What's a party without the music? If you're throwing a Halloween Party, you need a scary playlist of music to really get everyone in the mood.
There's plenty to choose from, there's the quirky and novelty tracks, to the iconic and scary tracks, as well as music from genres which are a pretty dark places on a good day, like metal.
Here's our playlist which will catapult your party right into the charts!
Michael Jackson - Thriller (Full video version)
Possibly the best ever song, but it's more than that. It's a 13 minute video, almost like a mini film, which has an epic soundtrack and the most memorable dance scenes.
If one song is going to get you in the Halloween mood, it's Thriller from Michael Jackson.
Ray Parker Jr. - Ghostbusters
A bit of a novelty song, the Ghostbusters theme will instantly get everyone in a fun and happy mood. There'll be singing along with the chorus where everyone can shout out, GHOSTBUSTERS!
Monster Mash - Bobby 'Boris' Pickett & the Crypt-Kickers
While we're on the subject of cheesy and novelty songs for Halloween, we've got to mention Monster Mash from Bobby 'Boris' Pickett & the Crypt-Kickers.
You're probably too young to know this song, so ask your parents and grand parents about it! There's not much to say, other than hilarious lyrics perfect for a laugh.
The Prodigy - Breathe
The Prodigy were always renowned for their scary or quirky music videos, and this classic from the 90's combines sharp punching sounding lyrics and music with a scary element.
This could have easily have been No Good For Me or Firestarter, two other hits from The Prodigy.
The Automatic - Monster
What's that coming over the hill, is it a monster? Is it a monster!
Indie rock giant hit from The Automatic in 2006 is a massive track for your party, and is a track that most people should recognise.
AC/DC - Highway To Hell
Another rock classic, if you're going down a more rock and roll path from yesteryear then Highway To Hell from AC/DC is one of those tracks you need to have.
Alice Cooper - Feed My Frankenstein
We remember this track from Wayne's World of all places, it's Feed My Frankenstein from Alice Cooper, an absolute rock banger for any party!
Michael Myers - Halloween Theme Song
If you're not familiar with the name, you'll be familiar with the music. It's the Halloween theme music from the film, which will bring back scary nightmares for some.
Perfect to put on a loop or have as an intro.
Harry Belefonte - Jump In The Line
Shake, Shake, Shake, Señora...It's Jump In The Line from Harry Belefonte, from the soundtrack to Beetlejuice.
A more up tempo song for your party, it will get everyone dancing.
