The Best Nostalgic Halloween Songs

We're really getting into the Halloween spirit here at TheFW. It's nothing new -- it's always been one of our favorite holidays (right after Arbor Day). So, while we enjoying settling down with a good (bad) scary movie, sometimes we wax a little nostalgic. These are the songs from our childhood that really get us in the mood for trick or treating, which we're apparently too "old" to do anymore, unless our plan to dress up like a scary six-year-old finally works. Check them out, and let us know if we missed one of your favorites.

The only way it could be more of a cult is if some kind of live goat sacrifice was involved.
