Top 67 Halloween Tunes

Top 67 Halloween Tunes

So, the other day I was thinking about making the “ultimate collection” of tunes for Halloween. (You know, like on the commercials for “Now that’s what I call Music" CD’s) After the Monster Mash and Thriller, I thought I’d end up with a dozen or so tunes…not 67. Sure, some of these aren’t specifically “Halloween” tunes, but they all have the season’s flavor. (I especially enjoyed Are you ready for Freddy, where Freddy Krueger actually raps!)  OK, enjoy.  Oh, did I miss any?
