Just spitballin here. These are the most Halloween sounding songs or Halloween themed in my collection that come to mind. I'll let others dig up the popular ones. Also leaving out all the cookie monster/pig squeal songs.

Greg brings up Shub-Niggurath...basically that whole album takes the Halloween win. 

Black Sabbath - Black Sabbath
Mr. Bungle - Ma Meeshka Mow Skwoz
Pulsar - Halloween
Keith Emerson - Rose's Descent Into the Cellar
Magma - Zombies (amongst many others)
Nordic Quartet - Ved Sovertn
Type O Negative - Halloween in Heaven
Tori Amos - Raining Blood 
Tangerine Dream - Anything From Zeit
Gentle Giant - Black Cat

I might have gone with Klaus Nomi's version.

I recall Andrew Gold recorded a whole album of Halloween songs, titled "Halloween Howls". Dead
 
This spooky number by Julie Driscoll, Brian Auger & the Trinity has to be a hot favourite for Halloween.

Another Cooper classic. Compared to the other PG -13 entries this may scare you too much.

^You're right. Criminal to have forgotten him. And that's actually my favorite tune.

The delivery is just amazingly timed.

I tried to edit my post to mention all of those, but the site wouldn't let me (error after error after error). Lots of ark instrumental music of the chamber prog rock/ RIO variety. Some Art Zoyd I consider to be quite light. Univers Zero's Heresie is a particular favourite Halloween classic of mine. And I wanted to mention Igor Wakhevitch, particularly for Docteur Faust and particularly the track "Materia Prima" (which I had planned to list). Art Zoyd's horror soundtracks are good. Also Faust. And another I wanted to list but was trying to be more song-based (rather than instrumental) is the fabulous Fabio Frizzi especially for The Beyond and City of the Living Dead soundtracks.

Methinks my Halloween list would be rather more dark than the more fun OP's one (guess he came in to market his youtube thing). Another track I'd like to mention is Van der Graaf Generator's "Darkness" even if it ain't that dark. And for really devastatingly creepy (more devastating than creepy), nothing for me beats Penderecki's Threnody for Hiroshima. Not a fun one for Halloween. Just play "Boris the Spider" right after it.

I know Hallowe'en was last night, but, if anybody's interested, tonight from 10:00 to Midnight, Central Meridian Time (CMT), WDRT-Viroqua radio will be re-broadcasting my "Devil's Night" show from 2016. It's my favorite show I ever did--the one I'm most proud of--in which I tried to capture the essence of the Hallowe'en spirit in the area that I grew up in (the Detroit area)--which was not a totally light-hearted, happy-go-lucky one. The Devil's Night traditions in Detroit developed into quite a tense, even dangerous phenomenon in the 1970s and 1980s. (See this Wikipedia article:  https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Devil%27s_Night) 

You can stream the show live or listen to it anytime during the week by selecting "Prog Is Alive" from the choices in the "Archives>>Music archives" menus on the WDRT website at www.wdrt.org and then proceeding from there. Good luck! and enjoy!

P.S. I thought a rebroadcast of this specific show particularly relevant to the current political climate in the U.S.
