The Terrifying 200: A “Spook”-Tacular Seemingly Endless List of Songs For Your Halloween Party

10-31-kiss

Forgive me guys for the “mega-list” I put together. I left off some of the iconic TV and movie theme songs, like The Exorcist, Halloween and The Twilight Zone. I also love to use “trailers” for many of those cheesy B-movies from the ’50s and ’60s in the midst of the songs on this list. I also left off, yet love to use my album of Halloween Nuggets which contains some of the greatest garage rock Halloween sounds of the mid-’60s. If you love the Nuggets collections that have been released  in the past, then that collection is a great source of some off-beat Halloween music. But, for this list, I stuck with the “classics”. Enjoy! Let the countdown begin…

I am just a long-time music fan who used to be a high school science teacher and a varsity coach of several high school athletic teams. Before that, I worked as a medical technologist at three hospitals in their labs, mainly as a microbiologist. I am retired/disabled (Failed Back Surgery Syndrome), and this is my attempt to remain a human. Additionally, I am a serious vinyl aficionado, with a CD addiction and a love of reading about rock history. Finally, I am a fan of Prince, Cheap Trick, Tom Petty, R.E.M., Hall & Oates, Springsteen, Paul Weller & his bands and Power Pop music.
