Halloween Playlists

What are your plans this weekend? Are you ready to get into costume and host a Halloween rager? Or are you planning on lying low and saving your energy for next week’s festivities? Either way, we’ve got your music needs covered.

The moody playlist is great for those of you that like to soak in the dreary atmosphere of late October, contemplating your mortality. You know who you are. Some dark favorites (Nick Cave, PJ Harvey, Joy Division, The Cure, Siouxsie and the Banshees) are interspersed with haunting tracks from some of my favorite horror movies- Halloween, Rosemary’s Baby, The Exorcist, etc. This one also works for creeping out unsuspecting trick-or-treaters.

The spooky dance party playlist is perfect for any planned or impromptu rug-cutting you might be doing in the next week or so. You can have a spooky dance party anytime! Even by yourself in the car or quietly at work when no one is looking. Movie soundtracks again contribute some standout tracks (like “Jump in the Line” for my Beetlejuice fans), intermixed with uptempo tracks from a scary variety of artists: Suicide, The Knife, Nine Inch Nails, and Gasp!, Britney Spears. There’s something for all the ghouls and boys on this one. Be careful not to dance yourselves to death. Seriously, don't.
