Plan on going to any Halloween parties this year or do ya just want some beats to put you in the spirit? From dance tunes to horror movie soundtracks here are some of our Halloween spooksters for a ghostly evening of fun.

Halloween Music - Thriller by Michael Jackson

Eeek! This '80s tune is the best Halloween shake-your-zombie-booty tune around. Thriller is about 15 minutes long, it's spooky and it's very danceable - not to mention it's classic Michael Jackson. It even includes a narrated part by a spooky-voiced guy named Vincent Price. It's perfect party music for a game of pin the tail on the werewolf or bobbing for brains. If you've never seen the video for Thriller, you should fix that - it's the video that Jennifer Garner's character in 13 Going on 30 can't get enough of!

Halloween Music - Monster Mash by Bobby "Boris" Pickett

Monster Mash is a song your parents probably heard at their parties and it's still going strong. It's an oldie from 1962 but it's become a classic tune at Halloween bashes. Monster Mash is also a good song to dance or twist to, especially if you are decked out in some sort of ghoulish costume. The bubbling noises of Igor experimenting in the lab are great!

Halloween Music - Ghostbusters by Ray Parker Jr.

Here's an anti-ghost song to rid your house of ghouls this October 31st. The song is the theme from the Ghostbuster movies. If you have any uninvited guests in your house, who ya gonna call? Ghostbusters!

Halloween Music - People Are Strange by The Doors

This tune is one of The Doors' eeriest tunes. Haunting organs, Jim Morrison's deep voice and the slow strum of the bass are enough to send a chill up your spine. People Are Strange was remade and can be heard in all its spooky best in the classic '80s movie The Lost Boys - a flick about vampires.

Halloween Music - The Rocky Horror Picture Show Soundtrack

Anything from The Rocky Horror Picture Show soundtrack is great to rock to, especially The Time Warp. Every year, moviegoers rush to theaters across North America dressed as their favorite characters to sing-a-long to the cult classic.

Halloween Music - Other Soundtracks

Other great movie or TV spooky themes include The X-Files, The Addams Family, The Exorcist, Jaws and Buffy The Vampire Slayer.
