“My favorite song to listen to during Halloween season is “Calling All the Monsters” by China Ann McClain. The thing I love most about this song is how its catchy and not as popular as most other songs. Disney songs go hard. When China says “oh yea aye, oh yea aye” it just speaks to my soul. The music video is great too as it has lots of fun scenes, like when all the monsters synchronize in their dance movements. In addition, the ending has such a plot twist too because china experienced all that monster madness but when she joins her sisters again back outside, she claims there was nothing going on inside the haunted house. The haunted knight’s armor is super cool too. Does thriller have that? no! it only has boring zombies and cliché werewolf movies. That’s why China continues to prosper”

“My favorite Halloween song is Thriller from Michael Jackson because I love the mysterious monstrous vibe it gives whenever I listen to it. When I first listened to this particular song I really liked the rhythm and how it has the power to drag me to the Halloween spirit. In addition, the iconic music video strangely attracts me as it illustrates the spooky side of Halloween”
