This one is one of my favorites, and their couldn't be a more perfect name for this song.
This is a MUST. Seriously. GET IT on your list NOW!!
Phantom of the Opera main theme by Andrew Lloyd Webber
Need I say anything about this one?? Although, this might make your kids just act crazy.
Night on Bald Mountain by Mussorgsky
This is not for the faint of heart. Although a little dark, it is deep and rich and screams Halloween. The best part is that it has a happy ending. Read the story here
Carmina Burana [O Fortuna] by Carl Orff
This is in every movie and it should be because it is that powerful.
Hedwig's (Harry Potter theme song) by John Williams
Again, no brainer. If not for yourself, do it for the kids.
Double Trouble (Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban)by John Williams
This one is fun because it not only is from Harry Potter, but the words are based off the witches chant in Macbeth.
Ride of the Valkrie by Richard Wagner
This one is not as well known, but i think belongs in this playlist. Especially since the name has "infernal dance" in it.
My husband asked if I put it on here because Darth Vader is a Villain. I told him no, it's because Darth Vader induces fear to those around him.
Mozart's requiem might be an uncommon one to find on a halloween playlist, but I think it belongs. After all, it was written for a funeral...And it is truly a beautiful and heart wrenching piece.
