A short Halloween-inspired track with lots of synths. Inspired by Thriller by Michael Jackson.


Taking constructive criticism to help me figure out how to make this song ~2 to 3 minutes in duration.

The synths are awesome xD

Thank you! ^_^ I love synthesizers.

Funky, fun, and refreshingly unique!
Has a bit of a Genesis Sonic vibe too.
I love it, but it's a bit shorter than I was expecting.
Perhaps you could do a "verse" section with a strong drum rhythm variant and main synths only, then bring back the bass with the full chorus section at the end? Possibly repeat that part at the end with an added octave change in the synth? I would avoid key changes in this piece but that's just my opinion.
Anyway, awesome work!
Keep it up.

Thank you! People keep saying my music sounds like classic Sonic music and I just don't see it comparing my music to actual classic Sonic music. Maybe it's just the use of FM synths that people connect to the Genesis which people connect to Sonic. 🤔 The main influence here was Michael Jackson, especially with the chorus and drums. I'm not complaining; I love Sonic music! It's just interesting to hear people's takes on what sounds like what.

I'll keep working on the song, though it'll likely be completed long after Halloween is over. I've got tons of commission work to do with more on the way. I just really wanted to get something out for the spooky holiday season. Thank you for the advice! ^_^

Good job!

Nice, I don't like synth, but I do like this song

ade-syndicate responds:

I loooove synths, but I'm glad you like the song despite them!
