One year ago, I went to the local cemetery during a full moon, dug a grave, and buried a jukebox in it. I would explain why I did this, but why creep you out with the gruesome details of my nocturnal October activities? So anyway, I returned to the cemetery last night, dug up that same jukebox, plugged it in, and discovered something truly horrifying...
It had become the Jack-O-Juke!
The Jack-O-Juke is a jukebox filled with over 180 horrifying Halloween songs to keep your decaying ears bleeding with ghoulish glee all season long. Feel free to keep the Jack-O-Juke open in a separate window so you can listen to all of the hand-picked tunes while still checking out all the latest article offerings here on I-Mockery.
I've received so many emails over the years from people asking me to set up a Halloween music jukebox on the site, I figured it was high time I oblige you guys before you decided to break into my home and eat my skull. With the help of some kind chums who donated their time, I gathered all kinds of killer Halloween songs, from the classics we all know and love to the completely obscure, and added them to this jukebox. I hope this new feature makes your Halloween season even more enjoyable than it already is... and I also hope it doesn't kill my server with all the bandwidth it's surely going to devour.
If you would like to help me out with the bandwidth costs, please consider purchasing our official 8-Bit Halloween print or anything else from our store. Every purchase helps cover my hefty hosting bills!
Have a song to suggest? If there's a Halloween tune that you feel is worthy of a permanent spot in the Jack-O-Juke, please post it here in this blog thread. This thread will be the permanent home for all spooky song suggestions, so feel free to return with all the ideas you can come up with. I can't promise I'll add anything you suggest, but I'll certainly keep an open mind about any haunted Halloween anthems you can come up with.
Alright, that's enough blabber. Start listening to the Halloween songs, please spread the word, and lemme know what you think!
Danny 4 Eyes on 10/10/2012 12:27 pm
Listening the the Beetlejuice theme as we speak, great work Rog.
WhiteRoseBrian on 10/10/2012 12:43 pm
Maybe the box listing the songs should be expanded so that it would be easier to navigate through tracks.
As far as suggestions, how about the remix of Tower of Dolls from Castlevania Chronicles?
Here's another track from Castlevania you might consider.
Here's the music from Arkham Asylum when you encounter the Scarecrow.
How about this track from Super Mario 64?
That's all I can think of for the moment. I may post again here later when I have more ideas.
Shannon (Guest) on 10/10/2012 1:56 pm
*AHEM* you are welcome ;)
GoodnightMoon (Guest) on 10/10/2012 2:23 pm
Any chance of getting Dwelling of Doom from Castlevania on there as well? I always associate that song with the Halloween Collection page from a few years back.
Kenji on 10/10/2012 2:31 pm
This is too awesome for words, great job Roger.
ColdFusion (Guest) on 10/10/2012 2:50 pm
I was a little embarrassed to suggest it, but I see WhiteRoseBrian is on the same page.. It doesn't get spookier than http://ocremix.org/remix/OCR01171/
the violins are even a little out of tune, giving it a 'black and white film' sound..
cqmorrell on 10/10/2012 3:19 pm
How about the theme from John Carpenter's The Thing?
Or possibly something from The Fly's soundtrack?
Kenji on 10/10/2012 3:23 pm
By the way:
The opening theme from Burton's "Corpse Bride" > http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9jeQM63J3Ew
And also this, provided there's a full version somewhere > http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vNmN8LdTl2s
margo on 10/10/2012 3:28 pm
I would like to suggest Werewolves of London By Warren Zevon
Ducttapefury on 10/10/2012 3:35 pm
There's a lot of variety on there. I was going to suggest Crypt by Power Glove, but it's already there! Its like the jack-o-juke can read minds. If so, I'm thinking the original Dawn of the Dead theme would be a good addition. Also some songs by Deadbolt.
blood_panther on 10/10/2012 4:56 pm
A very nice selection! almost every halloween song I could think of is already on the list! that said I did manage to think of two more you might want to add.
jonathan coulton's Creepy Doll
jonathan coulton's RE:Your Brains
choconado (Guest) on 10/10/2012 5:01 pm
I agree that the track box is way too small. Only being able to see three and a half tracks (out of almost sixty times that! ) is a bit inconvenient.
-RoG- on 10/10/2012 5:05 pm
Alrighty, I just updated it with a significantly larger viewable tracklist area, so you should now able to see six tracks at a time. That's about as much as I'm gonna enlarge it at the moment. You may need to clear your cache for it to appear properly.
Keep the song suggestions coming everybody... great stuff so far! Hope you're all enjoying the Jack-O-Juke cuz it was a LOT of work putting it together. Hope each of you have discovered at least a few new tunes you'll always want to listen to come Halloween season every year!
Chuck White (Guest) on 10/10/2012 6:06 pm
the song Halloween by King Diamond

Mister Tea on 10/11/2012 11:35 pm
Hey now, if you're gonna do Oingo Boingo, then you can't forget about "Dead Man's Party," aka that song from the kickass dorm party in Back to School.
ReBirFh on 10/12/2012 8:32 am
Add the main theme from Phenomena by Goblin.

So many great suggestions... looks like I'm gonna have to buy some more Halloween music in the near future. I wanna get the Jack-O-Juke to over 200 songs, so I'll do my best to check all of them out and add the ones that I like most to the playlist. Thanks all, and keep those suggestions coming!
(By the way - be sure to check the full playlist before you make a suggestion, because your song idea may already be on it.)

Those two tunes just ARE horror, to me.
Liz Peters (Guest) on 10/13/2012 11:40 pm
Bessie Smith - Devil's Gonna Get You
saturnknight on 10/14/2012 8:14 am
anything off the Halloween Hootenanny cd will work
Rob Zombies : Halloween, she got so mean
ChrisV82 (Guest) on 10/14/2012 1:54 pm
This is a great idea and there are some good tracks. However, songs like "Ghost Town" by the Specials have absolutely nothing to do with Halloween ("This place is coming like a ghost town. No job to be found in this country."). It's the problem so many people have when doing a compilation like this; you can't take everything literally.
So, the next time someone says "Let's put Witch Hunt by Rush on our mix," tell them, NO!
JKent Nichols (Guest) on 10/15/2012 1:45 am
Didn't get to read all previous requests above, but I was thinkin about
The Raven-Glass Prism
ryot on 10/15/2012 12:23 pm

Time Warp from The Rocky Horror Picture Show
shimwood (Guest) on 10/18/2012 9:39 pm
I didn't see it listed, possibly because it's new, but I can't stop recommending this artist enough:
mc chris - Tasty Face
Yes, it's a parody, but it's my official Halloween song of 2012!
-RoG- on 10/19/2012 2:03 pm
I've added some more songs to the Jack-O-Juke based on some of your suggestions. Still have a lot more of your suggestions to get to, but making progress. Keep posting those great ideas for spooky tunes to add to the playlist!
chuck (Guest) on 10/20/2012 6:59 am
ZOMBIE WOOF BY FRANK ZAPPA!!!!!
KidAOk85 (Guest) on 10/21/2012 2:38 pm
One of my fav Halloween songs has always been the Child's Play 2 theme. Gotta love creepy circus-y music this time of year
WhiteRoseBrian on 10/21/2012 10:34 pm
Here is one I thought of after I last posted in this thread.
What about another track from Nightmare Before Christmas?
WhiteRoseBrian on 10/21/2012 10:50 pm
Please pardon the double-posting, but I just thought of this too. There's a tone poem from Rachmaninov called Isle of the Dead. It is over twenty minutes long. That would be far too long your jukebox, wouldn't it?
James Eraserhead (Guest) on 10/23/2012 2:26 pm

Chris (Guest) on 09/29/2013 6:31 pm
I'm surprised the Main Theme from A Nightmare on Elm Street isn't already on your playlist.
Terri (Guest) on 10/23/2013 6:53 pm
How about the theme from the Saw movies?
Vincent (Guest) on 10/24/2013 3:12 pm
You should add this classic from Bob Marley and the Wailers. It is known as "Mr. Brown". The original version that came out in 1970 was rumored to be about a ghost. Even before you hear the words, the instrumental has noises that pretty much sounds like spooky howling. That's why on some later compilations the song has also been titled "Dracula" as well!
Just listen to the original, it is better than the 2008 Angry Kids remix.
kasper31383 on 10/27/2013 8:49 am
Maybe already mentioned but i always liked night on bald mountain & toccata and fugue.
kasper31383 on 10/28/2013 6:07 am
