15 Best Halloween Songs of the ‘80s




You might not think of the ‘80s as being a good decade for Halloween-appropriate songs. We don’t have that “Monster Mash,” do we? No “Black Magic Woman.” No "Werewolves of London." No "Don’t Fear the Reaper." Heck, even “Runnin’ With the Devil” by Van Halen was late ‘70s. 

But truth is actually there were a ton of spooky tunes in the ‘80s that are best played each year on Oct. 31. Here are some of our favorites, ranked by the random spirits and spooks of the darkest hour:
