Every year, about this time, we pull out our collection of Halloween music. Soundtracks, cds, mixes related to Halloween. Though we use them for our Halloween costume party and for trick or treating night on the 31st, we also use them to motivate and inspire as we decorate and prepare for fall.
I have a MUSIC page under MEDIA on our website (check the drop down menu) where I list about %65 of our collection.
Every year I scour for new Halloween related singles and albums. We have a wide range in music tastes and a wide range of party invitees so our collection is all over the board.
One of our favorite “newer” songs is ZOMBIES ATE MY NEIGHBORS. I think I added it about 2008. We just walk around singing this song. I just found a little video they made for the song.
Another one we enjoy is HILLBILLY HALLOWEEN
One of our favorite Halloween albums is HALLOWEEN HOOTENANNY and one of the songs we love is NO COSTUME, NO CANDY. (ain’t it the truth…come on people…you should be ashamed to send your kid to someone’s door with no costume…hello yard sales, Goodwill, and Dad’s closet!!). Enjoy the song via youtube below:
I have spent hours and hours on Amazon.com searching mp3 with every word you might associate with Halloween. If we start a party at 7, we start the music at 6 and it never repeats until after 2am. That’s pretty good.
