    How about some of these:

    Don’t Fear The Reaper – Blue Oyster Cult

    The Blob – The Five Blobs

    I Put A Spell On You – Screamin’ Jay Hawkins

    The Addams Family – Vic Mizzy

    Tubular Bells – Mike Oldfield

    Martian Boogie – Brownsville Station

    Welcome To My Nightmare – Alice Cooper

    Werewolves of London – Warren Zevon

    Little Space Girl – Jesse Lee Turner

    Attack of the Fifty Foot Woman – The Tubes

    Ghost Riders In The Sky – The Outlaws

    Black Magic Woman – Santana

    In The Midnight Hour – Wilson Pickett

    Scarecrow – Pink Floyd

    Pet Semetary – The Ramones

    Bad Moon Rising – Creedence Clearwater Revival

    Legend of Wooley Swamp – Charlie Daniels

    Devil Went Down To Georgia – Charlie Daniels

    Witchy Woman – The Eagles

    Spooky – Atlanta Rhythm Section

    And for good general background halloween music, there was always several of John Carpenter’s themes from his various movies (Halloween, The Fog, Christine, etc)

    I have a couple more tapes somewhere with a bunch more songs on them, but I can’t find them right off. A bunch of heavy metal stuff had halloween themes, and another one had all 50’s and 60’s stuff – lot of stuff from the old Dr Demento radio show.

    OK, so in another place and time I was a dj and used to do a lot of halloween parties, so I had alot of this stuff on party tapes.

    Wow! That’s a list! I did find this list from iTunes.

  • I was going to suggest Zevon’s “Werewolves of London” — but I see Paul has already done so.

    Of course one could go back to the original meaning of Halloween and sing hymns like “For All The Saints” a day early! 🙂
