Not a "Halloween" song, necessarily, but well suited for it.  I wore this record out when I was a little kid - still love it!  Now, if only someone would make a cool video to go with it!
Batman, Wolfman, Frankenstein, or Dracula


Ghoultown offers up some great Halloweenish mood music.  LOVE this band and the movie, "Werewolves On Wheels" is a personal favorite of mine.

And, of course...

Before any of these other offerings were released, RCA had in 1958 already hit the market with this Monster Rally LP with sleeve art by the incomparable Jack Davis:

That album cover always intrigued me.

Peter Green was both an incredible guitarist and an anazing musical talent. Nothing Fleetwood Mac did after he left even vaguely approached the heights reached during his tenure.

Not technically a song or songs. But....I picked Disney's Haunted Mansion LP.  This particular LP was the soundtrack to my childhood. I would rush home from school, just to listen to the album. Every month, never
became bored of the album. As I recall. There were three albums I listened to quite often. Alice Cooper's. Welcome
to my Nightmare. KISS'. self titled LP, and Disney's Haunted Mansion LP.

Yay!! Spirited topic & great music, everyone!
I always play The Misfits- Monster Mash every year, because my grandson LOVES it! So it's always the opening song at our Halloween Party.  I also play AFI's cover of HALLOWEEN, & The Necromantix- Life is a Grave and I Dig it.
My favorite of ALL time is The Headless Horseman! I've listened to that record/tape/cd/mp3 since I was 5 years old.

Donovan - Season of the Witch



Great tune. But ironically the song has nothing to do with Witches.or Witchcraft......But has a whole lot to do with drugs
and partying.  >:D
