Halloween movies and music

We love Halloween time here at our house.  Personally, I just love that the weather is cooler and I can bake with pumpkin til my heart's content.

We love watching our favorite holiday movies and shows:
Garfield's Halloween
It's the Great Pumpkin Charlie Brown
Disney's Halloween Special
The Worst Witch

We listen to great music:
"Toccata and Fugue" by Bach (the great classic organ song)
"In the Hall of the Mountain King" by Grieg
"The Sorcerer's Apprentice" by Dukas
"Night on Bald Mountain" by Rimsky-Korsakov
"This is Halloween" from Nightmare Before Christmas by Danny Elfman
Monster Mash

I found this fun list:
Dracula’s top ten favorite songs
10. You’re so vein
9. Fangs for the Memories
8. You’ve got a Fiend
7. You Don’t Bring me Plasma Anymore
6. Bat’s the Way (uh-huh, uh-huh) I like it
5. You Light up my Crypt
4. Tie a Yellow Ribbon ‘Round the Old Oak Casket
3. Don’t Go Stakin’ My Heart
2. Stranglers in the Night
1. He Ain’t Heavy, He’s My Donor

Where did you find the Disney and Garfield Halloween specials? Call or email me and let me know when you get a chance. We also like "The Boy Who Left Home to Find Out About the Shivers" "Nightmare Before Christmas" (though it works as a Christmas one too), Disney's Ichabod and the headless horseman, and a few others. Good times!

About 12 years ago I taped the Disney Halloween off the TV. The Garfield we bought. The DVD has the Garfield Halloween, Thanksgiving and Christmas specials on it.

I love the the other ones you mentioned. How about the freaky hairless boy movie? What was that called again? He got scared in the house, made a peanut butter mixture, and then grew too much hair? Weird.
