The title pretty much says it all.
Please include titles and artists, if possible.

My list, in no particular order includes:
  • The entire Nightmare Before Christmas soundtrack, but particularly This Is Halloween and Oogie Boogie's Song
  • Dead Man's Party by Oingo Boingo
  • The Phantom of the Opera (title song from the musical)
  • Weird Science by Oingo Boingo
  • Darkmoon Faire Carousel from World of Warcraft ( check it out )
  • The Time Warp from Rocky Horror
  • Over at the Frankenstein Place from Rocky Horror
  • Grim Grinning Ghosts by The Swingtips (the Disney Haunted Mansion song in the style of swing)
  • Kiss of the Spiderwoman (from the musical of the same name)
  • Underground by David Bowie from Labyrinth
  • Anything Can Happen on Halloween by Tim Curry
  • Werecow by Flippy T. Fishead
  • Love Potion Number 9
  • Poison Ivy as performed by The Nylons
  • Reefer Madness (the title song from the musical of the same name)
  • The Munsters Theme
  • Thriller by Michael Jackson
  • Halloween Theme by John Carpenter (from the original Halloween film)
  • Monster Mash by Bobby "Boris" Pickett
  • Tubular Bells by Mike Oldfield (this was featured in the original The Exorcist film)
  • Batman Theme (from the 1989 Batman soundtrack)
  • Twelve Days of Cryptmas by The Cryptkeeper (from the album Have Yourself a Scary Little Christmas)
  • Prologue from the Little Shop of Horrors soundtrack

Here are a couple Halloween-themed albums I think work really well for more subdued Halloween parties where loud background music would be inappropriate:
  • Halloween by Mannheim Steamroller
  • Halloween Cocktail Party
    This is exactly what the title implies, halloween-ish music done in classic cocktail music style. Perfect for the swanky cool cats on All Hallow's Eve. (Ignore the "spooky sounds" final track.)

D&D teaches all the important lessons in life - the low blow, the cheap shot, the back stab, the double cross. - Jerry Marsischky

Let them trap us. We have our swords. - Elric of Melnibone.

You try to get them to play the game, but all they want to do is play the rules. - Ardak Kumerian

I do not love the bright sword for its sharpness, nor the arrow for its swiftness, nor the warrior for his glory. I love only that which they defend - Faramir

And I forgot that too, until I saw Mussorgsky on your list.

Great stuff here! Lots of crossover with my own. I'll add...

Dragula by Rob Zombie

Turn Around by They Might be Giants (You don't get more Halloween than "...a paper-white mask of evil" singing a song.)
