My favorite songs from the list are Monster Mash and Day-O. I love Monster Mash because in elementary school on Halloween we always did a parade in our costumes for our parents and I remember that being the first song they played every year.
I love Day-O because Beetlejuice is such a great movie and the dinner scene with that song is one of my favorites in the movie.

Pin the image to your Halloween board on Pinterest so you don't forget to play these songs all month long in October!
