Halloween day 21: the ultimate Halloween music playlist

Everyone has their own personal playlist for Halloween of fun songs. Well, today I present for you a list of some great classic and soundtrack music that should be on everyone halloween music playlist. Not only will you get a thrill listening to each one, but you're ears will love you and thank you for the awesomeness of this music. And, all your "cultured" friends will be impressed with your selection of music. 

In no particular order:

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 

This is in every movie and it should be because it is that powerful. 

Again, no brainer. If not for yourself, do it for the kids. 

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.

  1. I just found your blog. Your play list is awesome!
    I've listened to almost all of them. Good selection! Thanks for sharing!

  2. Love your choices, I listened to them all. Their are a few I haven't heard, but most are classics! When my kids were little and we waited for trick or treaters, I always put a tape player on the porch with some of this music. Fun memories:)

  3. I'm hosting a Fabulous Fall party over at Not So Simple Housewife and I'd love for you to link this up! We are celebrating Fall and giving me and everybody else some great inspiration. We are looking for crafts, decor, food, and more! I'd love for you to add this and any other fall posts you may have!

  4. I'm really enjoying all your HP posts & reading about Halloween (my favorite holiday) in the middle of summer. Night on Bald Mountain is a great scary song. When I was small we lived next to a creepy run down Victorian. All the neighbor kids thought it wad haunted. The owners were very nice guys & on Halloween my 4 siblings & I danced around their yard while fog & NOBM streamed out of their front door! I hadn't thought of that in years :) thanks


We LOVE hearing what you think. Thank you for your sweet comments!
