... and twenty-five other titles, many of them added this year.



  1. Yeah I think Michael Jackson's Thriller has to be near the top! I still remember that video & song. Cheers.

    1. I get freaked out every time I watch the music video of Thriller.

  2. I love Halloween themed music. You've got some classics here and awesome picks- I'm off to check out your playlist. :)

  3. It's just a jump to the left, and then a step to the ri-i-ight! I'm going to sing that the whole day now...!! Great list!

    Here's my Ten Pets you can get at Stephen King's Pet Shop

  4. I’ll be doing the time warp today while I do dishes. Great list!

  8. Oh, what a great idea! I hadn't heard this version of Hall of the Mountain King yet, but I really like it.

  9. Fun twist on the topic! I love Ghostbusters, Thrillers, and all the other classics.

    Happy TTT!

  10. It's funny that Thriller was playing on my playlist when I started reading your post. I'm happy you included Time Warp, that is such a fun song!

    Pam @ Read! Bake! Create!

  11. This is perfect! Sometimes I like to listen to creepy music while I read horror books, haha.

  12. I had a Halloween music CD when I was a kid. I'm pretty sure it had some of these songs on it. :)

  13. I love the variety of these songs and am glad to see Ghostbusters and Thriller inclued.

  14. Ghostbusters, The Monster Mash, and Werewolves of London are so fun! I Mannheim Steamroller is wonderful as well, though I mainly listen to the Christmas music. Here is our Top Ten Tuesday. Thank you!
