Halloween Party Music: A Playlist

Since Halloween is just around the corner, I thought it would be about time to compile a list of Halloween music. Now, I really hate cheap Halloween music. What I want is something you can dance to and have a hoppin' party with, but still be on the spooky side. Basically, what you WON'T find on this list are songs like: "The Monster Mash," Bach's "Toccata and Fugue in D-minor," and "One-Eyed, Purple, People-Eater," and other somewhat childish songs. This list includes some oldies, instrumentals, jazz, pop, industrial, rock, psychobilly, and...well... just a bit of everything. I encourage you to explore some of the artists you find. I left out a lot of equally good songs just for the sake of fitting everything in on this list.

You can access the complete list here on Youtube: Halloween Party Playlist

  1. Thanks for sharing information about this Halloween music party. Last year, I arranged Halloween’s party with my friends at a private venue Houston TX. We did many awesome scary things and all had rocking time together.
