Residual Halloween business - help with a playlist

Since Halloween started the weekend it seem like the whole weekend could continue the spooky theme. Thus I thought I could still ask the web for advice for a Halloween music mix for today's party.

To make the mix I need to use what is available on my iTunes. Here is the list:

Thriller - Michael Jackson
Grim, Grinning Ghosts - Theme from Disneyworld's Haunted House
The Devil Went Down to Georgia - The Charlie Daniels Band
Toccata & Fugue in D minor, BWV 565 - J.S.Bach
Men in Black - Will Smith
Hell - Squirrel Nut Zippers
Pets - Porno for Pyros
O Fortuna - Orff: Carmina Burana

Firstly, I was constrained by what I have available, so don't bother suggesting "Monster Mash" or other perennial Halloween favorites, because I don't have them and don't want to buy them.

Secondly, I was embarrassed that I don't have Thriller on CD, my copy is a tape! Grabbed that album from iTunes plus the video. "Grim, Grinning Ghosts" was acquired on a Disneyworld themes CD after our trip in February, it was a must have.

Finally, are "The Devil Went Down to Georgia", "Men in Black", "Hell", "Pets", and "O Fortuna" Halloween songs? I thing "Hell" fits the bill because it is about hell. I want to include "The Devil Went Down to Georgia", because the devil is in it and that is Halloweeny, right? "Men in Black" and "Pets" have aliens in the story, so does that make them Halloween mix list worthy?

What do you think? Please offer some advice in the comments. You just might save a party faux pas.
