I'd like to build the ultimate Halloween music playlist. Your help is appreciated.

Please submit your suggestions for a Halloween music playlist.

Halloween themed music, i.e. The Monster Mash, is an obvious choice but also any song with Halloween-esque themes and words in the title or lyrics. For example --

Black Magic Woman by Santana

Spooky by Atlantic Rhythm Section

The complete White Zombie discography

I Put a Spell on You by Screamin' Jay Hawkins


What's on your music player?

Thanks in advance.
