There's a great CD comp called Halloween Hootenany.  It's filled with garage rock & rockabilly tracks.  It would be great for your party.  It has tracks from reverand horton heat, southern culture, los straightjackets, etc.

It was a huge hit at my college radio station.

Yep.  Seconded!  I own it, and I listen to it even when it's not Halloween...
HH at Amazon

I must get this CD and listen to it year round...even if it's just for Rev Horton Heat.  Smiley

I really really like the New Wave Halloween CD- It stays in my cd book all year long.  I was excited the other day because it's appropriate to listen to it, now!  Hooray!

This is the track listing:
1. The Time Warp - Rocky Horror Picture Show   
2. Everyday Is Halloween - Ministry   
3. Devil In My Car - B-52's   
4. Dead Man's Party - Oingo Boingo 
5. Pet Sematary - Ramones   
6. Theme From Halloween - Mx-80 Sound       
7. The Munsters theme - Comateens       
8. The Creature From The Black Lagoon - Dave Edmunds     
9. Halloween - Siouxsie & The Banshees       
10. Halloween - Dream Syndicate       
11. Halloween - Sonic Youth       
12. Halloween - Dead Kennedys 
13. Halloween - Misfits       
14. Halloween - Mudhoney     
15. Creature With The Atom Brain - Roky Erickson & The Aliens 

I *heart* Siouxie- there are a ridiculously large amount of songs titled "halloween", it's pretty reidiclous.  I think I found this cd as a halloween shop for like, five bucks one year- I'm glad I did.

Other good bands- Rasputina is awesome, Bauhaus makes good background creepiness, Poe's "Haunted" cd is pretty decent, the soundtrack to "Requiem for a Dream" was a nice intersperser at my party, especially the "winter" track...there's a million!  Ohh, I have to go to the record shop.  Right freaking now.

You can hear samples if these by Mannheim Steamroller. I love their Christmas music and the halloween CD's are cool too. Hope you like!  Grin

Groovie Ghoulies!!!  C'mon, "Fun in the Dark" + "Re-animation Festival" are the best punk albums for Halloween. 

'If you don't want me starin' at you night an' day,
Here's what you're gonna have to do
You'll have to sew my eyes up real, real tight
Cuz I become a zombie around you'

My fav songs are:
(She's My) Vampire Girl
The Spell Is On
Ivy Says
Graveyard Girlfriend
Satisfy Me
and a sample of the lyrics above are from Zombie Crush

and i totally agree with slackferno:  Rocklobster by the B-52s doesn't seem related, but it awesome, and it's a long song

I am interested in Halloween Rinchies (round inchies) to make bottle cap magnets.

I second the classical stuff- it gets used in every other horror movie produced it's got to be good!

For emphasis:
Tocata and Fuge in G- Bach
In the Hall of the Mountain King- great modern version by Apocolyptica
Night on Bald Mountain- (Fantasia soundtrack)
Rites of Spring- Stravinsky (don't let the title fool you, very violent music)

Here's two recent songs:

Gnarls Barkley "The Boogie Monster" from album St. Elsewhere

RJD2 "The Horror" from album Dead Ringer

Brainbug "Nightmare"  there are bunches of different mixes of this, you can definately hear them on the itunes store, amazon doesn't have any sound clips.. sinister strings was my original favremix, but i like tall paul and psycho radio, too

Dj Shadow "Organ Donor" from album Entroducing OR there's Organ Donor (Extended Overhaul) from album Preemptive Strike, depending on which one you like...  the "original" is simpler, the extended one has some nice scratching towards the end and some added musical textures

if you want an entire cd at some point for a party, you could try and see if you like Amon Tobin's whole album "Bricolage" for an interesting alternative sound, it has no lyrics on it

i also added "Li'l Red Riding Hood" by Sam the Sham and the Pharoahs to my mix-- he does a good howl

Ooh... I simply adore this thread (and thanks to anyone who resurfaced it! It's quite the treasure trove of music!)

I am another who listens to this kind of stuff year round (among many other items), and some of my favourite bands (Misfits!! - but only in the Danzig era for me, Groovie Ghoulies Smiley - met them!, Rev Horton Heat!, Screamin Jay Hawkins & Procul Harum... ah...) have been listed.

Some more bands that I don't remember seeing listed:

Death rock (not to be confused with death metal!! - pretty much all death rock is Halloween-y): 45 Grave, Blitzkid, Balzac, Black Heart Procession, Cinema Strange, Cancerslug, Murderdolls. . .

Death metal (some of the more Halloween-y ones): Candlemass, Helloween, Danzig, Samhain

A bit of more "mainstream" metal: Marilyn Manson & Rob Zombie (have these been listed??), Monster Magnet

J-Rock (from Japan & in Japanese - I think these bands sound especially Halloween-y): Malice Mizer, D'espairs Ray, Dir En Grey

Some Glory metal: Nightwish (the cover of Phantom of the Opera is to die for Wink ), Hammerfall, L'ame Immortelle

Horror punk: Calabrese, and some more psychobilly: Horrorpops

And a classic... maybe I just missed the mention, but Bauhaus (Bela Lugosi's Dead!)
