I Put a Spell On You – Nina Simone
Having choreographed our own routine to this spectacularly spooky song, I Put a Spell On You remains a firm favourite with our Love You Burlesque lovelies. Subtle in its scary lyrics and sensual music, the song tells a story of a woman seducing her partner – with or without a love spell or potion? Well, that’s up to you to decide…
Bad Things – Jace Everett
Not likely to send shivers down your spine at first listen, Bad Things by Jace Everett provides the title song for the vampire TV series True Blood. Give it a second listen with that in mind and your inner vamp will surely feel the need to make an appearance.
Disturbia – Rihanna
Rihanna’s Disturbia is the perfect song for a Halloween routine, particularly when you consider that some of the first lyrics are:
“It’s a thief in the night
To come and grab you
It can creep up inside you
And consume you”
Scary enough for you?
The Ghostbusters Theme Song
If your spooky burlesque routine is more comedic than chilling, then we couldn’t think of a better song for you than this. The iconic Ghostbusters theme song makes for a fantastically funny performance. We love this performance by Titsalina Bumsquash!
Spooky – Dusty Springfield
If there’s anything that we love here at LYB, it’s a bit of 1960s glamour – particularly when it’s combined with the dulcet tones of Dusty Springfield. Spooky details a relationship with spooky kinda boy – do you think you can be his spooky kinda gal? Well, that’s up to you!
