We all know that during the Christmas season, you never seem to run out of music to put you in the spirit. It’s on television, in your car, at work, in every. single. retail store. And all the places in between. But what about Halloween? The season where the spookiest visitors are mingling amongst us! What songs help get you in the spirit?
Whether you’re hanging out at the house waiting for the trick-or-treaters to knock on the door, planning your Halloween party, or just need something to bring out your inner darkness while you assemble your costume, we’ve compiled a catalog of our favorite jams to add to your playlist!
From the classic Michael Jackson’s Thriller, to a Halloween-themed Backstreet Boys parody, there is a wide range of options regardless of your musical taste. But we do have to warn you, there are some songs and music videos that you may find offensive, so please take caution!
