Help Me Update My Halloween Playlist!

I’ve been working on monster-and-ghoul-themed columns for a Critical Intel Halloween series, but my yearly Halloween playlist is getting a little stale.

I need song suggestions to keep my mad scientist lab a-rockin’ while I sew together all the myths and legends I’ve dug up.

Here’s how the playlist stands now:

This is Halloween — Nightmare Before Christmas

Weird Science — Oingo Boingo
I Put a Spell On You — Creedence Clearwater Revival

Dry Bones — Fred Waring
(Don’t Fear) The Reaper — Blue Oyster Cult
Season of the Witch — Donovan
Sympathy for the Devil — The Rolling Stones
Beetlejuice: Main Title — Danny Elfman
Dead Man’s Party — Oingo Boingo
White Ghost Shivers Ball — White Ghost Shivers
Mr. Crowley — Ozzy Osbourne
That Old Black Magic — Kevin Spacey
Oogie Boogie’s Song — Rodrigo y Gabriella, Nightmare Revisited
