Halloween Playlist: 12 Spooky Songs To Frighten Your Night

John Hamilton | October 25, 2012 5:30 am

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.
