Here are some more creepy Halloween songs, which just barely missed making my list of the Top 10 Halloween songs:
"Thriller," Michael Jackson (1982): Fun song, but too obvious (and overplayed) to make the top 10.
"Monster Mash," Bobby "Boris" Pickett (1962): See above.
"Season of the Witch," Donovan (1966) -- Any track that brings to mind "Halloween III: Season of the Witch" is disqualified from consideration.
"Dance with the Devil," Immortal Technique (2001): This might be the most disturbing song I've ever heard. Don't play this unless you want your party guests to leave early.
"Somebody's Watching Me," Rockwell (1984): If paranoia is your bag, this R&B tune, featuring Michael Jackson on the chorus, is your song.
"Ghostbusters," Ray Parker, Jr. (1984): I'm not afraid of this song.
"(Don't Fear) The Reaper," Blue Oyster Cult (1976): Needs more cowbell.
