Spooky Music Makes the Party

The best way to create a festive and eerie mood for your Halloween Party is to make sure your music is right for the occasion. Whether you are throwing a dance party, a kid's party, or just trying to scare the bejeebers out of the neighbors, this lens makes it easy for you to choose the perfect music for your party. Forget about spending hours researching songs with "spooky" or "scary" or "monster" in the title. All the work is done for you, right here. Just scroll down and see for yourself...if you dare!

Halloween Dance Party Music

Less of the eerie organ music, this list will really get your party going and your zombies dancing. And of course, the zombie dance we love the best tops the list. When you want to energize the whole party, just start playing Thriller. It's a great icebreaker. Then jam on through the night with these other monstrously good tunes.

Kid's Halloween Party Music

The music on this list is a cross between traditional spooky music, as well as fun, character-themed music, to go along with all of the various costumes the kids will be wearing this year- from scary to sweet. This list includes some cartoon theme songs, too, because you know there's going to be at least one "Spongebob" in the crowd.

For a fun kid's party game, try having a HALLOWEEN LIMBO CONTEST to the song "Halloween Limbo Rock"

If it's SCARY you're looking for, Horror Movie Theme Songs, like the ones below, are great for setting the creepy mood!

      That playlist for adult parties actually sounds like it would be a pretty great playlist to shuffle through. Great job on the selection!

      At Halloween I'm more into the music than the costumes. You've certainly put together a comprehensive list. I like spooky creaky sounds too. We'll definitely be using those to entertain trick-or-treaters. Happy Halloween!

      I love Halloween and I love playing spooky music for the Trick or Treaters. Have you ever heard of Nox Arcana? I put speakers outside by the spooky Halloween lawn decorations and play some of their spooky music when the kids show up. Great spooky Halloween fun!
