Shortlist for Official Charts Pop Gem #81: Halloween
It’s Halloween weekend! And what better way to celebrate the imminent witching hour than get you guys to nominate your favourite Halloween-themed song for Pop Gem? We kept the theme fairly vague, don't worry…
We wanted your overlooked classics or big hits of yesteryear that needed some more love with a HALLOWEEN theme. It could be scary, spooky, a bit creepy, kinda nuts – whatever. As long as it was on the dark side and wouldn't feel out of place at a Halloween bash then it was in!
We were quite surprised by some of the songs you guys missed out, but it’s all up to you, so here are the 10 we picked for our shortlist. Who are you backing?
The final 10
