My Halloween Playlist

On a recent episode of The Weekly Geek a listener asked about suggestions for a Halloween playlist. While I assume the questioner was asking about one for a party I decided to do a rundown of my own Halloween playlist. Keep in mind that this list was not made with a party in mind, but instead with the idea of it being played in the background on Halloween night while dealing with the trick or treaters in my front yard grave yard, and therefore cannot have cursing in it. If you have any suggested songs for me to add to this list, please let me know.

So without further ado, here is Void Munashii's Halloween playlist presented in more or less alphabetical order:

Where on earth did you get the Army of Darkness Techno remix? I had it years ago, but it's long since disappeared.

I downloaded it years and years ago, and have just managed to keep a hold of it as I have moved from computer to computer.
