Vampire Music and songs for Halloween parties are a “must” this year. With the popularity of the movie, Twilight, and the upcoming sequel, every vampire song ever recorded has crept out of the crypt and shown up on Halloween music playlists everywhere.
The thing about vampire music – more than any other Halloween theme – is vampire songs come in all types to get your blood racing. There are cute vampire songs for kids, vampire music you’d let your mom listen to, and then there are the deep, dark and twisty vampire songs.
Most of the fans of the bands that play dark and twisty vampire music (like Marilyn Manson, Alice Cooper) know right where to go to find them. This list features songs you could play at most Halloween parties for kids of all ages. My Halloween list of the best in vampire music includes some popular songs you’ll know – as well as some I searched for on a dark and gloomy night right before Halloween!
All of these songs can be found on iTunes!
Popular Vampire Songs for Halloween
Love Song for a Vampire – Annie Lennox
Moon Over Bourbon Street – Sting
This Annie Lennox vampire song crops up on everyone’s list as a Halloween Vampire favorite! If you enjoy this Annie Lennox fave, then you’ll also like this classic vampire song by Sting.
Nosferatu – Blue Oyster Cult
Bloodletting – Concrete Blonde
These two vampire songs were the most often mentioned after the Annie Lennox classic. They are much creepier but you could probably throw one or both of them into a playlist for all ages and get away with it.
Theme from Buffy the Vampire Slayer– Knightsbridge
Everyone will remember this music from a favorite vampire television show!
My Immortal – Evanescence
Everyone familiar with the music of this group will realize why this is a good one to include on your vampire music playlist.
Vampires – Pet Shop Boys
Another good one for Halloween.

Dracula – Nanette Workman – this French pop song would be fun to throw into your Halloween Party mix.
Instrumental/Soundtracks – these are always good for throwing in the Halloween playlist. Even if they are all instrumental – or don’t specially address vampires – it’s fun to add the creepy music or try to remember what movie or show the song is from.
