Free Halloween Music

Freegal, the free and legal website that gives you five free downloads per week and three free hours of daily commercial-free streaming music has many Halloween songs to choose from.

Songs from 60’s Groovy Freaks, Monsters, and Geeks: “Surfer Mash”-a song that has Igor and Dracula surfing while Frankenstein plays in the sand and The Graveyard 6 use tombstones for surf boards. “The Creeper”-Boris Karloff type voice for intro then instrumental that’s a little sneaky and a little jazzy. “Frankie And Igor at A Rock ‘n’ Roll Party”- Boris Karloff type voice for an intro and vampire voice at a party with music and cracking jokes the whole time. “Strolling Spooks”- slightly spooky instrumental. “Down in the Basement”-creaking doors open this slightly spooky instrumental with a 60’s vibe. “Monster Surfing Time”- slighlty spooky instrumental with an occasional growl, vampire laugh, and howl. Or try “Spooky”, “The Boogie Man”, or “Cha-Cha With the Zombies”.

“Night of the Vampire”-an instrumental that starts with a creaking door, a storm, and a screaming cat by The Moontrekkers from The Greatest Instrumentals 1934-1962. From the same album we have “Werewolf” by The Frantics which begins with the quote “Even a man whose heart is pure and says his prayers at night, can change to a wolf when the wolfbane blooms and the full moon shining bright” (which can be heard on the Wolfman movies which the library owns) and has plenty of growls and snarls (that sound so real they creep me out) complete with a howl at the end.

Or try:

  • “Love Potion No. 9”
  • “Little Red Riding Hood”
  • “Monster Hop” sung by Bert Convy from Halloween Songs of All Time
  • “I Put A Spell On You”-Screaming Jay Hawkins
  • “The Skeleton in the Closet”,“Nightmare”, two cute old timey numbers by Artie Shaw
  • “Witches’ Ride”, an old timey number by Charles Williams and The Queen

    Or maybe you would like something classical? “Try Toccata & Fugue in d minor” by Johann Sebastian Bach

    Or “Danse Macabre” by Camille Saint-Saens which is based on a poem and instrumentally tells the tale of a skeleton playing a violin and waking the dead to have a dance and then as the dawn approaches playing them back to sleep.
