The Ultimate Spooky Season Playlist

October 20, 2020

I'm a huge fan of music. There have been so many times where I feel like music literally saved my life. I use it to express myself/listen to whatever I may be feeling at the moment, get me super pumped for a workout (or chores, ugh!), or turn up the volume as high as it will go, and jam out on my commute to work. One of my favorite things has always been creating mixtapes/CDs. That's kind of a thing of the past now (though if you're like me, you still buy, collect, and regularly play CDs), so the next best thing has become playlists. I love using Spotify to curate different playlists to fuel my moods. I also love creating individualized playlists for friends. One of my bridesmaids gifts (ahem, years ago I might add) was a unique playlist for each friend, created specifically just for them, of songs that either reminded me of them or spoke to our friendship on some level (so, as you can imagine given my age, most of those mixes had a ton of Spice Girls, Backstreet & Britney).

Halloween is no exception. There are so many great songs out there that inspire that spooky mood, even outside of your typical "Monster Mash" type songs. So I've created the perfect playlist for October that's sure to get you in the spirit (but honestly, I listen to this year round. The first song is legit a banger).

In keeping with the theme of spooky, I had to dress as one of the most iconic spooky characters of all time (ok, well, next to Winifred Sanderson that is). Said character also has a killer theme song that will no doubt get stuck in your head as soon as I say her name: Wednesday Addams (duh duh duh duh *snap snap*).

This look is also incredibly easy and would double as a great Halloween costume in a pinch, especially if you go all in and powder your face for that perfect shade of pale and add some dark lipstick. You can get really creative with the props too! Lucky for me, my friend Sarah literally collects skulls and she came in clutch with the props for me!

Halloween might look a little different this year for some (trick-or-treating is still happening where I live), but that doesn't mean you still can't dress in your most festive (Uncle) Fester attire and put the Halloween mood-tunes on repeat. So without further ado, I give you, my ultimate Halloween mix. You can follow here on Spotify or pick & choose which songs you like & build your own playlist!
