I always start planning my Halloween party early. I have to say it can be hard to get into the late October mindset when it is still warm. So I dug out my Halloween Party Playlist and lit a pumpkin spice candle to get the fall ideas flowing.
The following songs are perfect for your next Halloween Party. It is a great mix of songs, everyone knows them (or they should) and they all fit the spooky, scary, evil, devil’s night theme of Halloween.

If you’re looking for a great spooky sounds CD for background music, I highly recommend the Martha Stewart Spooky Scary Sounds for Halloween … I play it in my front yard as we pass out candy. It is realistic and not at all cheesy, like other “Halloween Sounds” CD compellations I have heard.
Or, if you are looking for music that is more elegant (but still spooky) try this list of Scary Classical Music for Halloween.
