We can all agree that life would be infinitely better if we had a soundtrack playing in the background. Unfortunately, life is unfair and this isn’t possible. Fortunately though, we can make a playlist to mark every occasion.

Halloween is no exception. It’s definitely easier to get into the spirit (pun intended!) of things when you have an amazing playlist. And now that it’s almost Halloween, it’s time to bust out your spookiest songs. Feel like you don’t have the perfect playlist just yet? Look no further. Here are the 7 songs that you must have on your Halloween party playlist:

Thriller – Michael Jackson

Let’s just get this one out of the way! After all, no Halloween playlist is complete without this classic.

Ghostbusters – Ray Parker, Jr.

When the witches and the ghosts come trick-or-treating, who you gonna call?

(Don’t Fear) The Reaper – Blue Oyster Cult

Trying to put the moves on someone, this Halloween? This song is the perfect blend of spooky and romantic!

Time Warp – The Rocky Horror Picture Show Cast

When the blackness hits you and the void beckons, just do the Time Warp! Beware of the pelvic thrust, though. It might just drive you insane!

Psycho Killer – Talking Heads

Not only is Psycho Killer just the right amount of spooky, it also has a "killer" bassline. The perfect Halloween song, isn’t it?

Pet Sematary – Ramones

One of the Ramones’ biggest hits, this song was on the soundtrack for the Stephen King adaptation. If that isn’t fitting, what is?

Ghost Town – The Vaccines

There are a million songs about witches, monsters and other scary beings… But is there anything scarier than being alone in a deserted town?
