Some people love Christmas, and start playing Christmas carols very early in the year (there is definitely a time when playing Christmas carols is too early). Anyone who knows me knows that I love Halloween. To get myself even more excited, I made a Halloween list on Spotify (and no, I don’t just listen to it in the fall).
If you’re planning a Halloween party, or just love Halloween, a playlist of fun, spooky Halloween music is a must. Here are my must-have Halloween songs.
- “Monster Mash” -Bobby “Boris Pickett
- “Thriller” -Michael Jackson
- “Ghostbusters” -Ray Parker, Jr.
- “I Put A Spell On You” -Creedence Clearwater Revival
- There is also a Marilyn Manson version of this that I enjoy, but it may not be for everyone
- There is a version on Spotify from Freak On a Leash, that mirrors the version from “Hocus Pocus”
- “This is Halloween” -The Citizens of Halloween (from “The Nightmare Before Christmas)
- There is also a Marilyn Manson version of this
- “Forever Halloween” -The Maine
- “Halloween” -Misfits
- “Halloween All Year” -The Orwells
- “Poor Jack” – Nightmare Before Christmas
