Popdust's Spooktacular Halloween Playlist

Are you tasked with hosting a Halloween party this year? Let us help you with the music.

Howl you doing boys and girls? What's up, my witches?

Spooky season is drawing nearer, and with Halloween falling on a Thursday this year, it means that there is only one weekend to curate a spooktacular party playlist, and one opportunity to throw a fa-boo-lous Halloween party. It is no easy task, but if you want your guests to shake their BOOty, eat, drink, and be scary all night long, Popdust has just the playlist that will give your friends pumpkin' to talk about.

Itsy Bitsy Spider by Carly Simon

Have you ever heard such an elegant and moving interpretation of this spooky nursery rhyme? In this version, I wasn't rooting for the rain to "wash the spider out"; instead, Simon's mash up of the nursery rhyme with her hit "Comin Around Again" paints a darker picture. "I know nothing stays the same, but if you're willing to play the game, it's coming around again," Simon sings. The Spider's journey is a complex one: He is tenacious in his dream of scaling the water spout and is an inspiration to us all. "Nothing stays the same," little Spider, keep climbing. One day, you may just turn your dream into a reality. It's a reminder of our mortality and serves as the perfect song to kick off the night as your guests eat hors d'oeuvres and pour their first cup of spiked punch.

Brian May is giving mad props to Adam Lambert.

The veteran Queen guitarist has heaped praise on the absolutely fabulous 32-year-old, saying he more than matches up to the band’s previous singer—the late great Freddie Mercury—whose platform shoes Lambert first stepped into back in 2012.

"They're difficult songs to sing, Queen songs. There's too much range," May said during an interview with Japan’s Universal Music—which you can watch below.

"So many people can't sing them in the original key—even if they are good singers, Adam comes along, [and] he can do it easy.

"He can do it in his sleep! He can sing higher than even Freddie could in a live situation.

"So I think Freddie would look at this guy and think, 'Hmm… Yeah. Okay.' There would be a kind of, 'Hmm ... You bastard. You can do this.'"

May also raved about Lambert’s awesome stage presence and showmanship.

“[Adam] doesn't have to try. He is a natural, in the same way that Freddie was." May said. "We didn't look for this guy, [but] suddenly he's there, and he can sing all of those lines. ... He doesn't imitate; he just does his own thing."

Anyone who ever doubted that Adam Lambert would have the vocal chops to sing with the remaining members of Queen, have a look at this YouTube video.

The American Idol star gave a spine-tingling rendition of the rock classic Somebody To Love during a recent concert on the band’s North American tour.

Filmed in Las Vegas, Nevada, it shows the 32-year-old at his glam rock best alongside original Queen members Roger Taylor and Brian May.

Wearing make-up, studded leather sleeves with gold tassels flowing from his arms he gave a performance that the late Freddie Mercury would have loved.

Camp, brash and witty, the singer complains of being hot during the July 5 performance at The Joint in Las Vegas. Clutching a Spanish-style fan in one hand and a gold microphone, he says in the video: “[Does] anybody ever feel like that? They can just douse themselves in champagne and diamonds and pretty things to get away from it all?”

He then cheekily adds: “Can I get an amen? We’re at the church of Glam Rock now!”
