Default Friday the 13th, horror themed party, need help with music

I'm holding my birthday part on Friday the 13th of July. By coincident.


Which is when I realized the opportunity for a theme horror/dress up party.


BUT!

I know jack all about horror themed music.


Currently the entire playlist is composed of a Halloween mix of "The Monster Mash" (which fits perfectly).

This leaves another.....4 hours of song to fill up....

So, I throw myself and your mercies and suggestions for music. Knowing this place to have heaps of fans for that kind of dark music.


But, a few notes first about the preferences:

Less macabre, more tongue in cheek: This means a yes to Lordi but a no to Cannibal Corpse. And Death Metal in general.

Monster rock is a-ok: As said before, yes to Lordi and such, esp. tongue in cheek style (so that rules out a lot of Power-metal that takes themselves too seriously). But! It has to have defined melody, do not send me the vanilla metal type, dynamic melodies is good.

Anything else which you think may fit the theme really. But keep the music somewhat party-like, and not.....too hard.

I don't know, I'll come back with more guidelines, but suggestions would be cool.


Thanks y'all!

"Halloween" by the Misfits(or the more upbeat version by Dropkick Murphys)

Even though you don't appear to be to fond of psychobilly, there are a few songs by the Cramps that are pretty good. I recommend "Zombie Dance" and "T.V Set".

Nah Psychobilly's had it's moments. I'm more referring to the original Psycho-Billy, Paralyzed by Legendary Stardust Cowboys.


And yes, I'll opt for the Dropkick Murphy one. I like them better than The Misfits.

here's a list of the obvious:

the Karate Kid movie soundtrack by Bill Conti... trust me its scary... REALLY scary... and downloadable... how i know this I would rather not divulge.

GWAR!

HeadlessPez! (trust me on this one - this is the kinda band that you show to your little bro when your mom aint home just to traumatize him)

Lordi!

KING DIAMOND (come on - you gotta throw da king in there... he tries so hard)

Niel Diamond's Christmas Album

actually any christmas album

'Dream Warriors' by Dokken - soundtrack to the nightmare-on-elm-street III i think.... extremely scary use of gratuitous multi-cheese chorus vocals and way way too much lead guitar for any sane person to handle.

Come to think of it... 'Mr. Scary' by the same band is pretty goddamn scary. Imagine an 80's dude with hair like Rob Stewart doing a 20 minute long guitar solo. Shudder.

anything by the 80's band 'leatherwolf' would probably work well for frightening guests. Trust me I know. No other band has ever successfully used the lyrics "I am a master of the dark and I am the lightning that lights up the sky" with much success. And yes, we here at the bunker keep tabs on such things.

I think at some stage, you need "Black Friday", by Grinspoon. Awesome song, entirely appropriate.

Er. Some Phantom Of The Opera, definitely (seen the sets? C'mon, gothic settings were invented there man!).

"Thriller (Michael Jackson)" has been playing at every Halloween/similarly themed party I've been to.

[hr]

I'll get back to you.
