Playlist: Halloween

Take a trip beyond the normal and down the dark staircase to the downright insane, as we have searched all the graveyards and abandoned roller-discos for the spookiest Halloween songs of all time.

We’ve looked a little beyond the obvious, a little toward the odd and added in a few gut-punches along the way. This is the playlist to scare your friends shitless, or alternatively, to play during a very unsuspecting baby-shower.

Whichever your preference for pressing play, make sure your bony finger reaches down and taps that key. This playlist is scary good.
