Halloween and Horror Music Collection

Old Phonograph

I’ve collected many lovely, creepy, bizarre, melancholy-filled, and obscure songs over the years. In the list below, I’ll continue adding the best of my collection and ask that the community also make suggestions for the list.

Notes for this list:

  • I’ve done my best to make sure that I’m linking to the most accurate, original, and official versions of the intended songs on Amazon, because in some cases, it’s difficult to find the right one and you may accidentally buy a cheap knock-off instead. If next to the “Buy Now” link, you see a ?, this means that I wasn’t able to find the right version in digital form and you will have to either buy an old CD or vinyl copy of the soundtrack (that can get expensive) or track down the song through some other means, like YouTube.
  • I’ve excluded the word “The” from the beginning of titles for easier alphanumeric browsing and sorting.
  • When clicking on a “Buy Now” link you’ll be able to preview the song first.
  • The list is sortable, just click the column header.
  • For legal reasons, I of course cannot share the actual music files or link to where they might be downloaded from. Some songs are of my own creation, public domain, or I otherwise have permission to share for listening purposes here, but I ask that you please build your collection from Amazon, which will also go to help us out by using our affiliate links.
  • In the comments below, please let me know your suggestions or if you find any mistakes. I’d love to hear what some of your all-time favorite Halloween or horror songs are too. I may not include all suggestions in the official list, but I’ll make an effort to check out all the suggestions and see if they’re a good fit.

Thank you and enjoy.

This public list will only ever just scratch the surface of my entire private collection. Just to list them takes a lot of time to fact-check. With that said, there’s so much more to come…

UPDATE — Make sure to listen to our Radio, powered by Dead Air, where you can hear many more songs, some of which I personally curated.
