Ultimate Halloween Music Playlist


So your throwing a Halloween party this year and you want to put together a killer Halloween playlist for your guests to enjoy all night? Or maybe you just want to get into the spirit of things by enjoying some creepy music. Well, there are many great music CD’s out there that you can buy to set the mood right. Probably the best Halloween mood music you can find is by Midnight Syndicate, a group whose music is used widely in haunted attractions to provide chilling atmoshphere. They have lots of CD’s out now some of which have titles like Out Of Darkness, The 13th Hour, Vampyre, and The Dead Matter: Cemetary Gates. There are countless other CD’s I could recommend, but instead I’ve compiled a list of songs that you shouldn’t forget to include in your ultimate Halloween playlist.

  1. I’ve already bookmark this article and will definitely refer this article to all my close friends and colleagues. Thanks for posting!

  2. heh, i tend to go more for the modern/recent stuff…or the stuff some people have heard of but others haven’t. Love natalia kills’ “zombie.” Another good one is NIN’s dead souls or the theme song to TrueBlood. Also, if you enjoy the Nightmare Before Christmas soundtrack, check out the remix…marilyn manson doing “this is halloween” and Korn doing “kidnap the Sandy Clause.” Def recommend them if you’re like me and you love “modern” takes on the classics, heh.

  3. Your right Michael, I’m old..haha! I am missing some of the newer songs and so I’ll definitely have to update this list to include everything! Thanks for the suggestions!
