If you are running a Halloween Rotation today, what are some of the songs? I. E. Thriller by Michael Jackson, Halloween by Ministry, This is Halloween by Jack Skellington ...

Jumpin' Gene Simmons - Haunted House
Mike Oldfield - Tubular Bells
Ran-Dells - The Martian Hop
Redbone - Witch Queen Of New Orleans
Rolling Stones - Sympathy For The Devil
Santana - Evil Ways
Screamin' Jay Hawkins - I Put A Spell On You
Stevie Wonder - Superstition & Skeleton
Ted Cassidy - The Lurch
Warren Zevon - Werewolves Of London
The Sweet - Hell Raiser
Manhattan Transfer - Twilight Zone/Twilight Tone
Jayhawks - The Creature (From Outer Space)
...and a bunch more of the usual suspects.

I started playing Halloween yesterday (October 30). I did run both Elton John's Funeral For A Friend/Love Lies Bleeding and Orson Welles' War Of The Worlds last night.

I'm playing two Halloween songs per hour. I also have an imaging liner for Halloween that runs before each of those songs.

Hope that helps a little, stevewa. :cool: ;D

I've not even played Dance with the devil or Monster mash today so far...  :bash:

Mind I don't generally do Halloween... Did once about 23 years ago as Uncle Fester!  (Go Figure)

I'm running Artists Like Alice Cooper & Rob Zombie, as well as songs with any tie in to a Halloween theme in the title.  So stuff that has Hell, Ghost, Spook(y), etc.  That way I'm not sacrificing my rock format.

Thanks for your replies, some of those songs are new to me, I’ll need to find them and listen!
