Well, that was a little harder than expected. It turns out that I have many songs with spooky themes. Unfortunately most of them are deeply mediocre. What’s below is the best of the rest, minus a couple of tracks already selected by ad hoc and Not Me, Boss.

It starts with your actual Haitian voodoo drummers from the (imaginatively named) Soul Jazz CD “Voodoo Drums” and closes with Shadow Boxing (because it sounds creepy). It’s fairly obvious why most of the others are included but I stretched the theme to include songs about the witching hour.
Hope you enjoy.
