Halloween Playlist

My wife decided it would be good to come up with a Halloween themed playlist. I'm always up for music-selection challenges, and together we came up with a pretty solid bunch of songs. There's probably a couple handfuls of appropriate songs that we missed, and if anyone can think of any others, drop that suggestion in the comments. Here's what we came up with:

The Addams Family Theme
Science Fiction, Double Feature (Rocky Horror Picture Show)
Alice Cooper - Feed My Frankenstein
Alice Cooper - Welcome To My Nightmare
The Classics IV - Spooky
The Cranberries - Zombie
The Decemberists - Shankill Butchers
Michael Jackson - Thriller
Ladytron - Ghosts
Ray Parker Jr. - Ghostbusters
Bobby Picket - Monster Mash
Nina Simone - I Put A Spell On You
Tegan & Sara - Walking With A Ghost
TV On The Radio - Wolf Like Me
Viva Voce - From The Devil Himself
Sheb Wooley - Purple People Eater
Warren Zevon - Werewolves of London

Not a bad list, right?

You're gonna get your blood sucked out

That's actually a pretty good list. A few more off the top of my head:

- Metallica, "The Thing That Should Not Be" and "Of Wolf and Man"
- Live, "Ghost"
- People in Planes, "Vampire"
- Black Sabbath, "Black Sabbath" and "Children of the Grave"
- anything by Rob Zombie (I'm not a fan at all, but you have to admit it fits)
- anything by Vampire Weekend (okay, that's entirely inappropos to Halloween other than the band name)

I'm sure there are even more.
