The Most Popular Halloween Party Music Of All Time

I have always been a huge fan of all things Halloween. Even when we were small, my dad was very into Halloween makeup and costumes. Sure we had normal store bought costumes sometimes, but we also had full homemade costumes, complete with face paint, accessories and all the bells and whistles. To this day my dad (63) still dresses up completely. We would attend, even be a part of the haunted hay rides, haunted house events, and Halloween parties were always a must go to. As I got older and learned my way around a computer, I would run the music at our local Halloween party. Loading the playlist was the best part. There are so many songs that are just perfect for any Halloween party, and they never go out of style. As I was decorating this weekend, I had my Halloween playlist running in the background. It brought back so many great memories for me. If you are having a Halloween party this year, here is my list of MUST HAVE Halloween Party Music. I have also included a few affiliate links for your convenience at the bottom of this post where you can purchase most if not all of the songs on this list. Enjoy!
