Haunted Halloween Hits, Part Three Or, the best Halloween songs you've never heard

This is part three of a three part series all about Halloween music. Part onePart two

Since we’ve now established what is and isn’t a Halloween song, and covered a few of the common mistakes people make when assigning that distinction, I’d like to devote this third part to paying forward the fruits of my decade-long search for the best Halloween music. The search will hopefully never end, but as of 2018, these are the best finds I’ve uncovered that the average person may not be aware of.

Hopefully, if you are reading this, it inspires you to use some of this music in your own celebration of Halloween, whether at a party, during your commute, or simply to set the tone for a quiet evening at home. I also invite you to consider joining the search with me. I frequently call on my fellow Halloween fanatics to share their finds with me, and this has been the source of many of these recommendations.
