Halloween Music for Your Family Party

Updated on July 4, 2015

Music for a Halloween Family Party

I am hosting a family Halloween party this year and I was searching for Halloween music. The music I could find on the shelves were either "scary" Haunted House sounds or "new" Halloween songs that no one has ever heard of. I decided to create my own CD of songs that reflect the mood of Halloween. I found them in three different categories: TV theme songs, Movies, and General Halloween music. I hope you enjoy (and get ideas) my selections!

Halloween Music from TV Shows

While I was searching on the Internet for Halloween music, one site listed music from TV shows. Of course! I grew up in the '60's when there were several shows on that had a "spooky" feel to them. Addams Family and The Munsters were two of my favorite. Dark Shadows was a soap opera during that time and it was not one of my favorites. But I think it would appeal to the Twilight fans today! Casper was a TV show and more recently a movie. The theme song from the TV show is cute and silly. The music from the movie is like a lullaby, very pretty.

Halloween Music from Movies

There are a lot of movies that have music that can be used during the Halloween season. I have chosen some of my favorites: Ghostbusters, Bettlejuice, Rocky Horror Picture Show, and Nightmare Before Christmas. These are just fun songs - without the "scary" tones of something like Nightmare on Elm Street or Psycho.

General Halloween Music

My final category is general music that can be considered great for Halloween. They include: Monster Mash, Spiders & Snakes, Witch Doctor, Purple People Eater and Werewolves of London. There are so many more, but I did have to limit my selection! Again there are not the "scary" songs, but fun/funny songs!
