"The Children of the Night, What Music They Make" -
10 of My Favorite Halloween Songs

Several years back I made an annual series of mix tapes for friends around this time of year, gathering ghoulish delights and ghastly tunes into a bubbling cauldron of Halloween music I called Altogether Ooky, in honor of one of my all-time favorite TV shows, The Addams Family.  One day, I will lay out for you the irrefutable arguments as to why The Addams Family was leaps and bounds better than The Munsters (I hear the naysayers gnashing their teeth already!), but for now I share with you ten terrifying tricks and treats - some of my favorite Halloween songs.  Listen, if you dare....MUAHAHAHAHAHA!
1. The Birthday Party - "Release The Bats"

2. HorrorPops - "Ghouls"

Horrorpops - Ghouls by xMalicexKittyx

3. Landscape - "Norman Bates"

4. The Fuzztones - "The Witch"

5. Screaming Tribesmen - "Date With A Vampyre"

6. Persian Claws - "Ghostified"

7. The Fleshtones - "I Was A Teenage Zombie"

8. The Misfits - "Vampira"

9. Social Distortion - "Mommy's Little Monster"

10. Siouxsie & the Banshees - "Halloween"

Obviously, there were many great tunes I left off the list (hell, you could pull a decent list of ten from The Misfits alone!), so now it's your turn. What are some of your favorites?
