Get these songs added to your Halloween party playlist right away.

Halloween doesn’t have to been all about the free sweets, you know. Sometimes, once in a while, a musical gem is released and can be immediately added to Halloween party playlists across the country.

Here, we choose the top six greatest Halloween songs.

6. Mike Oldfield - Tubular Bells Part 1

5. Ray Parker Jr. - Ghostbusters

The fun side of Halloween, it’s unlikely you'll be scared of Ghostbusters. One for the children, maybe.


4. Rockwell - Somebody’s Watching Me

Not one for the paranoid amongst us. "Somebody's Watching Me" includes backing vocals from Michael Jackson and Jermaine Jackson. 


3. The Time Warp

“It’s just a jump to the left…” From Rocky Horror Picture Show, this is the perfect Halloween party song.  Although we’ve danced to it at many a wedding reception, so it’s a song for all the celebrations. We defy you not to do the dance! 


2. Thriller - Michael Jackson

Probably the song that most people would associate with Halloween, 'Thriller' is a great track for getting a spooky party started. 


1. Bobby Pickett - The Monster Mash

If you’re hosting a Halloween party, this is an absolute must for your playlist - it’s kitsch and creepy.
