Halloween music to thrill and delight you

You can dance away to Monster Mash, but I prefer to be totally creeped out for Halloween. Here's my personal Scariest Song List of All Time. Did I miss any? What song makes your skin crawl (in a good way)?

Red Right Hand: Nick Cave

John Wayne Gacy Jr: Sufjan Stevens

This song gives me nightmares.

Devil Got My Woman: Skip James

Cactus: David Bowie

'97 Bonnie & Clyde: Tori Amos

We Suck Young Blood: Radiohead

I Put a Spell on You: Screamin' Jay Hawkins

(Thanks to Tom Hawking over at Flavorwire, who put together a brilliant list of creepy pop songs)
