Halloween Songs

I've been trying to think of songs for Halloween that aren't along the lines of your typical "Monster Mash." Don't get me wrong, there's certainly a time and a place for "the Mash" but I'm interested in music that's a little less...commercial. I want something that wouldn't appear in a Google search for "Top 10 Halloween Party Song List." Something that communicates everything that Halloween is without even topically mentioning Halloween. Something that captures the spirit of an Edgar Allen Poe story. The essence of autumn leaves. The smell of frost thawing in an already-harvested corn field or that feeling you get walking past a cemetery at night.

Any suggestions?
