Dead Man's Party

Advance Halloween preparation! We're having a Dark Carnival- themed party-- think scary clowns, murderous roustabouts, and evil fortunetellers. We're looking for appropriate background music.

We don't want standard spooky classical stuff, nor regular pop/rock. No Night on Bald Mountain, no Thriller. What we want are songs that sound upbeat, carnival-ish and creepy at the same time.
On our list so far:
Carnival of Souls- Combustible Edison
To the Shock of Miss Louise- Lost Boys soundtrack
Beatrix- Cocteau Twins
Pretty much anything by Nox Arcana
Cemetary Polka- Tom Waits
Coney Island Baby- Tom Waits
What else? Calliope music is especially welcome.
