Michael Jackson’s “Scream” Album

Michael Jackson’s Scream Album

Lauren Williamson, Entertainment and Features Writer

Michael Jackson’s estate released a Halloween themed album titled “Scream,” just in time to play those spooky tracks for Halloween night.  With Halloween crawling around the corner, what is the season without grooving to the “Thriller?”

The spooky album features 13 hit songs from Michael himself. Songs that feature the Jackson Five, including “This Place Hotel” and “Torture,” are nice throwback pieces to have on the album. The album features Michael’s collaboration with Rockwell called, “Somebody’s Watching Me.” The setlist continues with classics like “Dirty Diana,” “Ghosts,” (the duet he sang with his sister Janet Jackson) “Scream,” and the most famous Halloween anthem of all “Thriller.” The songs perfectly set that ghoulish mood.

There is a bonus track on the album, “Blood on the Dance Floor X Dangerous,” which is a new remix created by The White Panda. The remix consists of a smooth mashup of the songs “Blood on the Dance Floor” and “Dangerous.” The song choices on this album grasped the theme for this time of year and would be the perfect Halloween playlist at any ghostly party!  The danceable songs just make you want to whisk yourself off into the bone-chilling night.
