Her enchanting voice haunts you after every song she sings. How fitting that she puts a spell on you and your friends for Halloween.

I love this song any time of year but, it seems especially fitting for Halloween.

The actual music video is buried because New Line Cinema sued the duo for using Freddy Krueger's image and made them include a disclaimer that the song had nothing to do with the 4th Nightmare On Elm Street, since the two were released at the same time.

Another song that I love and I couldn't tell you why. The lyrics always keep you guessing if he's the psycho killer that he's singing about- my bet is yes, how about you?

This song is fun to play if you have a haunted house and builds a great sense of suspense.
For every holiday, there's a cheesy song and for Halloween, that one is the Ghostbusters theme. You won't want to admit it but, it's fun to sing along.
One of the best videos of all time and this song makes everyone dance but, it's perfect for Halloween. You should watch the full version of this video to help set the mood mwahahahahaa....RIP MJ!

Well, it has werewolves in the title and it's a fun party song.

The ultimate Halloween song of all time.

"Now the d and the a and the m/And the n and the a/ And the t and the i-o-n/ Lose your face, lose your name/ Then get fitted for a suit of flame" This songs called hell and talks about the afterlife.

I'd add Blue Oyster Cult's "Don't Fear the Reaper" and Black Sabbath's "Black Sabbath" for good measure. Can't forget about the metal on Halloween.

Def agree...I wrote about that in my intro at first but, space was limited so I had to leave it out. I was hoping to inspire you guys to make your own list ;p

Zappa always played one of his songs on halloween and the name is fitting -The Torture never stops. -
