Limelight’s Halloween Playlist


Halloween is the most wonderful time of the year… for college kids at least. Costumes, parties, piles of junk food, and your favorite spooky things all come out.

What would Halloween be without the best music (and music videos) to go with it. Here is a carefully selected of some Halloween classics and a few others that are worth a listen (and a watch)!

“This is Halloween” – Marilyn Manson

Kicking it off with what should be the title track to this playlist. A classic song song from a classic movie, a Halloween must-watch. Let’s face it, we’re all watching this movie through Christmas.

“One Eyed One Horned Flying Purple People Eater”

Throwing in a throwback. This one can bring back memories of those wild elementary school Halloween parties. You know, the ones where 25 nine-year-olds get hyped up on sugar and drive the chaperones crazy? 

“Thriller” – Michael Jackson

Does anything need to be said for the one and only, the great Michael Jackson?

“New Perspective” – Panic! At The Disco

This one may not seem totally Halloween themed, but the video heads that direction. If you’ve never seen this video, give it a go. It’s, well, interesting. 

“What’s This?” – Fall Out Boy

Bringing it back to “The Nightmare Before Christmas” with this one, but with a little bit of a twist. Here’s a cover of another song from our favorite movie.

“Monster Mash” – Bobby “Boris” Pickett

Here’s another throwback. Never forget those elementary school parties. Never.

“Monster” – Skillet

Halloween would be lost without it’s monster theme so here’s something to make that theme glaringly obvious. 

“Highway to Hell” – AC/DC

Because we all know where the real Halloween parties rage. 

“Ghostbusters” – Ray Parker Jr.

Coming at you with another movie classic just for good measure.

“Halloween” – Misfits 

Here’s some punk for your spooky day. The Misfits are probably one of the most perfect bands for Halloween who never intended to be. 

The Addams Family (Original Cast Recording) Theme

Snap. Snap. 

“Scary Monster” – David Bowie

Got that monster theme yet? Just making sure.

“Bark at the Moon” – Ozzy Osbourne

In Ozzy’s world it’s always Halloween. But can you blame him? It’s pretty great.

We hope you enjoy this playlist. Maybe you got a little inspiration to explore a little to make it a full party length. Happy Halloween bashing and monster mashing!
