I'll start:
Thriller-MJ
The Way it is: Prodigy
Monster Mash
Frankenstein-Edgar Winter
Purple People Eater
Earth People-Dr.Octagon
Aliens-Dr. Octagon
Turbulence-Deltron
Yoshimi Battles the Pink Robots-Flaming Lips
Mushroom Festival in Hell-Ween
Mourning Glory-ween
Spinal Menengitis-Ween
Batdance-Prince
Dracula-MMW
More Human than Human-White Zombie
Tales from the Crypt Theme-Danny Elfman

etc

'A is to B as B is to C' and 'The Color of Fire' by Boards of Canada. Put it at the end of the set because it's likely to traumatize the childrens.

There is so much good, dark music, but this one is an essential element:

'This Is Halloween'
~from The Nightmare Before Christmas soundtrack, also by Danny Elfman. Guaranteed to put smiles on peoples faces. "Everyone hail to the pumpkin king!"

A lot of their stuff is relaxing. But if you're feel calm during these tracks, you've got issues. :P
