Scotchie needs your help! Halloween songs!!!


Recommended Posts

So, I am trying to put together an epic Halloween playlist both for my all-day party on Saturday and the subsequent day of Halloween where I'll be giving out candy for several hours (I get between 300 and 400 trick or treaters). Can folks please make suggestions???

a few caveats:

No: Rob Zombie, Marilyn Manson (and like 90's industrial bands), Death/Black metal, Cramps.

It has to be something that normal radio stations could play without being fined by the FCC.

This is what I actively have so far (As in already in the playlist):

Werewolves of London- Warren Zevon

Psycho - The Sonics

The Witch - The Sonics

Trick or Treat - Fastway

You must be a witch - the Lolipop Shop

Devil with the Blue Dress on - Detroit Wheels

Witch in the Club - Quintron and Miss Pussycat

Cut-out Witch- Guided by voices

Superstition - Stevie Wonder

Season of the witch - Donovan

Thriller (duh) Michael Jackson

One Eyed-One Horned Flying Purple People Eater - Sheb Wooley

Bark at the Moon -Ozzy

Twilight Zone - Rush

Twilight Zone - Golden Earring

Monster Mash (also, duh) Boris Pickett

Frankensten - Edgar Winter Group

Somebody's watching me - Rockwell

The Freaks come out at night - Whodini

Ghost Riders in the Sky - Johnny Cash

The Killing Moon - Echo and the Bunnymen (and possibly their cover of People are Strange)

I Put a spell on you - Screamin' Jay Hawkins (guess who hates CCR? me!)

Strange Brew - Cream

A Forest - The Cure

Lulaby - The Cure

Haunted - Dusty Springfield

Strange Dream - Red Lorry Yellow Lorry

Dead Souls - Joy Division

Shadow Cabinet - The Church

And I am just going to pick something out of a hat involving Bauhaus, Iron Maiden, Alice Cooper, Ronnie James Dio, Black Sabbath, Tom Waits, and Danzig/The Misfits. As well as various songs taken from horror movie soundtracks (Exorcist, Halloween, and..um...Rocky Horror).

Jeepers Creepers, and 1930's jazz tune.

It was used in a horror movie, also titled Jeepers Creepers.

"Jeepers Creepers, where'd ya get those peepers?

Jeepers Creepers, where'd ya get those eyes?"

It's been covered by various artists, so i'm sure you can find a version you'd like for your party.

Thanks!!!

Good call on the 'Boingo and Primus and Siouxsie (I was so busy trying to find an appropriate song off the Glove's Blue Sunshine that I totally forgot Siouxsie Sioux!) . Bauhaus is already covered...in abundance :)

And I can't believe I forgot 'Don't Fear the Reaper". I of course have it!

Carl Orf, however, is a big no. I used to like Carl Orf, but let's just say I have negative associations :D

Actually, I might just include Peek a Boo, By Siouxsie and the Banshees, which includes bits of this song.

Sheb Wooley. It's already on my list. ALWAYS.

Thanks for your input :D Did you know that Number of the Beast is my ringtone for when my husband calls me? We have LOTS of Iron Maiden in my house.

Oh, sorry, didn't notice you had that already...

Ahah, Iron Maiden is pretty big here aswell! No ringtone, but it's here.

Just remembered Good Vibrations - Beach Boys (Thought that one sounds kinda creepy)

I guess the Boston phoenix released the top 100 Goth songs of all time.

I can't believe I forgot Down in the Park. I love this song. It's Halloween-y right? Or at least sinister as hell!

or or maybe I Die, You Die.... HMMM.

But I might add my favorite Cure song in there just because its hysterical.

I dunno how ethereal/spooky you want this to be, or if you'd rather this be more of a fun-sounding thing, but Dead Can Dance has a lot of songs that I think sound pretty haunting. Like

or
or
. A lot of stuff from their "Within the Realm of a Dying Sun" album sounds like that.
