The Best Halloween Songs For Your Costume Party!

Updated on May 17, 2012

Happy Halloween!

For those of you that don't know, I'm a theatre-type. I love all things that have to do with theatre. Costumes are an important part of theatricality, therefore, Halloween has always been one of my favorite holidays for a long time now. I love the scary costumes, the strange costumes, the best looking costumes, but I also love the MUSIC!

So, with regards to my love of music, I've decided to post The Best Halloween Party Songs of All Time! If you don't agree with my party song choices, don't worry! You are welcome to voice your own opinions and tell us all what your choices would be.

Be sure to vote and comment on each choice!

Have fun & be safe!

Happy Halloween!

Best Halloween Party Songs - Number 5

Are you ready to be eaten by the one-eyed, one-horned flying purple people eater? No? Good. I was about to get worried for you! This party song is a must for ALL halloween parties! Originally written by Sheb Wooley and reaching the top of the charts in 1958, this chart-topping hit still has a great reputation for halloween party fun!

The Addams Family Theme

"Buh duh duh dum (snap, snap.) Buh duh duh dum (snap, snap.)" This song doesn't need an intro, but boy is the song's intro fun! "Buh duh duh dum (snap, snap.)" (Repeat two more times.) "They're creepy and they're spooky" etc. etc. etc. Your Halloween party simply cannot be without this song this year! View a youtube video of the entire theme song below, or by clicking here. It has a neat little crest commercial behind it to remind you of how old it is, I guess! (Don't forget to brush after all those Halloween treats!! And don't forget to vote below!)
