Hocus Pocus 2 landed on Disney Plus on September 2022 and immediately caught the attention of all fans. The production prepared this sequel to the famous 1993 movie very carefully, the plot offered new interesting inputs to fans, and Disney viewers widely appreciated the soundtrack. One song, in particular, stands out: it’s the one in the movie opening, right after the credits. Its name is Skeleton Sam, and in this article, we will discover more about it.

Skeleton Sam: the spooky opening song in Hocus Pocus 2
Skeleton Sam is a song released in 2019 by the Halloween music project LVCRFT. You can find the official video below.
LVCRFT is a music project specialized in creating spooky songs. As presented on their Youtube channel, “while LVCRFT maintains some anonymity with spooky pseudonyms like Lil Punkin, DeepKutz, Norman Crates, Scary Ana Grande, Evil McQueen, DejaVudu and Count Trackula, to name a few, their ‘day jobs’ have seen them concoct iconic records for Beyonce (Halo), Rihanna (SOS), Mark Ronson (Bang Bang Bang), Katy Perry (Teenage Dream), Dua Lipa, Madonna, Lizzo, Charli XCX, Mariah Carey, Amy Winehouse & countless others.” Its mission is to spread the culture of spooky Halloween music as a style that doesn’t necessarily need to be framed into the Halloween season.
Skeleton Sam is among their most popular tracks, and obviously, it wasn’t written on purpose for a movie soundtrack. But the song is the perfect background for the moment of Hocus Pocus 2, where the plot moves to the present: its young mood and fresh, dancey rap become a symbol of modernity.
Skeleton Sam is the character protagonist of a song that wants to make you dance while describing a situation in the cemetery, mentioning werewolves, ghosts, zombies, and the whole collection of Halloween symbols. The lyrics in the chorus are:
Dance, dance, dance
The way he move you in a
Trance, trance, trance
Ooh he make you wanna
Dance, dance, dance
Until you can’t
Shaking every bone like Skeleton Sam
Skeleton Sam is the perfect modern song, young and full of energy, to inaugurate the part of Hocus Pocus 2 that brings the plot into 2022.
