    Hi Aromatics - welcome to DF! Love your avatar - young Feynman?

    Monster Mash - I think it is a swing or jive
    So You Think You Can Dance had a zombie number - I will look for the song
    Rihanna Disturbia - great tango
    Also Rocky Horror Picture Show theme - great line dance

    Thanks to both of you for the suggestions.

    I was not sure if Monster Mash would work for a swing, thanks for clarifying, I will add it to my list.
    I was also thinking Witchcraft- Frank Sinatra for a foxtrot.

    What do you think about a cha cha routine for Disturbia?

    Yes, my avatar is a young Feynman, he is my all time hero.

    Bet you can think of a number of songs whos titles are appropriately "halloweenish".
    These two just pop in to my mind just as I logged off
    Bewitched bothered and bewildered
    some enchanted evening
    Harry potter theme waltz?
    What about other movies and some of the disney waltzes

    Love Feynman's books and the lectures -

    I think Disturbia could be a cha cha but, it works great as tango
    Witchcraft is a great fox-trot - Steve Tyrell version or Frank Sinatra
    More Frank Sinatra - Strangers in the Night, Bewitched, Moonlight Serenade
    Ramalama Bang Bang is the zombie dance from SYTYCD - Roisin Murphy - great "mood" music when folks are mingling before dance starts - Or you could get two pro couples to do similar zombie choreography for a showcase

    Awesome, thank you!

    I somehow missed the old thread in my brief search.

    I am working on finding all of these songs, and listening to tons of Halloween music, but still have difficulty saying with any certainty, which songs are good for which dance.

    If you search Addams Family Masochism Tango (by Tom Lehrer), you will find the more produced version of the song, which I find easier to dance to.

    Although, Rumba doesn't lend itself to a Halloween vibe, I guess you could do:
    Chains by Tina Arena
    Losing my Religion by Jacqui Naylor

    This is a good one because the intro sounds LIKE Halloween:
    Perhaps by Sunray Fet. Kym Mazelle

    This thread has a lot of great suggestions! ;)
  12. Alrighty, I've got two that have been rattling around for a while in my head to use for something. they're not Halloween songs, but I think both are dark enough.

    The Used - Smother Me
    The Used - The Back Of Your Mouth

    If you look up either, look up the second.

    Halloween Dance Music-Help Please!

    Hey guys, I'm back. So I figure I could spend hours scouring the web for songs or I could come directly to dance experts and I'm hoping for some quick replies obviously seeing as Halloween is today and I might be having some friends over for a dance party!

    I'm mainly looking for Halloween themed music suitable for West Coast Swing, East Coast Swing, Waltz, Tango, and Salsa.

    All I know off the top of my head is Thriller (WCS), Monster Mash (ECS), Hedwig's Theme (Waltz), and Phantom of the Opera (Tango). Any others?

    Thanks in advance! :)

    Ok, I think I've got enough WC and EC and I doubt there's any for Salsa...but I need a few more Waltzes, and preferably slow waltz. I love Harry Potter, but we don't know Viennesse and not sure we can dance a fast enough regular waltz to keep up with Hedwig's Theme, lol. It's VERY fast...
