Hey Bees, I am throwing a big (adult) Halloween party and need some ideas on Halloween songs to play in the background.
I am NOT into “creepy sounds” or anything of the like… I have attempted this before and I got really irritated by hearing screaming and creaky steps and cackling in the background all night.
So far I’ve got…
1. Monster Mash – Bobby Boris Pickett
2. Thriller – MJ
3. Time Warp/Sweet Transvestite – from Rocky Horror
4. Little Red Riding Hood – Sam the Sham
5. Spooky – Zombies
6. Frankenstein’s Den – Hollywood Flames
7. Ghostbusters Theme
8. Purple People Eater
9. I Put A Spell On You – Screamin Jay Hawkins
And are there any Halloweenies out there who remember (WAY back in the day, I’m dating myself here…) a little black Halloween cassette tape that had songs like “Frankenstein’s Den” and “Graveyard Bells” and “Dead Man’s Crawl”…. ?? I am frantically searching for Graveyard Bells and Dead Man’s Crawl ALL OVER the internetz and can’t find a darn thing. Any help with this would be awesome.

@Pralines: I’m not going to be any help except to say Monster Mash is amazing. I used to borrow a RECORD of it from the library when I was teeny and dance around to it all night. 🙂 GREAT CHOICE.

I can’t help with the cassette, but what about Zombie by the cranberries?

@julies1949: I did, thanks. Was hoping for some input from a wider audience.

@Pralines: sorry, I did a quick check on Youtube and saw several songs that weren’t on your list so assumed you hadn’t checked there. My bad to assume anything.

i was going to suggest this is halloweeen also. marilyn manson does a cover of it, but (since i’m not a marilyn manson fan) i prefer the original version from the movie 🙂
i also found this top 10 halloween songs, in case you hadn’t seen it. there are a few good songs on there 🙂

@Pralines: I also get ideas from listening to the Pandora “Halloween Party Radio” station and write tunes down! Also I’ll be hooking up my ipod to a speaker and just pretty much play that channel to save some $ on downloading songs!
