Halloween Music Video Countdown

Hey there people!  My favorite holiday, Halloween, is coming up in just 10 days, so in celebration I decided to share a list of my top 10 favorite Vocaloid* horror songs.  I’m a huge anime/J-pop nerd, so I love Vocaloids to begin with, and the addition of horror just sweetens the deal 🙂  I plan to post one video per day, counting down to Halloween on the 31st.  So, without further ado, here is today’s addition to the list:

#1)  Bacterial Contamination (MathruP ft. Hatsune Miku)

The song is great, but the video absolutely MAKES it.  A must-watch!

#2)  Dream-Eating Monochrome Baku (Nem ft. Kagamine Len)

As a hopeless fangirl, I had to include something like this.  Len can be such a player XD

#3)  I’m Sorry I’m Sorry (Kikuo ft. Hatsune Miku)

Kikuo is another composer who does great horror/creepy stuff.  Trigger warning on this one, it’s pretty disturbing.

#4) Antichlorobenzene (Kagamine Rin and Len)

A little bit of existential creepiness for your viewing pleasure!

#5) Lonely Hide and Seek (IA)

Check out “How To Play Hide and Seek Alone” on Mr. Creepypasta’s channel for some background on this one (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VlODkjpupaU).

#6) The Fox’s Wedding (Gumi and Hatsune Miku)

If this isn’t disturbing, I don’t know what is!

#7) Mrs. Pumpkin’s Comical Dream (Hatsune Miku)

More trippy than scary, but perfect for Halloween!

#8) Grave-Sending Song (Kagamine Rin and Len)

Somehow Rin and Len always end up the villains of these things! XD

#9) Blood-Stained Switch (mothy ft. Mayu)

No VocaHorror list is complete without at least one mothy composition!

#10) Trick and Treat (Kagamine Rin and Len)

A traditionally Halloween-ish sort of song >;)

*For those of you who don’t know, Vocaloid is a singing synthesizer which allows users of the software to generate a singing voice by typing in lyrics and a melody. Different Vocaloid “singers” have their database of vocal fragments sampled from different people, and each has a (usually anime-style) character used as an avatar.  The current most popular Vocaloid is Hatsune Miku, and most of the other popular Vocaloids originate from Japan as well.  Vocaloid voices can often sound a bit metallic and overly high-pitched, but their accessibility and ease of use have generated a wellspring of musical creativity, innovation, and beautiful weirdness from independent creators on the web.
