50+ Canadian Songs for Halloween

I hate Halloween.  Why?  Because it’s when parents dress their children in disguise and parade them from house to house with threats of violence and mayhem, laying waste to the neighbourhood with their elder-sanctioned extortion.

Yeah, I’m a grump.

I’ve also hated Halloween for the bad music.  There’s no good reason to hear “The Monster Mash” ever again.  Same for “Dead Man’s Party.”

Still, this is a music website and people come here looking for recommendations and advice, even if it’s about something that I despise.  This includes the question “Can you recommend any good songs for Halloween?”

Fortunately, this being the Internet, I can just pass the buck and link to someone who has done all the heavy lifting.  In this case, it’s New Canadian Music, which helpfully provides a list of Canadian songs that will work well when the little sugar junkies come to your door demanding their sugar fix.  Bookmark and save.
