Top 19 Halloween-Themed Songs (LISTEN)

Posted: Updated:

Who said dancing to eerie horror sounds doesn’t rock a party? Well, that may very well be true for any other month aside from October.

As Halloween steadily approaches this week, we decided to take a look at a few of our favorite spooky-themed songs, past and present, to assist in creeping your friends out on your nearest dance floor. And while, Ray Parker Jr. declared that he wasn’t “afraid of a ghost” on his popular 1984 hit, “Ghostbuster” and Michael Jackson announcing that the night was “Thriller,” we chose a few non-traditional hits to mix it up.
