Halloween is the time of the year when all the ghouls, goblins and spooks come out. It is a fun time of dressing up in costumes and becoming someone else, even if it is just for one night.
This is the holiday that brings out what is considered the dark side of music, but it can also bring out the fun side of music. Classic songs like the “Monster Mash” and “The Purple People Eater” have become staples at Halloween parties. Even the theme to The Adams Family television show! There are so many other songs that have become popular for Halloween parties that the list could go on and on.
We’ve put together a list of some great music from different genres including punk, metal, a bit of country, blues, and some classic rock tunes that will get even the most ghoulish ghouls up and dancing at your 2014 Halloween party for adults!
