Halloween Music Top 100

Halloween music, like any good spirit from the netherworld, can appear in many shapes and styles. It might turn up in lyrics designed to terrorize and traumatize, or make itself known through creepy instrumental means such as theremins, church organs and spooky sound effects. Most of all, it may celebrate or demonize the things that go bump in the night, breaking you out of your so-called safe, even-keeled life. Here's the Top 100 in Halloween Music, as rated by listeners on AOL Radio's Halloween station.
