Whether you are driving to your favourite Halloween haunt, in the kitchen making spooktacular goodies, or entertaining guests with a Halloween party, the perfect Halloween playlist is required for October festivities. The challenge with predetermined playlists is the tracks do not always transition to fit the occasion. For example, you would not want cartoon theme songs to pop up in the middle of and adult Halloween party.
I have created this list of Halloween songs intended for adults that enjoyed the 80’s and 90’s with a few traditional songs that belong on every Halloween playlist. You will also find a few Rock songs to appease your inner Goth.
|1||He’s Back||Alice Cooper|
|3||Somebody’s Watching Me||Rockwell|
|4||Monster Mash||Bobby “Boris” Pickett & The Crypt-Kickers|
|5||Freaks Come Out At Night||Whodini|
|6||Ghostbusters||Ray Parker Jr.|
|7||(Don’t Fear) The Reaper||Blue Oyster Cult|
|8||A Nightmare On My Street||DJ Jazzy Jeff & The Fresh Prince|
|11||The Purple People Eater||Sheb Wooley|
