93 Songs for the Ultimate Halloween Playlist 2016

The Lovely Cicada | 93 Songs for the Ultimate Halloween Playlist 2016

Growing up, I never went through Halloween without listening to "Monster Mash", "Halloween", "The Time Warp", and the entirety of the Nightmare Before Christmas soundtrack on repeat. It was a ritual for me to honor Halloween with music, movies, decor, conjuring spirits, going to haunted houses, getting into mischief with friends, and dressing up. 

I already have you "scary monsters and super creeps" covered on movies you should be watching this month. But aside from movies, music is a key ingredient to the Halloween holiday (and everything else in life, honestly). I compiled a killer and spooky playlist to get you in the spirit. Gather your fiends, friends, and witches for a night of fright complete with this ghoulish mix.
