75 Top Pop, Rock, and Country Songs for Your Halloween Party

FlourishAnyway believes there is a playlist for just about any situation and is on a mission to unite and entertain the world through song.


Celebrate Halloween With a Spooky Song List

An eerie hush falls over this Halloween night after trick-or-treaters have made their rounds. Sugar-high children have assessed their haul, and parents have sampled several of the best pieces of candy (for safety and quality control reasons, of course).

As neighborhood porch lights dim, jack-o-lanterns still flicker. There is a distant howl. While the rest of the world folds wearily into November, your Halloween party at the end of the street is still going strong well into the wee hours.

If you're planning to celebrate Halloween, here are both perennial favorites and lesser-known songs, sings-a-longs, and haunting tales. Include tunes about monsters, ghosts, magic, witches, werewolves, and more! Have an eerie good time!

1. "Monster Mash" by Bobby "Borris" Pickett and the Crypt Kickers

So you're a mad scientist who is hard at work in your laboratory late one night (work with me here, people). The monster you're trying to create suddenly rises from his stupor. Awake, he starts to dance his electrodes off.

Quick. What do you do?

You join him! And so do Dracula, zombies, the Wolfman, Igor, and a bunch of other creepy friends. This song was originally released in 1962. No list is complete without it.

2. "Somebody's Watching Me" by Rockwell

Back in 1984, we thought Rockwell was just being paranoid. Released decades before revelations that the National Security Agency has been watching us all, Rockwell sings about a man who feels like he is "just a little touched." He feels unsafe because the neighbors and the mailman are spying on him—and maybe even the IRS.

Call me crazy, but maybe this guy wasn't as paranoid as he believed himself to be.

"Frankenstein, you sorry soul, someone cut your head in the shape of a bowl."

"Frankenstein, you sorry soul, someone cut your head in the shape of a bowl."

3. "I Would Die For You" by Matt Walters

Though it shares the same name with a Prince and the Revolution song that was released in 1984, that's where the similarity ends for the song of the same name by Australian indie musician Matt Walters.

Walters' version originally found YouTube fame when it was uploaded by a fan and viewed by millions. It is a haunting tale about a man who knew his love for a woman was cursed the first time he set eyes upon her. There was a foreboding of the tragic fate that would befall them when she promised that she would die for him.

4. "Ghostbusters" by Ray Parker, Jr.

In 1984, a blockbuster movie about paranormal investigators used this number as its theme song. It had everyone singing along:

If there's something strange
in your neighborhood
Who ya gonna call?

If there's something weird
and it don't look good
Who ya gonna call?

I ain't afraid of no ghosts
I ain't afraid of no ghosts

Ray Parker, Jr. both wrote and performed the song but was sued by another musician, Huey Lewis, for copyright infringement. Lewis alleged that Parker stole the song's melody from "I Want A New Drug." They settled out of court.1

"Straw hat, harvest moon, boogie man's gonna be here soon!"

"Straw hat, harvest moon, boogie man's gonna be here soon!"

5. "The Purple People Eater" by Sheb Wooley

In 1958, Sheb Wooley introduced the public to an alien—"a one-eyed, one-horned, flyin' purple people eater"—who descended to Earth so that he could get a job in a rock 'n' roll band.

6. "I Want Candy" by Aaron Carter

This 2000 song by Aaron Carter isn't referring to a Snickers bar and lollipops. He was a teenage crush on a girl named Candy. His whiney, repetitive sing-song refrain of "I want Candy!" sounds very much like all those tweens and teens who are too old to be trick-or-treating.

7. "Love Potion No. 9" by The Searchers

Unlucky in love, a man took his troubles to a local fortune teller who concocted a potion to cure what ailed him. After drinking it, the man started kissing everything in sight. However, his new amorousness came to a sudden halt when he smooched a policeman.

Although we know that the policeman broke his bottle of love potion, no one knows if that's all he broke. The song was made famous by The Searchers in 1963.

8. "Abracadabra" by The Steve Miller Band

The Steve Miller Band released this song in 1982. Inspired by Diana Ross, the song is about an enchanting woman who has magical seductive powers over the narrator. It became one of the Greatest Songs of All Time on the Billboard list.

9. "Phantom 309" by Red Sovine

Classic country singer Red Sovine tells a spooky tale about a hitchhiker who caught a ride with a mysterious trucker. (You have to remember it was 1967, and people hitchhiked then.) The hitchhiker was unaware until he got out of the cab that the trucker was a ghost who was traveling the same route that put him in the netherworld. Spooky, eh?

The practice of going door-to-door for candy started more than 2,000 years ago.

The practice of going door-to-door for candy started more than 2,000 years ago.

How Did the Tradition of Trick-or-Treating Start?

Trick-or-treating is the ritualized begging for candy by costumed-clad children. It is celebrated in the United States, many parts of Europe, Canada, and in some other parts of the world. Elements of the practice date back 2,000 years ago to the ancient Celtic festival of Samhain (pronounced "sah-win"), a pagan end-of-harvest holiday in which the dead were believed to return to roam the earth.2

Celtic celebrations were marked by bonfires and edible offerings left out to appease the spirits. People also dressed up in devil, ghost, and similar costumes to try to blend in with evil spirits or to ward them off.

Another possible predecessor included the practice of "souling" about 1000 years later. Poor children would dress up and visit the homes of affluent families on November 2, the day designated by the church as All Souls Day. In exchange for small gifts of food or money, the kids would promise to pray for the souls of the homeowners' dead relatives.

Also, in Scotland and Ireland, there was a tradition called "guising" involving youth going house to house and reciting a poem, singing a song, or performing another talent in exchange for sweets, nuts, or coins.

The practice of trick-or-treating didn't become popular in the United States until the 1930s. Americans today spend in excess of $11 billion on Halloween candy, costumes, decorations, and other items.3

10. "Witchy Woman" by The Eagles

The Eagles released this song in 1972, inspired by the lifestyle excesses of writer F. Scott Fitzgerald's wife, Zelda. It was one of the first songs that band member Don Henley wrote for the Eagles. He had become mesmerized with Zelda's persona after reading a biography about her.4

Zelda was an enchanting woman who lived a lifestyle at full throttle. She was uninhibited, glamorous, and all-out reckless, even though it cost her extensive stays in mental institutions.

Raven hair and ruby lips
Sparks fly from her finger tips
Echoed voices in the night
She's a restless spirit on an endless flight
Wooo-hooo, witchy woman, see how
high she flies . . .

Sadly, Zelda died in an asylum fire in 1948.

Are All Witches Evil?

Throughout history, witches have practiced both black and white magic. "White witches" have included folk healers and spell casters with benevolent intent. Some of their efforts have taken the form of spells to

  • cure sickness
  • mend relationships
  • bring good luck and happiness
  • find lost items and
  • communicate with the spirits.

11. "Devil Woman" by Marty Robbins

In this 1962 country classic, Marty Robbins is the cheating husband who blames his marital misdeeds on the dark charms of a seductress. Like a moth drawn to a flame, he finds her irresistible.

It's a weak man to use such a convenient excuse to evade all personal responsibility. "The devil made me do it." Huh! Couldn't he think of something more creative?

A song by the same name was released by Cliff Richard in 1976 and superbly updated by Bruce Willis. (If you didn't know he could sing, watch the YouTube video below.) The song is about a man who encounters bad luck after crossing paths with a stray black cat. He sees the assistance of a psychic medium, however, and discovers that she has the same alluring eyes. The psychic had been the one to curse him in the first place.

12. "Thriller" by Michael Jackson

This Michael Jackson classic (1982) describes the terror of being surrounded by zombies and other creatures of the night. The Thriller video features MJ in his heyday—red leather jacket and light on his feet—before depigmentation, surgeries, and drug addiction took him away.

With the release of the Thriller album, the King of Pop overcame racial barriers. Just two years previously, Rolling Stone had declined to do a cover story on him, allegedly because African American musicians on the cover didn't sell magazines.

13. "Werewolves of London" by Warren Zevon

Warren Zevon (1978) tells the strange tale of werewolves on the loose in one of the greatest cities in the world. Even if the lyrics don't make sense to you, don't pass up the opportunity to repeatedly howl like a werewolf: "Aaoooooo!"

14. "Devil Went Down To Georgia" by The Charlie Daniels Band

Who knew that the Devil played the fiddle? The Charlie Daniels Band (1979) tells the tale of a fiddle-playing devil who was frustrated that he hadn't claimed as many Georgia souls as he needed. When he ran into a young fiddle player named Johnny, the Devil challenged him to a fiddle-playing contest. The wager was Johnny's soul for a golden fiddle.

In an impressive musical duel, Johnny defeats the Devil, who lays the golden fiddle at his feet.

15. "I’m Your Boogie Man" by KC & the Sunshine Band

At the height of the disco era, KC & the Sunshine Band made this song famous (1976). Although the song has nothing to do with a ghost or ghoul, it's a convenient play on words. "Boogie" is a slang term for dancing, but the disco boogie man in this song is interested in canoodling and wherever that might lead.

Even Gouls, Ghosts, and Zombies Have Emotional Baggage

Can you play "armchair psychologist" for gouls, ghosts, and other things that go bump in the night? Analyze one of them for us in the Comments Section. How about: vampire, skeleton, ghost, scarecrow, the Grim Reaper?

Creepy CreatureEmotional Baggage and SymptomsSource Of His/Her Psychological Issues


Frankestein has deep identity, anger and abandonment issues. Being a humanoid, he is also unable to form normal human attachments and is socially awkward. The creepy creature is without a true social support system.

He's a medical experiment gone wrong. The monster has no mother, and his mad scientist father abandoned him and tried to kill him. People are afraid of him just by looking at him. His appearance frightens others because he was assembled from old body parts, is 8 feet tall, and has bolts sticking out of his head.


This graveyard creature suffers flattened affect, impulse control, and inflexible thinking (all he wants to do is eat brains). He has deep-seated concerns about group affiliation (i.e., Am I living or dead? Am I heaven bound, headed for Hell, or forever stranded to roam the Earth?)

He's a rotting corpse, rejected from both Heaven and Hell. He has a severe case of the munchies because he hasn't eaten in weeks and is a notoriously picky eater. Wouldn't that make you feel aggressive, too?


Rejected by her peers since childhood, the witch seeks revenge against those who would do her harm via magic spells. Both the anger and shame she feels threatens to sentence her to a life of social isolation, as other members of her social support system were burned at the stake.

Traumatized, publicly ridiculed and persecuted for her sincerely held religious beliefs and green skin color, this sorceress feels grief-stricken, unjustly targeted, and unwelcome in her own community.

16. "They're Coming to Take Me Away, Ha-Haaaa!" by Napoleon XIV

Napoleon XIV blames his ex-girlfriend for his mental breakdown in this 1966 song, but then he confuses whether it's his beloved or his dog he's talking to. Blaming his trip to the "funny farm" for being abandoned, he includes laughter in his maniacal tale.

Remember when you ran away
And I got on my knees and begged
You not to leave
Because I'd go berserk?
You left me anyhow and then
The days got worse and worse
And now you see I've gone
Completely out of my mind.

17. "The Night the Lights Went Out In Georgia" by Reba McEntire

Reba McEntire tells a tale of a double murder with a surprise twist in the end in this 1991 country hit. A woman recounts how her brother returned from being away for two weeks, only to learn that his young bride had been stepping out on him, including sleeping with his best friend.

Both the best friend and the cheating wife end up murdered, although the body of the unfaithful Mrs. "will never be found." An innocent man—the same one cheated on—is blamed for both deaths. However, his little sister is the real killer. She's fast at pulling the trigger but not nearly as quick to tell the truth.

18. "Better Dig Two" by The Band Perry

There is nothing spookier than being told by your wife that she loves you so much that if you ever betray her, she'll put you in the ground and then follow you there herself. These are twisted lyrics good enough for Halloween. The song was released in 2012 by The Band Perry.

19. "Legend of Wooley Swamp" by The Charlie Daniels Band

This Charlie Daniels Band song from 1980 tells a ghost story of a greedy old backwoodsman named Lucius Clay who buried all of his money in mason jars. Some nights, he digs it up just to run his fingers through it. Mean neighbor boys conspire to steal the old man's hoard, but they get what's coming to them in ole' Booger Woods.

20. "The Ride" by David Allan Coe

Country singer David Allan Coe describes a hitchhiker's encounter with the ghost of legendary singer Hank Williams Sr. in this 1983 ballad. They ride together from Montgomery to Nashville as the ghost of Hank Williams Sr. warns him that stardom is "a long hard ride."

"I have no magic potion, although there are some who think I do." - Lance Armstrong, the disgraced American cyclist who was stripped of his seven Tour de France titles after evidence of performing-enhancing drug use.

"I have no magic potion, although there are some who think I do." - Lance Armstrong, the disgraced American cyclist who was stripped of his seven Tour de France titles after evidence of performing-enhancing drug use.

21. "The Addams Family Theme" by Vic Mizzy

Anyone who has ever seen an old rerun of this memorable television show (or the original) can recall the Vic Mizzy theme song. It's a short, snappy tune that celebrates this macabre family with a style all their own. The original television series ran from 1964-66.

22. "Ghost In This House" by Alison Krauss

Alison Krauss (1999) provided the most haunting, angelic rendition of this song which describes a heartbroken spouse who has been abandoned and is living in the depths of depression. Whereas once she was alive with fire and passion for her husband, she is now a mere ghost, confining herself to the house.

The woman doesn't even go through the motions of picking up the mail or answering the door or phone. She has given up all semblance of living. The wife compares herself to a ghost, and the listener senses that she has one foot in the grave already.

23. "Nightmare On My Street" by DJ Jazzy Jeff and the Fresh Prince

DJ Jazzy Jeff and the Fresh Prince tell a nightmarish tale about how the homicidal movie character Freddy Krueger is chasing after him. If the rapper in the 1988 hip-hop song sounds familiar, that's because the Fresh Prince would later become known by his real name, Will Smith.

24. "Creepin'" by Eric Church

Just as ghosts can haunt one's house, Eric Church (2012) describes a former lover as creeping into his memory. As her memory infiltrates every aspect of his daily life, he is unable to forget her, and he finds it unnerving:

Your caffeine kiss and nicotine love,
Got under my skin and into my blood,
That need you back comes over me,
Like ivy crawlin' up a hickory tree.
Just a creepin' Creepin' ... .

25. "Walk Like A Zombie" by HorrorPops

If you've never heard of this 2005 song, there's a good reason: it was released by a Danish rockabilly band, HorrorPops, and didn't exactly hit the top 40.

But the seven-plus minute song is catchy if you give it a listen. It's about a woman who is in love with a zombie. He makes her cry, wants to hold hands with her in the cemetery, prefers to live in isolation, and dreams of naming their kids Morticia and Fester.

She puts up with his bringing her dead flowers and howling at the moon because she loves the guy—rotting corpse and all.

"There's good reason why this fence divides.  Don't dare cross the lawn or come inside."

"There's good reason why this fence divides. Don't dare cross the lawn or come inside."

Patricia - It sounds like you enjoy Halloween like I do! Have a wonderful evening.

Patricia Scott from North Central Florida on October 08, 2019:

O many of these truly take me down the road to yesteryear. Monster Mash....yes, that brings back so many memories as do so many others. Thank you so much for sharing these with us....I am off to listen to many that I have not listened to in far too long. Angels are headed your way this evening. ps

Robert Sacchi on October 03, 2019:

I'm glad to read he's out of the hospital.

FlourishAnyway (author) from USA on October 03, 2019:

Bob - Thank you! He's out of the hospital. Had a pacemaker put in and it didn't go well.

Robert Sacchi on October 02, 2019:

Hope your dad is doing better.

FlourishAnyway (author) from USA on October 02, 2019:

Bob - Thanks for taking a look. I love Halloweentime. I'm a little late this year on decorating my yard because my dad has been in the hospital, but I look forward to scaring all the neighborhood kids soon with graves and skeletons in the yard.

Robert Sacchi on October 01, 2019:

Since it's now October I gave your list a look. Great list and videos. Your emotional baggage list is fun.

FlourishAnyway (author) from USA on October 08, 2018:

Natalie - Thanks for the suggestion! I added this one. I used to like in central Louisiana and visited New Orleans often.

Natalie Frank from Chicago, IL on October 08, 2018:

Grreat list! Maybe also Fortune Teller by the Iguanas? I fell in love with them when I was living in New Orleans.

Robert Sacchi on October 01, 2018:

Neil Rose, I think Bruce Willis started his own musical group in the 80s or 90s.

FlourishAway, I see you've added quite a bit to your list. Great going.

FlourishAnyway (author) from USA on October 01, 2018:

Nell - It's too bad we haven't heard more from him.

Happy Halloween! Thanks for reading.

Nell Rose from England on October 01, 2018:

I love it! and who knew Bruce Willis could sing? Whoo! great list and the music was cool!

FlourishAnyway (author) from USA on October 01, 2018:

Bob, Happy Halloween to you, too! I've been in Halloween mode for a couple weeks now because I love it so much. I added the Cher song to the playlist. Thanks for your suggestion.

Robert Sacchi on September 30, 2018:

I read this one a day early. Oh well, it's October 1 on the other side of the world. I love this article. Where to start:

Vicky Lawrence, best known as "Momma" in The Carol Burnette Show, sang the original "Lights Went out in Georgia", 1972.

"One eyed one horned flying purple people eater" besides the song itself what I find amusing is the positioning of comas change what is eating what.

There is "Witch Doctor", it's good to instruct boys coming of age to a girl. After that the boys might be singing, "They're coming to take me away".

"Bad Moon Rising", not about Halloween but it does fit the season.

The movies; "American Werewolf in London" and "From Dusk Till Dawn", have a good number of appropriate songs.

There is Cher's "Dark Lady", a fortune teller who sees an ironic fortune.

Boo! (I mean it in the seasonal, not the critical, sense.)

Shannon Henry from Texas on November 02, 2017:

You're very welcome. You know, I read before I submit and auto-correct still gets the best of me. Hopefully, you figured out what it was supposed to say. Can I murder it and call it a Halloween accident? So glad you like them. I thought you might. I think my favorite of those two is "Dance in the Graveyards."

FlourishAnyway (author) from USA on November 02, 2017:

shanmarie - I really, really loved Delta Rae. I had been unfamiliar with them before, and now I've got to hear more of their work! You've made a fan out of me. I've added your suggestions, so thanks so much! Hope your Halloween was a good one!

Shannon Henry from Texas on October 31, 2017:

Spooky!! Your play lists are such fun. Anyone can out a themed list together, but you include all the awesome extras that are fun to read.

I did a Halloween playist a year or two ago that is still on my hub profile page. I'd have to go see if it is still featured or not, though, but I remember having fun doing it. I called it a non-traditional okay list because I thought it was. However, judging by your list here, I may have been more traditional than I thought.

There's one or two by a group called Delta Rae that I included on my list. Love their sound. So spooky. "Dance in the Graveyard " and "Bottom of the River. " I did it kind of like I do my music website and included stories behind some of the songs I listed and the videos. "Bottom of the River" is just plain creepy and "Dance in the Graveyards" is more of a celebratory song, kind of like Dia de Los Muertos. You might like them. Feel free to include any others I may have listed here, too, if you care to take a look at my article.

FlourishAnyway (author) from USA on October 31, 2017:

Tamara - Hope you're having a Happy Halloween! Thanks for stopping by!

BBYCGN from Uninhabited Regions on October 31, 2017:

This is a particularly spooky I did not realize that there were so many scary-like songs.

I was the one who accidentally voted wrong on the poll as to who sang Dvil Woman. Oops..ha. I thought it was a trick question.

I have always enjoyed the beat of Love Potion No. 9. And, I like most of these songs. I will have to repeat my visit, here, in order to see which ones I want to move to my Playlist.

Thank you! xxx

FlourishAnyway (author) from USA on October 31, 2017:

Nell - You, too! I recently hosted a Trunk or Treat with the parent booster club I lead at my daughter's high school. I dressed as Little Red Riding Hood. It was a blast. I swear parents had as much fun as the kids. I love Halloween!

Nell Rose from England on October 30, 2017:

Yeah, Monster Mash! oh the memories! lol! great list and tunes! Have a great Halloween!

FlourishAnyway (author) from USA on October 26, 2017:

Mary - Thanks for the kind kudos. Have a frighteningly spooky Halloween. Hope you get all the candy you want.

Mary Norton from Ontario, Canada on October 26, 2017:

Great addition to 2017 Halloween celebration. Have a great one.

FlourishAnyway (author) from USA on October 24, 2017:

Dolores - Thanks for that addition! Have the spookiest of Halloweens!

Dolores Monet from East Coast, United States on October 24, 2017:

Hi Flourish - it isn't Halloween without the Monster Mash or Werewolves of London. How about Season of the Witch by Donovan or Dr. John?

FlourishAnyway (author) from USA on January 15, 2015:

colorfulone - Isn't that Bruce Willis talented? I was a bit taken aback. He should've pursued this talent more. Thanks for stopping by. Have yourself a terrific weekend.

Susie Lehto from Minnesota on January 15, 2015:

You have an excellent collection here. When I was still teaching, a cd of such songs was played in our classroom after the lights were turned off...the kids thought it was such fun.

I will have to play some of these for my baby grandson. He loves music of all kinds

Angels are on the way to you ps

FlourishAnyway (author) from USA on October 12, 2014:

Suzanne - Thanks for stopping by. Glad you enjoyed it.

I never knew there were so many songs appropriate for a Halloween party. I think 'Thriller' is the top song on your list, especially now that Michael Jackson's gone. Voted up and pinned.

Good Halloween pictures and great playlist! Always been partial to The Purple People Eater. Voted awesome.

DDE - Thanks, Devika, for stopping by. Have a great weekend!

Devika Primić from Dubrovnik, Croatia on October 10, 2014:

Interesting and so well thought of. Halloween can be so playful and your ideas are fearful.

Iris - Thanks for visiting! I can imagine you doing the Thriller dance. :)

Cristen Iris from Boise, Idaho on October 03, 2014:

What fun! I'll be singing to myself all day. I may even break out into the Thriller dance just because. Voted up and sharing.

Linda Crampton from British Columbia, Canada on October 01, 2014:

This is a fun and interesting hub, Flourish! I enjoyed it very much. Unlike the case in your other music hubs (which were great), I know a lot of the songs in this article. You've definitely started me thinking about Halloween!

FlourishAnyway (author) from USA on October 01, 2014:

Heidi - I'm right there with you! Thanks for reading. Have a groovy week!

Heidi Thorne from Chicago Area on October 01, 2014:

Okay, my faves will definitely reflect that I'm still stuck in the 70s & 80s: Ghostbusters, Thriller, Witchy Woman and I'm Your Boogie Man. Fun hub perfect to start off October!

FlourishAnyway (author) from USA on October 01, 2014:

Sha - I have no idea. Arms out like zombies, Frankenstein, mummies? And very stiff-legged? Just a guess. Or like you have a magic wand in your hand like a witch?

FlourishAnyway (author) from USA on October 01, 2014:

Jeannieinabottle - I love that profile picture. Before reading your most recent hub, I thought you had really changed. :-0

Shauna L Bowling from Central Florida on October 01, 2014:

Love it! I know and love most of these songs. By the way, how the hell do you dance to Monster Mash????

I had no idea Witchy Woman was written about Zelda Fitzgerald. Interesting.

Great hub, Flourish!

Jeannie Marie from Baltimore, MD on October 01, 2014:

This is a cool list. I never even thought of adding Abracadabra to a Halloween playlist. Thanks for sharing!

FlourishAnyway (author) from USA on October 01, 2014:

Faith Reaper - Thank you for stopping by and taking a look. Halloween is one of my favorite times! I just love it when the weather turns a bit brisker and it's pumpkin time. Have a wonderful week!

Faith Reaper from southern USA on October 01, 2014:

Flourish, you have brought back a lot of memories with all of these great songs. I remember all of them and now I, too, will be singing them all week long and stuck in my head like Bill. LOL

Great hub once again!

FlourishAnyway (author) from USA on October 01, 2014:

Bill Holland from Olympia, WA on September 30, 2014:

What a great list. I was smiling while reading those song titles, and now I'm singing and I fear I'll have Monster Mash stuck in my head all day long. Thanks a lot my friend. :)
