Every Song You Need On Your 2016 Halloween Playlist

Halloween traditions may come and go, but a hauntingly epic playlist lasts forever.

Whether you’re going as your favourite Game of Thrones character, vintage Taylor Swift, or a lock of Ryan Lochte’s green hair, it’s time to start preparing for the spookiest holiday. And that means curating an annual Halloween playlist.

Good news — we’ve gone ahead and done it for you. We created two essential playlists: The Haunting Classics and The Sinister Newbies. One offers the classic, creepy-crawly sounds of Halloween's past. Another features modern jams with a darker twist. Listen to one. Listen to both. But do the "Monster Mash" at least once.

These songs are also best enjoyed while snacking on some year-old candy corn.
