This Non-Traditional Halloween Music Playlist Is Full Of Ghostly Beats & Haunting Melodies!
And just like that, it’s Halloweekend! And for the next few days (yes, we’re counting Monday and Tuesday, too) different variations of Barbie, baby vampires, and ghouls will be looking for a soundtrack to match their spooky vibes. And although we look forward to blasting Thriller during October just as much as “All I Want For Christmas Is You” in December, it’s time to switch things up a bit. So, forget the traditional spooky tunes; we're here to cast a musical spell with tracks that are perfect for the season but far from the norm. From Childish Gambino's "Zombies" to Siouxsie and the Banshees' "Night Shift," this playlist is your go-to for an unconventional and spirited Halloween soirée.
