What’s your favorite Halloween song? Let me know in the comment section below.

Remember, music sets the mood for your guests and helps establish your party’s atmosphere (i.e. dance music vs. spooky, low-volume music guests can talk over). If your party has a specific theme, then let that guide your music choices, otherwise, go for classic Halloween tunes. With a little bit of thought and research, you’re sure to end up with the perfect soundtrack to your extraordinary Halloween experience!
