31 Halloween Songs (That Aren't Thriller or Monster Mash) | Tony Schwartz

Now, don’t get me wrong: Bobby “Borris” Pickett’s “Monster Mash” and Michael Jackson’s “Thriller” are GREAT Halloween songs. But man, are they ever overused! So, for your Halloween enjoyment, I present an insanely large playlist of music that will work for any Halloween-themed party. Some of the songs play off of the Halloween theme, others are just plain dark and moody. And if I missed a song you feel should be on the list, leave me a comment below!
