Blogtober - Day 4 - The Ultimate Halloween Playlist

In last night's post I mentioned that we have a few Halloween parties penciled in for the end of the month. Two of these are children's parties. You know the kind - sweaty church hall, balloons popping,  hot dogs, lots of over excited children dressed as small demons fighting each other while off their heads on fruit shoots etc etc. Thankfully the third party (due to take place slightly earlier on the 14th) is an adult's only affair and I have been tasked with creating the ultimate playlist. This is what I've got so far:

Upon arrival (cool songs to entice the guests in)
Highway to Hell - AC/DC
I'm on fire - Kasabian
Bulletproof - La Roux
Shake Senora (from Beetlejuice)

Timeless classics (gimmicks and songs that nobody really likes that much anymore but it's the law to play them at Halloween)
Thriller - Michael Jackson
Ghostbusters theme tune
Timewarp - Rocky Horror Picture Show
Monster mash - Bobby Pickett

Bangers (for when the party is in full swing)
Disturbia - Rihanna
She-wolf - Shakira
The monster - Eminem
Tainted Love - Marilyn Manson
Poison - Alice Cooper

Winding down tunes (a polite way of indicating it's time to bugger off home)
I miss you - Blink 182
Ghosts - Laura Marling
I put a spell on you - Nina Simone
Stay - Shakespeare's Sister (because Cher Lloyd sang it on X Factor and it was proper haunting)

So there you have it, there's still work to be done and any other spooky themed songs you can think of would be gratefully received. I can see me milking this Halloween party theme during Blogtober...I've also been tasked with cocktail making but that can be another post!
