Spooky Songs

If you’ve known me or read my blog for any length of time, you’d know that I love playlists. LOVE them, can’t get enough. Sometimes, when I’m by myself, I’ll just create a playlist. I think of them in the shower, while listening to music. I find it challenging and fun.

I have tons of them. Currently, I have 38 of them in my iPhone. I have probably 15-20 more in my iTunes that I don’t use regularly. I’m obsessed.

Is it any wonder, then, that I have a Halloween playlist?

I do. But it is very recent. I didn’t consider, until this year, that I should HAVE a Halloween Playlist, so I made one a few days ago.

Following is the list of songs that make up my Halloween playlist. However, this is only comprised of songs I already had in my music list, I did not buy any songs, no matter how tempting, for the playlist. Also, I am not linking to anything, so if you don’t know a song and you’re curious, YouTube, baby.

A note about the last song. Yes, it’s classical music, but it’s probably the most recognizable “spooky” music in the world. Honestly, I linked to a YouTube vid for that song only. Go listen to it, I dare you. I promise, you will have heard it before and you’ll go, “oh yeah, perfect Halloween song”.

There you go, my list and my suggestions of great Halloween music. In case you need some for your next Halloween party…be sure to invite me!

Happy Halloween (again).
