Hey groovy ghoulies, I'm starting to compile song possibilities for a Halloween party playlist and could use some help. My musical tastes run mostly toward classic rock from the 60s, 70s, and 80s with a little folk, new wave, and country thrown in here and there just to keep things interesting. Since I'm not up on some of the newer stuff, I'd love some suggestions of songs or artist that are a little more recent to throw into the mix. Most of the people that will be at the party are into rock, pop, and country so those are the main genres I'm looking for but anything is appreciated.

Thanx

Hey hey!! So I found some great halloween mash ups on bootiemashup.com. Yes, I know the name sounds scandalous, it's not tho . They have a page of all of their Halloween mixes, it's all free. The mixes may not be up your musical alley, but if you listen to them you may find some songs that are and can pull them for your own Playlist. They have one that has an awesome Mashup of Mdme Leota from Disney haunted mansion, as well as other classic but not well known spooky songs, plus other songs from All types of genres and eras. Again, the overall mix may not be your jam, but I'd bet you find lots of individual song ideas!!
