    I need to put together some Halloween party music.

    Here are some things that popped into my head, but I need more suggestions...It doesn't have to be explicity Halloween, but at least dark, spooky...fit the mood. Humor is not mandatory.

    I Put a Spell on You
    Monster Mash
    anything from the 'Nightmare Before Christmas' soundtrack
    anything from the Disney 'Haunted Mansion' CD
    Paint it Black
    Sympathy for the Devil
    Werewolves of London

    Hmmm, I know some spooky cuts from TMBG, but I can't remember the names...I can find those.

    I'm sure there is some good Oingo Boingo stuff but I'm not an expert.

    Any help would be appreciated.

    You're off to a good start, So many choices

    Witchcraft - Elvis
    Haunted House - Jumpin Gene Simmons (no relation to KISS)
    The Raven - Alan Parsons Project (narration by Vincent Price I think)
    The Mummy - can't remember the performer right now (just came to me Bob McFadden!)
    Dinner with Drac - ? Zacherle
    Experiment in Terror - Henry Mancini
    Spooky - Classics IV
    Anything from the Ed Wood Story Soundtrack

    The themes to the movie Halloween and Unsolved Mysteries are ultra creepy and hilarious.

    2. Haunted Strangler
    3. Bo Meets the Monster - Bo Diddley
    4. I Was a Teenage Frankenstein/Blood of Dracula
    5. Midnight Stroll - The Revels
    6. Frankenstein of '59 - Buchanan & Goodman
    7. Frankenstein's Den - Hollywood Flames
    8. Horror of Dracula
    9. Screamin' Ball (At Dracula Hall) - Duponts
    10. I Was a Teenage Werewolf
    11. Werewolf - Five Man Electrical Band
    12. Mummy
    13. Haunted House - Johnny Fuller
    14. Black Sunday
    15. Feast of the Mau Mau - Screamin' Jay Hawkins
    16. Amazing Colossal Man
    17. Witch Queen of New Orleans - Redbone
    18. 4D Man
    19. Castin' My Spell - Marci Lee
    20. Thing That Couldn't Die
    21. Green Slime
    22. She-Creature/It Conquered the World
    23. Li'l Red Riding Hood - Sam the Sham & the Pharaohs
    24. Astro Zombies
    25. I Ain't Superstitious - Howlin' Wolf
    26. Frankenstein Returns, Pt. 2 - Buchanan & Goodman
    27. Morgus the Magnificent - Dr. John

    every halloween i wallow in misery because of the fact that i can no longer attend one of my annual halloween rituals:
    attending OINGO-BOINGO's halloween concert
    so, in honor of them, i decree any song from the 'dead man's party' album a viable candidate.
    obviously the title track gets dibs!

    Iced Earth's latest album has a whole theme about horror flicks. Haven't gotten it yet, though. Rob Zombie and Alice Cooper probably have a wealth of material that fit.

    NP: Thelonious Monk, Monk's Dream

    Here's the track list I came up with for a similar comp of my own. I wasn't really interested in the cheesy Halloween tracks like monster mash. Probably won't be a lot of help since I doubt that you have much (if any) of these releases in your collection.

    1 O Fortuna-From Carmina Burana-Performed by the
    Boston Pops, John Williams conductor
    2 Love Never Dies, Part 1-Apoptygma Berzerk
    3 Witches-Switchblade Symphony
    4 Black Day-Abney Park
    5 Mysterium-Clan Of Xymox
    6 Rosemary’s Baby-Hecates Angels
    7 Are You Gone?-The Cranes
    8 Gargoyles-Vigil (via Chip B)
    9 Iron Gate-Alphaville
    10 The Host of Seraphim-Dead Can Dance
    11 The Passion And The Fury-Autumn Tears
    12 Inoa Ole-The Creatures
    13 Ascension Day-Alphaville
    14 Blood Countess-Untotoen
    15 Witches Revolt-Noisex
    16 Requiem-VNV Nation
    17 Martin-Soft Cell

    Here is the tracklist of another Halloween comp from a buddy that was created by combing mine, his, and those of a few other music trading pals.

    1. Numb - Portishead
    2. Everyday is Halloween- Ministry
    3. I'm Your Boogie Man - White Zombie
    4. Trouble's Braids - Tom Waits
    5. Ribcage Mambo - Frenchy
    6. To the Bridge - Cat People Soundtrack
    7. The Exorcist Theme - Mike Oldfield
    8. Gargoyles - Vigil
    9. A Fistful of Terror - The Bomboras
    10. Werewolf - Southern Culture on the Skids
    11. Love Never Dies Part 1 -Apoptygma Berzerk
    12. Red Right Hand - Nick Cave
    13. Blackday - Abney Park
    14. Are You Gone - Cranes
    15. The Downward Spiral - NIN
    16. Requiem - VNV Nation

    Can't find the track list for the one we did last year.

    might wanna check out the new murderdolls cd. the entire disc is devoted to everything macabre and murderous. also, if you are planning to use "i put a spell on you" i would suggest using the marilyn manson cover version. also, manson does a nice and eery cover of "suicide is painless"
