Want to make a CD of music for a halloween party (adults and kids)and need some songs. Have monster mash, time warp and a couple of others but need more. All input is greatly appreciated!
Chopin's funeral march, Berlioz Symphonie Fantastique ( remember the skeletons rising from the graves in Fantasia?)...the "Jaws" music..
First thing I thought of was Oingo Boingo song "Dead Man's Party" and I came across a listing of music for the occasion ... http://www.scaryguys.com/sound.htm . "Bella Lugosis Dead" by Bauhaus might be another good one. None of these are too dark and Gothic really.
See the link below for some more out there stuff.

Great woods, you frighten me like cathedrals;
You howl like an organ; and our hearts of misery,
Rooms of eternal mourning where quiver ancient rattles,
Answer the echoes of your from the depths I've come to Thee.
- Charles Baudelaire, Obsession
