Looking beyond "Monster Mash"

Halloween is rapidly approaching -- I thought a playlist might be in order. I tried to include songs that not only applied to the Halloween theme, but also qualified on their own musical merits. I also tried to find songs that weren't totally cliched. (Which is why you won't find "Monster Mash" on this list.) Feel free to add your own suggestions in the comments!

1. "Superstitious" by Stevie Wonder
2. "Rhiannon" by Fleetwood Mac
3. "Season of the Witch" by Michael Bloomfield
4. "Frankenstein" by Aimee Mann
5. "Werewolves of London" by Warren Zevon
6. "Black Cat Blues" by Buddy Guy
7. "My Beloved Monster" by the Eels
8. "Serpentine Fire" by Earth Wind & Fire
9. "Dead Man's Party" by Oingo Boingo
10. "Psycho Killer" by the Talking Heads
11. "Witch Hunt" by Rush
12. "Voodoo Child (Slight Return)" by Jimi Hendrix
