Halloween Playlist: 12 Spooky Songs To Frighten Your Night

We're Simply Shrieking!
In case you couldn’t tell from our previous countdown of supernatural pop moments, we here at Idolator are really into all things spooky! So when the season of trick-or-treaters, pumpkin-scented everything and Halloween party playlists rolls around, we’re in our element. As a matter of fact, we wish some pioneering pop artist would write a song designed specifically to scare the bejeezus out of us on the dancefloor. (As opposed to the music that scares us OFF the dancefloor, which is a totally different story.)

Until such a thing exists, rounding up a playlist for our big October 31st bash will be a little more difficult — but no less fun! In the spirit of getting your costume-candy-and-creepiness on, cast an eyeball at this run-down of tracks (and our aforementioned Supernatural Top Ten) that have been keeping us in the Halloween spirit — and let us know which songs you would add to the ultimate All Hallow’s Eve mix!

Dead or Alive, “Something in My House”: The ’80s act behind “You Spin Me Round (Like a Record)” turned out a haunting hi-NRG ode to the ghosts of sluts past with this little number, but frontman Pete Burns‘ dance moves are perhaps more frightening than he intended.
