You’re hosting a party on Halloween. The decorations are up, the costumes are ready, you’ve got some games planned for the day and, hell, even the food looks spook-a-licious! Aren’t we missing something here? Of course! The music. The guests aren’t going to entertain themselves. So here are 10 songs that you should absolutely have in your Halloween playlist.

  1. Thriller – Michael Jackson
  2. Ghostbusters – Ray Parker Jr.
  3. Bring Me To Life – Evanescence
  4. Fire of Unknown Origin – Blue Oyster Cult
  5. She Wolf – Shakira
  6. Disturbia – Rihanna
  7. Night Of The Living Dead – The Misfits
  8. Zombie – The Cranberries
  9. Dead – Pixies
  10. Halloween – The Misfits
  11. Monster Mash – Bobby ‘Boris’ Pickett
  12. Godzilla – Blue Oyster Cult
  13. Voodoo Child – Jimi Hendrix
  14. Howlin’ For You – The Black Keys
  15. True Blood- Justin Timberlake
  16. Jack The Ripper – Screaming Lord Sutch
  17. Black Widow – Iggy Azalea and Rita Ora
  18. Dinner With Drac – Zacherele
  19. Transylvania Terror Train – Captain Clegg and the Night Creatures
  20. Sympathy For The Devil

While these 20 tracks should definitely not be missed, you could play some creepy introductory music to get the party started and allow your guests to talk. There are many eerie piano versions of Beethoven’s Fur Elise, which might be ideal for setting the mood. Some artists like The Misfits and Blue Oyster Cult seem to have been repeated in our list, but that’s because they focussed ao heavily on the occult and dominated the ‘creepy’ genre.

So that’s that! We hope you like our mix of old and new, and that our numbers can get Wolfman to go ” Awoooooogaaaa!”. Happy Halloween!
