monster music

If you’re looking for Halloween music and horror music to set the tone at your next horror party, you’ve come to the right place. For everything about my music, including original songs I recorded, remixes I’ve done, and my Internet radio show, check out my music obsession page. Stay right here for the monster music!

To get in the mood as you peruse the list, you can listen to this techno rave version of John Carpenter’s Halloween theme as done by…me! Actually, it’s a track I masterminded with my music partner when I was in a synthpop duo.

This is it. This is every song I have in my playlist to get me in the spirit during the month of October. Since I’m as much of a music whore as I am a horror whore, this list covers it all. There’s the obvious and the obscure. Music from every decade since the beginning of the RnR era. Pop. Heavy Metal. Rap. New Wave. Punk. Goth. Disco. Electro. Techno. Motion picture scores. What’s on your Halloween playlist?
