MattFini's Halloween Top 10 Lists: Most Memorable End Credit Songs
2. The Ballard of Harry Warden (John McDermott)
From: My Bloody Valentine (1981)
Any time the original My Bloody Valentine comes up in conversation, the topic inevitably turns to the mysterious little ditty that haunts the end credits. For years, horror fans weren’t sure whom to credit the infectious little ballad to until the recent special edition DVD shed some light on the mystery. And now that we know, we raise a pick axe to John McDermott in salute. There’s nothing like ending on a high note, and Harry Warden’s folk song is almost as memorable as the slasher classic itself.
1. Man Behind the Mask (Alice Cooper)
From: Friday the 13th Part VI, Jason Lives (1986)
Probably the coolest horror song of all time … it’s about Jason freakin’ Voorhees, man! Cool lyrics and a rockin’ Kane Roberts guitar rift are topped with the classic ‘ki,ki,ki,ma,ma,ma’ to give the undying killer his own theme song. How can you not have this sucker on your iPod? And if you can’t get enough of Alice singing about slashers, track down his Tag, You’re It song for a double dose of knife-wielding goodness.
