The Best Halloween Songs

List Criteria: Songs that are traditionally played around Halloween that feature Halloween characters or spooky accompaniment

Best Halloween songs, as voted on by people like you. This list contains some of the best Halloween party music songs - both modern and classic. While Halloween theme music can be found on compilation albums (I've included a few), some of the best Halloween tunes are one-off singles. From "Monster Mash" to the "Time Warp," check out this list for some great Halloween songs. Be sure to vote for your favorites and if you don't see your fave on the list, add it!

Halloween is a great time to crank up the music and have a spooky good time. Whether you're getting ready to go trick-or-treating, carving Halloween pumpkins or prepping for an epic Halloween party, the right music can certainly provide a creepy, fun ambiance for everyone. Some of the music on this list is well-suited for kids and adults, while some might be a bit over-the-top for youngsters. (Halloween songs for adults can be graphic.) I've also added true classics from my own childhood, including Walt Disney's Chilling Thrilling Sounds of the Haunted House album (a staple at any Halloween gathering). 

What are the best Halloween songs? Take a look at this best Halloween music compilation and vote on your favorite scary songs.
