Halloween is a lot of fun when you’re a kid but it can also be fun as an adult. All you need is a few friends, a couple of costumes, drinks, and a lot of good music. Halloween-themed music to be more precise. Most music genres have songs that are appropriate for Halloween so all you need to do is decide which genre you like best and start searching for songs. Better yet, if you enjoy dancing you don’t even need to search any more because we’ve already made a list of songs for you. With that in mind here are our top 15 best Halloween dance songs to play at a party.

Part 1: Top 15 Best Halloween Dance Songs

Rihanna – Disturbia

Rihanna’s music is usually pretty upbeat but with Disturbia, she left all that aside and created one of the most popular Halloween dance songs out there.

Lady Gaga – Monster

Lady Gaga’s eccentric style is a perfect fit for Halloween parties. The artist took a more mature approach with her latest album but luckily Monster is from 2009 so this is very much the old Lady Gaga we all know and love.

Ke$ha – Cannibal

You can’t go wrong with Ke$ha’s Cannibal if you’re looking for good Halloween songs to dance to. The lyrics are a bit morbid that’s what Halloween is all about anyway.

Michael Jackson – Thriller

A classic Halloween dance song that’s mandatory at any worthwhile party so make sure you have it on your playlist.

Katy Perry – E.T.

Halloween was originally about monsters but there are plenty of aliens in pop culture that could be mistaken for monsters so we think this song fits the theme.

Avril Lavigne – Alice

The perfect Halloween dance song if you enjoy the story of Alice in Wonderland, and let’s be honest, who doesn’t?

The Killers – White Demon Love Song

This one is more suitable for slow dancing with your significant other but you can definitely hit the dance floor and jam to it all alone, too.

Aqua – Halloween

Aqua’s music has always be targeted more at kids than adults so expect this Halloween dance song to be a bit silly. On the other hand, a party where everyone dresses up in weird costumes is also pretty silly and could use a song like this.

Skrillex – Kill Everybody

If you’re planning a more modern Halloween party it’s not a bad idea to think about bringing some dubstep. Skrillex’s music can make even the dead rise up and dance so you can be certain that no one will be sitting down while this song is playing.

Depeche Mode – Black Celebration

This song is literally about having a great “Black Celebration tonight”. I guess that could mean several things but to our ears, it sounds like having a great Halloween party with spooky music.

Rob Zombie – Dragula (Hot Rod Herman Remix)

A list about good Halloween songs to dance to without an entry from Rob Zombie just wouldn’t be right, so here it is. The original Dragula is a good pick too, but if heavy dancing is what you’re after you’ll want to get the Hot Rod Herman Remix instead.

Blue Oyster Cult – Don’t Fear the Reaper

There’s nothing wrong with going back to the classics and this iconic 1976 hit from Blue Oyster Cult is the very definition of a classic Halloween song.

Santana – Black Magic Woman

A song about a woman that deals in black magic is undoubtedly a good fit for a Halloween-themed party. You could also go with the original song by Fleetwood Mac but Santana’s version is more suitable for dancing.

Yeah Yeah Yeahs – Heads Will Roll (A-Trak Remix)

An excellent Halloween song that’s pretty much impossible not to dance to. Unless you’re a zombie that is, but even then you might get up and showcase a few of your moves.

Ray Parker Jr. – Ghostbuster

Very few Halloween dance songs have been played as much as the original theme for Ghostbusters. Make sure to keep that tradition alive.
