The best night of the year is almost here, and I can't wait! To tide me over until the end of the month, I've been creating a Halloween playlist of my favorite spooky songs. Here are a few that are on my list:
"This is Halloween" by Panic! At the Disco
—'Tis the season for listening to the Nightmare Before Christmas
soundtrack on repeat, but I particularly love this cover of the main song by my favorite pop-punk band. Don't judge me.
"I Put a Spell on You" by Annie Lennox
—The movie Hocus Pocus
has forever associated this song with Halloween for me, but my favorite version is this bluesy cover by Annie Lennox.
"Black No. 1" by Type O Negative
—This goth anthem is appropriate all year round, but especially on All Hallow's Eve as mentioned in the song.
"Sin Eater" by Valentine Wolfe
—This is my favorite song off the new album The Elegiac Repose
by gothic metal band Valentine Wolfe. The haunting vocals make me feel like I should be walking through a cemetery while I listen.
"Vampire" by Xandria
—I love me some cheesy vampire songs. Especially when done by female-fronted metal bands.
"System" by Chester Bennington
—This was one of the best songs off the Queen of the Damned
soundtrack, and its vaguely macabre lyrics make it perfect for the spooky season.
"Seven Devils" by Florence + The Machine
—We've got vampires covered, but how about some devils? I love Florence's voice, and the lyrics of this song are especially chilling.
"Stop, I'm Already Dead" by Deadboy & The Elephantmen
—You may recognize this one as the iZombie
theme song. Isn't it catchy?
"Das Tier In Mir (Wolfen)" by E Nomine
—I don't speak German, but you can get the gist of the song by knowing that the title translates to "The Animal Inside Me."
What songs get you in the mood for Halloween? Let me know in the comments!
