No one ever said classical music is all rainbows and sunshine. In fact, there is plenty of dark and brooding classical music out there if you know where to look. Lucky for you, I've done a bit of searching for you and put together a small, but exciting, list of haunting classical music. Beware!  You mustn't listen to this music alone in the dark (unless you're strange and unusual).  

For you social butterflies, if you want to throw a truly frightening and memorable Halloween party, use the scary classical music below in combination with your Halloween decor and typical spooky sound effects.
