Songs about Monsters and Freaks

This is the Monster Halloween Song List broken down by subject.  This is a good way to focus your playlist on specific characters or themes if you are concentrating your Halloween party around a theme.

Note that some titles appear in more than one category depending on the lyrical content and/or keywords.

For the most part, I left movie scores off this list, but obviously there are many of them recognizable enough to be immediately associated with a character or theme on this list.
