Thirteen songs for Halloween

Posted By on Mon, Oct 31, 2011 at 2:12 PM



It may be Monday, but at least it’s Halloween. Here are 13 songs to get you into the spirit of the day. Some are classics, and some are much more recent.

We start with the deliciously creepy Screamin’ Jay Hawkins and make our way through twisted, sad, fun, campy and disturbing.

We end with Russian composer Modest Mussorgsky’s terrifying “Night on Bald Mountain.” Even as an adult, and even without Disney’s Fantasia animation, “Bald Mountain” is, to me, the scariest piece of music ever written.
