Halloween Music?

I guess I can only listen to the theme from the Exorcist or Psycho so many times before I start to wonder if it’s time to expand my Halloween music play list. I mean, it’s gotten a little stale and not in the stale ” something has been locked up in that trunk in the basement and it’s starting to smell ” fun stale.

I think these three songs would make a great addition to that list, what do you think?
