One, two, he's coming for you!

We're still on a halloween kick, people. That's how we roll in these parts.

So! Since I love halloween, and you should, too, I've broken down a list of must-have songs to really stir up the freaky factor at your halloween soiree (or just to chair dance to, in the office):

40 Excellent & Obscure Halloween Sounds

1. Magic Dance - David Bowie (from the Labyrinth)
2. Thriller - Michael Jackson
3. Disturbia - Rihanna
4. Rob Zombie - More human than human
5. Closer - Nine Inch Nails
6. Sweet dreams - Marylin Manson
7. Twilight Theme
8. Monster Mash
9. I Put a Spell on You - Hocus Pocus
10. Ghostbusters theme song
11. Spinal Menangitis - Ween (this is not a fun song if you get weirded out by kids being hurt. It's too creepy.
12. Wandering stars - Portishead
13. Man Man - Engrish Bwudd
14. Addams Groove - MC Hammer
15. Lacrymosa - Evanescence
16. Ramalama (Bang, bang) - Roisin Murphy
17. Vampire - Antsy Pants
18. Dead & Bloated - Stone Temple Pilots
19. Toxic - Britney Spears

22. Everybody (Backstreet's back) - Backstreet Boys
23. The Shining Theme
24. Halloween - Dave Matthews Band
25. This is Halloween - Marylin Manson
26. Superstition - Stevie Wonder
27. Bela Lugosi's Dead - Crackle - Bauhaus
28. Psycho Killer - Talking Heads
29. Spiderwebs - No Doubt
30. I Have the Touch - Heather Nova (the Craft soundtrack)
31. Time warp - Rocky Horror Picture Show
32. Ghost Train - Counting Crows
33. The Ghost Inside - Broken Bells
34. Freakshow - Britney Spears
35. People are Strange - The Doors
36. Demons - Joel Plaskett
37. Hurt - Johnny Cash
38. No Moon - Iron & Wine
39. Nightmares by the Sea-  Jeff Buckley
40. Swamp Witch - Jim Stafford

I can't even get through my whole list - it's exhausting! But basically, get these main songs, and then pepper it with anything on the heavy side. Nine Inch Nails NEVER lets me down, and Tool or a Perfect Circle lends an amazing vibe. Any soundtrack from a freaky movie (like the Craft, or the Crow) is an excellent idea. They summon up creep factor that you may not even think of.

Do you have any songs that you would add to the list?
