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

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.
