This was a short list of some great party songs that you can enjoy this Halloween. To make your party even better and livelier, try procuring the videos of some of these songs, especially the spooky scary ones (such as MJ's Thriller). That will make your party all the more enjoyable (not to mention eerie!). Additionally, you can also try getting your hands on a few samples of background music, theme music, or the soundtrack of some well-known horror films. That will not only give a slightly different dimension to your playlist, but can also prove to be handy for its eerie sound effect during some of your Halloween games. Hope you found this list of songs useful. Happy Halloween! Have a blast!
