100 Greatest Halloween Party Songs

Criteria: This is a list of Halloween PARTY songs. As a mobile jock, these are the top 100 tunes I won't be without when it's time to get people on the dance floor or in the feel of the season. Obviously, initial and lasting popularity and impact are important and must be factored but also heavy consideration is given to the song's danceability AND Halloween "spirit".

I like this consideration as well: DOES THE SONG "DO BUSINE$$"? Let's suppose were producing a box set of the greatest Halloween Party songs of all time to sell on late night TV (for instance). We want the folks at home to race to the telephone! Right? Trick or Treat!!!
