I just put together a Halloween music playlist and after four or so hours of research and testing the list at a recent Halloween-birthday party, thought I would share my favorite songs from the list with you:
- Addams Family by The TV Gang
- Black Magic Woman by Santana
- The Devil in Disguise by Elvis Presley
- Monster Mash by Bobby “Boris” Pickett
- Yo Ho (A Pirate’s Life for Me) by Disney Characters
- Love Potion #9 by The Clovers
- Purple People Eater by Sheb Wooley
- Witchy Woman by The Eagles
- Jaws (theme) by The Essential
- Grim, Grinning Ghosts by Ghosts (the Haunted Mansion music from Disneyland)
- The Devil Went Down to Georgia by The Charlie Daniels Band
- Ghostbusters by Ray Parker Jr.
- Poor Unfortunate Souls from the Disney Villains CD
- Witch Doctor by Sha Na Na
- The Haunted House by Walt Disney Sound Effects
- Twilight Zone by The Ghost Doctors
If your party is for adults, you can add in all of those Halloween scary sounds filled with screeching, screaming, rattling, thundering, etc., as well as the themes from the horror movies like Halloween, Friday the 13th and Psycho.
If the party is for kids, add in television and Disney theme songs like Scooby Doo, Pink Panther, Cruella De Vil, etc.
Enjoy, and happy Halloween!
