100 Songs for your Halloween Soundtrack

Let the spooky times roll

Need a soundtrack for your pumpkin carving, decorative frenzy or greeting them tiny little witches and goblins this Hallowe’en? Well, forget about slapping together a playlist on the streaming service of your choice because your friends at indie88 have got you covered yet again.

Sure, there are many lists available online: “Top Ten Halloween Tunes” or the millennial compadre: “25 Halloween Songs That Aren’t Monster Mash”, but this Halloween festivities last longer than that content provides AND what is wrong with the Monster Mash?! It’s a graveyard smash!

These hundred songs range decades, from fifties novelty to gothic rock. We include the pop-perfect hits like Time Warp and Ghostbusters to creepy alternative cuts from The Cramps and Bauhaus to modern twists courtesy of Arcade Fire and Bloc Party. It’s all Thriller! No filler, baby!

Press play. Let it roll through or shuffle it and enjoy ol’ Hallow’s Eve.
