Between getting your fake cobwebs to stick on the door properly and finding enough red food coloring to make a blood tub, planning a Halloween party can be quite difficult. The music, however, is the easy part, because there are so many great songs out there about werewolves, ghosts, witches, and generic (but still spooky) monsters.
Herewith, a compilation of 34 of the best songs for all your Halloween party needs. There are classics (Michael Jackson's "Thriller"), new classics (Rihanna's "Disturbia"), and of course, a few iconic theme songs to set the perfect terrifying mood. Now go forth and do the monster mash.
And one more pro tip: If you're having a party, hide a portable speaker in the bathroom and play instrumental songs like the Halloween and Suspiria themes on a loop. Then sit back and wait for them to scream.
