Great Halloween Songs

I love Halloween--it's the best holiday on the calendar. I have an annual party with lots of fun and games and--MUSIC! What are your favorite Halloween tunes? And I don't mean exclusively "cartoon-ish" songs, either. Two of my favorites are I Put A Spell On You (Creedence) and, Hey Joe (Jimi).

I like a few songs from "Nightmare before Christmas" and "Rocky Horror".

Well, "Black Magic Woman" by Santana is my rather obvious choice. Also, "Rhiannon" by Fleetwood Mac: "She moves like a cat through the night, and wouldn't you love to love her? Takes to the sky like a bird in flight, and who will be her lover?" Pretty mysterious!

My band does both those songs...

My Halloween all-time fave has to be "Monster Mash".

I prefer the Toccata and Fugue in G minor myself (Dracula's Castle music for the uninitiated).

An organ has a power all it's own and few other instruments can match it for sheer emotional effect. Maybe the violin, but have you ever heard a violin shake the floors?
No, the pipe organ is my hands-down favorite.

Samhain Night by Loreena McKennitt.

In fact, darn near anything by Loreen McKennitt.

Witchcraft

That Old Black Magic

Funeral March for a Marionette.

Tubular Bells

Danse Macabre

Dark Shadows Theme (and Josette's Theme from the same series)

March to the Scaffold

In the Hall of the Mountain King

Oh, and somewhere here, in a box, I have my Hallmark Cards Booklet of Peanuts Pumpkin Carols.

Absolutely essential for Halloween.

Much as I despise Starhawk's politics, I do like her Reclaiming Chants CD. Perfect for the New Year. (Second Chants isn't as good.)

Thought of a few more:

Frankenstein - Edgar Winter
All Souls Night - Loreena McKennitt
Jeff Wayne's Musical Version of the War of the Worlds

I also try to find the radio station cool enough to run the Orson Wells' broadcast.
