Halloween & Día de Muertos Resources

Sheet Music and Audio

You can find plenty of titles in the Music Division’s coffers that tell of the lighted squash with which we celebrate All Hallows Eve. Printed music at the Library includes horror movie scores such as “Dracula’s Daughter Theme” (1936) and an assortment of Halloween-themed sheet music, including “When That Vampire Rolled Her Vampy Eyes at Me” (1917). The Music Division, the American Folklife Center, and the Motion Picture, Broadcasting and Recorded Sound Divisions also preserve a great variety of sound recordings of Halloween-related songs and music, including traditional folksongs, classical music, and popular tunes appropriate to Halloween.
