Halloween Music

I spent this past weekend listening to Halloween music while decorating my house. Every year the Halloween festivities in my house starts in September and runs well past October 31st, so I need quite a bit of music to make it through this holiday season. I thought I would share with you my Halloween playlists (yes, I have more than one.... you're probably guessing right now that I'm a FREAK for Halloween) to get you through the holiday as well.

HALLOWEEN PARTY
  • Anything from the Rocky Horror Picture Show
  • Monster Mash of course
  • Ghost Busters
  • The entire Nightmare Before Christmas soundtrack
  • That Old Black Magic
  • Witchcraft.... CLASSIC

CANDY GIVING - aside from the GREAT creepy sound clip cd's (creeking doors, witches laughing, etc.) there are some really great instrumental Halloween cd's that'll conjure memories and make all the ghoulies smile.

  • Charlie Brown Theme
  • Twilight Zone Theme
  • Jaws Theme (this one makes me laugh... hard!)
  • Psycho soundtrack
  • Friday the 13th soundtrack
  • Bram Stoker's Dracula soundtrack
  • The Omen Soundtrack
  • The Exorcist - Theme from Tubular Bells

THE PRIVATE COLLECTION - these are just my favorite artists.... honestly, I listen to some of them year round. but they make Halloween feel like Halloween. Their music is incredible!

  • Sarah Brightman - her voice is beautiful, amazing and often eerie.
  • Nox Arcana - music with haunting sound effects. Beautiful and scary at the same time.... my Halloween staple! It's not Halloween without Nox Arcana!
  • Mediaeval Baebes - voices combined with percussion mainly... different and wonderful!
  • Haggard - German band with the most amazing music! This one is a MUST LISTEN! Scary, beautiful and something you've never heard before! It's like metal and classical, thrash and symphony... even that description isn't right!
  • Midnight Syndicate - I am listening to the Vampyre album right this second (and The 13th Hour is set to play next... LOL). They are my all time Halloween favorite! :)

This is pretty much what you'll find me listening to until Christmas! hahahahaha!

PLEASE let me know if you hear any great Halloween songs that I don't have on my list here. I LOVE Halloween, so of all my lists... this one should be the most complete! ;)
