For Halloween I give a dinner party and I would like to make a playlist but I cannot find a lot of music that really fits the theme. So far I have Thriller-Michael Jackson and Seven Devils-Florence and the Machine. Can anyone help me?
Ghostbusters, Monster Mash, Werewolf in London...
I used to have a CD but can't find it. These songs were on it.
that is all you'll ever need for Halloween
Ok we'll it isn't like popular radio music that happens to be good for Halloween, its actual Halloween music, that is great for background music during a party of handing out treats. My fav albums are Gates of Delirium, 13th Hour, Out of the Darkness, and Vampyre: Symphonies from the Crypt.
If you want radio music for a party, I used to work at a Halloween store and some of my favs from the countless CD's we had of Halloween music were,
Bad Moon Rising by Credence Clearwater Revival
Devil went down to Georgia by Charlie Daniels Band
Ghostbusters by Ray Parker Jr
Monster Mash by Bobby "boris" picket and the crypt kickers
Somebody's Watching Me by Rockwell
Time Warp by Little Neil, Patricia Quinn and Richard O'Brian
Witch Doctor by Sha Na Na
Dead Man's Party by Oingo Boingo
The Adams Family Theme
Black Magic Woman by Santana
I Put a Spell on You by Credence Clearwater Revival
I hope those help Now it makes me want to listen to all those great Halloween songs again!
Try some classical music, too! Tchaikovsky is usually great for Halloween
Riboflavin by 45 Grave is one song that instantly makes you think 'halloween'. (well me, at least!)
Any Switchblade Symphony or Skunk Anansie song.
If you want something a little bit experimental, any horror punk band can work - Misfits, Murderdolls, Wednesday 13, etc
I just noticed iheartradio.com has several Halloween staions with music.
