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 versions of songs on iTunes because in some cases, it’s difficult to find the original and you may accidentally buy a cheap cover version. So, if I cannot find the proper original version (or popular version) of a song, this will be marked with “N/A” instead and you’ll have to track down the proper version through other means.
  • I’ve excluded the word “The” from titles for easier alphanumeric browsing.
  • 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 iTunes, which will also go to help me out by using my 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 gems 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.
