Tony’s Playlist: Halloween Songs

October 31, 2015 by Tony Schwartz

Now, don’t get me wrong: Bobby “Borris” Pickett’s “The Monster Mash” and Michael Jackson’s “Thriller” are GREAT Halloween songs. But they are overplayed so much in the buildup to Halloween night. So, for your Halloween enjoyment, I present an insanely large playlist of music that will work for any Halloween-themed party. Some of the songs play off of the Halloween theme, others are just plain dark and moody.


So, in no particular order, let’s get spooky:

Danny Elfman – “This is Halloween”

The Ministry – “Every Day is Halloween”

DJ Jazzy Jeff and the Fresh Prince – “Nightmare On My Street”

The Addams Family – “The Addams Family Theme”

Rockwell – “Somebody’s Watching Me”

Ray Parker, Jr. – “Ghostbusters”

Rocky Horror Picture Show Soundtrack – “Time Warp”

Oingo Boingo – “Dead Man’s Party”

Warren Zevon – “Werewolves of London”

Steve Miller Band – “Abracadabra”

Screamin’ Jay Hawkins – “I Put a Spell On You”

Rihanna – “Disturbia”

Van Halen – “Runnin’ With The Devil”

INXS – “Devil Inside”

AC/DC – “Highway To Hell”

Johnny Cash – “(Ghost) Riders in the Sky”

Stevie Wonder – “Superstition”

Blue Oyster Cult – “(Don’t Fear) The Reaper”

Santana – “Black Magic Woman”

Creedence Clearwater Revival – “Bad Moon Rising”
