Let's Get Those Zombies Ghosts and Ghouls up and Dancing
Every now and then a little gruesomely spooky music is exactly what the witch doctor prescribes. So tell Dracula to grab his bride and the Zombies to step to the side because it is time to wind this party up a notch.
These haunting chanting ranting songs will have ghosts floating in through the walls and witches flying in through the roof. Everyone is going to want a space on the dance floor.
To get your guests dancing and a prancing there are indeed some hauntingly bewitching songs that will do just this. Halloween is one of those occasions when you want party songs that will get even the zombies up and moving their feet to the beat.
So cover your ears and hang onto your heart for these are the musical compilations that will have ghouls snapping their fingers, twitching their toes, and rattling their old bones.
Your Location adds Character. Your Music Adds the Atmosphere.
Halloween is one of those occasions when the addition of music that is ghoulish enough to make your skin crawl is very important. It sets the mood for your party and creates an atmosphere that will rock the roof right off your mansion. Even the undead come out when they hear it.
If you have ever been to a really great Halloween party you know what I mean. Darkened lighting, creepy background music, good food, blood red beverages, and a blood curdling scream erupting every now and then is the perfect mix to make any event a hit.
You really do not want any dead meat hanging out on the couch at your party, of course it helps a bit if you can drag old uncle Henry out of his crypt and dust him off a bit first before he attends.
Enough of this chatter, let's put on some music that still has a heartbeat and get those freaky laboratory built people up onto their feet.
One for the Zombies - It's the Zombie Jamboree
Halloween Guest Rules List:
Keep your body fluids to yourself:
No drool, stool, pus, or blood products allowed outside of the body.
Absolutely no biting, scratching, or clawing:
There are enough body fluids floating around at this party without bringing out any more.
No stabbing or axing of the other guests:
Please do this on your own time and not ours.
No eating the other guests:
This is a respectable party and we expect the werewolves and zombies to keep their appetites in check.
No flying around the room please:
This applies to witches as well as to fairies, angels, bats, gargoyles, and other winged creatures. Someone could get hurt and the droppings are annoying.
This is the only night of the year when you are asked to let the animal in you out so let that beast howl.
This Song is for Zombies Who Like to Take Things Slow
If you are Alive Then Prove it on the Dance Floor
This is Halloween music to get up and dance to so prepare to shake that cute little booty that you brought to the party with you. Shake those bones till you find some beastie to snuggle up with on the floor. Find a ghoul friend or two. Ha! What a way to plaster a grin onto a ghost's linens.
You Can't Beat the Classics for Creating the Perfect Party Mood
The old classic Halloween songs really are some of the best. Some of this stuff is capable of rocking the socks right off your grandmother. If you like a little drool with your cool then a few of the old classics are the music that is perfect for you. (Ever notice how all the best albums say they are for kids?)
Thriller, Monster Mash, Wooly Bully, and the Theme from the Adams Family are just a few of the songs that fall into this category of music. Some of these old classics tunes can really tingle the bones on a skeleton's spine
The old songs really are the best and these are some of the best to fit in with Halloween: Bad Moon Rising, Ghostbusters, Halloween Limbo, Can't Touch This, Haunted House, Mr. Roboto, Thriller, and United Werewolves.
I know that some Zombies have difficulty holding themselves together but pick your head up off the floor and drag that moth eaten body up to dance. Shake it, fake it, twirl it, stumble it around, and stake it. The best thing about dancing on Halloween night is that almost any move will make it. Do the zombie hustle babe or the creepy coffin crawl.
Werewolves of London: This One is for the Old Folks in the Room
Love Your Rock and Roll Classics?
The rock and roll hits Witchy Woman, Werewolves of London, Purple Haze, Abracadabra, Cat Scratch Fever, Riders on the Storm, and Wild Thing are perfect for Halloween. These are songs that will have the tombstones in your back yard trembling in anticipation.

How About Hosting a Hootenanny? Yeehaw and Gittyup Cowboy!
Put a twist on your party and host a Halloween Hootenanny dance. It is an event that is as attractive as eating worm infested gruel. Absolutely yummy. Which just goes to prove that ghouls, ghosts, and creepy half built lab creatures really do so like to move if given the right venue to attend. But seriously folks a country Halloween dance can be bootifully delightful if you get the music right.
Get up and shake that thing! Do the axe murderer ramble and the dead man's drool. There are some songs that just naturally will have your guests toes tapping and grizzled boney fingers snapping. Which goes to prove that ghostly creatures of the night like to hootenanny too.
Here are just a few good Country Western Halloween theme songs.

Every Great Party Needs a few Games with Prizes
Everyone likes to win stuff and this applies to vampires, zombies, witches, fairies, and rabbits who have bounced out of a magical black hat. Let's dream up a few great Halloween contests and games to feature at your bash.
There are plenty of great ways to give stuff away at a Halloween party and the traditional costume judging is one. Traditionally prizes are handed out for best costume, funniest costume, most creative etc. so at your event shake things up a little differently so no one quite knows what to expect.
Get creative and come up with some really funny prize categories such as ghoul most likely to eat another guest, first witch to arrive at the party, monster least likely to go home alone, guest most likely to haunt a graveyard after dark, person missing the most body parts, and hippest zombie at the party.
Don't forget to give out dance prizes too. Best zombie dance, witchful wooing, werewolf howl, and creature crawl would be nice tags to apply to these prizes.
