The Official Spooky Season Playlist

Spooky season is finally upon us as we count down the days 'til All Hallows’ Day — and the best way to celebrate anything is music! You can jam out to these songs all day, whether you’re studying, at the gym or getting ready to head out to a Halloween party with your friends! The choices range from classics, like Michael Jackson’s “Thriller,” to relatively new bops by well-known and obscure artists.

1. Thriller by Michael Jackson – a must-have for every and all Halloween themed playlists.

2. Witchcraft by Frank Sinatra – P.S.: the cover by Bohnes is a good listen as well!

3. Season of the Witch by Donovan – for that 60’s witchy vibe.

4. Heads Will Roll (A-Trak Remix) by The Yeah Yeah Yeah’s – another staple on all spooky playlists.

5. I Put a Spell on You by Nina Simone

6. E.T. by Katy Perry

7. Follow Me Down by Neon Hitch featuring 30h3! – for a fun, quirky twist.

8. Where is My Mind by Eurythmics - this song has many, many covers that are just as good and spooky season appropriate as the original, but they would need a whole separate playlist just to get through them all. Two covers that are season appropriate and deserve shout-outs are:
