It’s officially spooky season! If you’re hosting a Halloween party or going to a pumpkin patch a playlist to fit the mood is absolutely necessary. If you’re tired of hearing Spooky, Scary Skeletons and want new music for your autumn plans, this playlist is for you.
Somebody’s Watching Me – Rockwell
The lyrics paired with the melody make for a perfect Halloween party soundtrack. Also, the Michael Jackson feature is perfect for the Halloween season. The King of Pop had some spooky hits (we already know that EVERYONE will be playing Thriller at least once).
Pain – PinkPantheress
Any PinkPantheress song fits the chilly autumn months. Pain, in particular, has a haunting production that makes it feel like a Halloween song. The ghostly chords and distorted vocals just feel right.
Knee Socks – Arctic Monkeys
I might lose some of you on this one but TRUST ME! Just give it a listen, and you’ll understand. The chorus melody sounds like a Halloween tune. Plus, the hard-hitting percussion gives it a great energy!
Devil Town – Cavetown
If you’re a fan of artists like Phoebe Bridgers, Mitski, and Girl in Red I have a feeling you’ll especially enjoy this song. It feels angsty and sounds like a song from a coming-of-age movie. The verses are just creepy enough for your Halloween soundtrack!
Season of the Witch – Lana Del Rey
Is this technically a Halloween song? Is it too on the nose? Who cares, It was too good to pass up! The high background synth and the distorted radio vocals are addicting. Not to mention the lyrics!
Hey Kids – Molina
This song is SO creepy (in a good way). No Halloween playlist is complete without experimental production, and this one definitely fits the bill. The song itself is already surreal, and the MV is a rollercoaster.
