At the Zombie Dance
Nobody moves
They tap their toes
Yeah, wiggle their ears to get in the groove

Thriller – Michael Jackson

Released in 1983 on the album Thriller

The King of Pop took the fun of being scared to great effect. More so, he includes how guys enjoy watching the ladies scream and squirm, grabbing our arms and hiding their faces in our chests.

Lyrics To Inspire You:

From the beast about to strike
You know it’s thriller, thriller night
You’re fighting for your life inside a killer
Thriller tonight

Black Magic Woman – Santana

Released in 1970 on the album Abraxas

Legendary guitarist Santana can’t deal with the idea the holder of his heart could care less. He’s begging her and it’s doing no good. We have to wonder what Carlos did next.

Lyrics To Inspire You:

Got your spell on me baby
Yes, you got your spell on me baby
Turning my heart into stone
I need you so bad, magic woman

I Put a Spell on You – Screamin’ Jay Hawkins

Released in 1956 on the album At Home with Screamin’ Jay Hawkins

The screaming part is apropos. Hawkins spends most of the song almost screeching. It really works, with the singer trying to convince himself he’s got them under his thumb.

Lyrics To Inspire You:

I put a spell on you
Because you’re mine
You know I love you
I love you

Abracadabra – Steve Miller Band

Released in 1982 on the album Abracadabra

It’s all about the magic with Steve Miller’s 80s hit. He’s burning, can’t cool down, and wants to reach out and grab her. We wonder if the girl even knows his name.

Lyrics To Inspire You:

You make me hot, you make me sigh
You make me laugh, you make me cry
Keep me burning for your love

Disturbia – Rihanna

Released in 2008 on the album Good Girl Gone Bad

Songstress Rihanna has fallen so hard she can’t stop acting strangely. She’s alone and isolated, and the simplest task or thought seems senseless. She waits for the object of her affection to rescue her.

Lyrics To Inspire You:

It’s a thief in the night to come and grab you
It can creep up inside you and consume you
A disease of the mind, it can control you
I feel like a monster

Touch-a, Touch-a, Touch Me – Susan Sarandon

Released in 1975 on the album The Rocky Horror Picture Show

The Rocky Horror Picture Show is filled with great songs, but this one stands out for pure raunchiness. As lusty as all get out, Oscar-winning actress Sarandon wants someone to take her body and turn it into a sex toy. Oh, the humanity.

Lyrics To Inspire You:

Touch-a touch-a touch-a touch me, I wanna be dirty
Thrill me, chill me, fulfil me
Creature of the night

Witchcraft – Frank Sinatra

Released in 1957 as a single

Who’d’ a thunk Mr. Ring-a-Ding could end up on a list of spooky love songs? But here’s Ol’ Blue Eyes and a full orchestra cutting loose on what it’s like to have his stamina broken down by a woman who knows exactly what to do.

Lyrics To Inspire You:

When you arouse the need in me
My heart says: yes, indeed in me
Proceed with what your leading me to

Love Song For a Vampire – Annie Lennox

Released in 1992 on the album Bram Stoker’s Dracula

As the theme to Francis Ford Coppola’s Gothic “Dracula,” singer-songwriter Annie Lennox composed a dark tale about longing and acceptance. It’s been covered many times, but Lennox’s version remains a haunting ode.

Lyrics To Inspire You:

Oh loneliness, oh hopelessness
To search the ends of time
For there is in all the world
No greater love than mine

Batman, Wolfman, Frankenstein or Dracula – The Diamonds

Released in 1959 as a single

This song is a frothy and pop-oriented little ditty. It tells us the story of a young girl who can’t get her juices running unless a horror movie plays in the background.

Lyrics To Inspire You:

She doesn’t go for parking down in Lovers’ Lane
And lots of moonlight doesn’t drive this girl insane
She thinks that dreamy music really is a bore
But I found out what she’s looking for

Nobody Likes You When You’re Dead – Zombina And The Skeletones

Released in 2002 on the album Taste the Blood of Zombina and the Skeletones

Halloween deserves a ‘he has done me wrong’ song. While the subject’s about being dumped, the lyrics are light and playful. And clever. “If I still had eyes, I would surely cry” is one of many great lyrics.

Lyrics To Inspire You:

And if I still had eyes
Then I would surely cry
Nobody likes you when you’re dead
And that’s the story of my life

They’re Coming to Take Me Away – Napoleon XIV

Released in 1966 on the album They’re Coming to Take Me Away, Ha-Haaa!

Love is a warped sickness. This record proves it. The story of a man driven utterly insane by rejection is hilariously and deliciously chilling. What really twists is the lead is talking about his dog.

Lyrics To Inspire You:

I cooked your food
I cleaned your house
And this is how you pay me back
For all my kind unselfish loving deeds

Hello – Lionel Richie

Released in 1983 on the album Can’t Slow Down

It’s essentially a song about a teacher stalking his blind student. He adores her, but according to the song, they haven’t even met. Ladies, imagine a stranger starting the first meeting with ‘I love you.’

Lyrics To Inspire You:

‘Cause I wonder where you are and I wonder what you do
Are you somewhere feeling lonely or is someone loving you?
Tell me how to win your heart, for I haven’t got a clue
But let me start by saying, I love you

Kim – Eminem

Released in 2000 on the album The Marshall Mathers LP

Violent and profane, this rap song is powered by Eminem’s troubling lyrics. It is a performance dripping in love that’s frustrating, suffocating, disturbing, and dangerous. It’s a sick, great love story.

Lyrics To Inspire You:

So long, b****, you did me so wrong
I don’t wanna go on
Living in this world without you

You’re 16 (You’re Beautiful & You’re Mine) – Ringo Starr

Released in 1973 on the album Ringo

Is that a former Beatle putting the moves on a minor? Why, yes, yes it is. It’s a fun song on its surface. It’s fortunate when we hear it, we never look below that surface.

Lyrics To Inspire You:

You walked out of my dreams, and into my arms
Now you’re my angel divine
You’re sixteen, you’re beautiful and you’re mine

Bad Things – Jace Everett

Released in 2005 on the album Jace Everett

The theme from the HBO hit “True Blood,” a show about all types of vampire love, is quite ethereal with its blatant overtones of lust and no concern for consequences.

Lyrics To Inspire You:

I don’t know who you think you are
But before the night is through
I wanna do bad things with you

Sally’s Song – Catherine O’Hara and Chris Boardman

Released in 1993 on the album The Nightmare Before Christmas OST

Tim Burton’s “The Nightmare Before Christmas,” is yet another song by composer Danny Elfman that lingers long after it’s finished. It’s a touching ode to longing and fearing someone you care for will never reciprocate.

Lyrics To Inspire You:

Try as I may, it doesn’t last
And will we ever end up together
No, I think not, it’s never to become
For I am not the one

Monster – Lady Gaga

Released in 2009 on the album The Fame Monster

Lady Gaga reminds us of how sparks can fly at any moment. The artist claims there are a lot of personal influences in the lyrics, but “Monster” is ultimately about a hot kiss in public.

Lyrics To Inspire You:

Look at him, look at me
That boy is bad and honestly
He’s a wolf in disguise
But I can’t stop staring in those evil eyes

Black No. 1 (Little Miss-Scare-All) – Type O Negative

Released in 1993 on the album Bloody Kisses

“Loving you is like loving the dead.” Goth has never gotten greater representation in pop music. He’s in love with a dark chick and that’s great. As if the lyrics weren’t enough, they throw in a sample of the Addams Family theme.

Lyrics To Inspire You:

She’s got a date at midnight
With Nosferatu
Oh baby, Lily Munster
Ain’t got nothing on you

Henry Lee – Nick Cave and P.J. Harvey

Released in 1996 on the album Murder Ballads

When it comes to love and Nick Cave, someone’s getting hurt. In this one, there’s only one way to deal with unrequited love: take ’em out. It’s a simple shot video that tells a dark and tender story.

Lyrics To Inspire You:

I can’t get down and I won’t get down
And stay all night with thee
For the girl I have in that merry green land
I love far better than thee
