I always like to celebrate Halloween with a good creepy soundtrack.

Here's a couple to get us started...

Happy Halloween! πŸŽƒπŸŽ΅

Our wedding DJ (and friend) said he'd only DJ our wedding if our first dance was to the monster mash.

I was pretty down with that..but we didn't end up doing it. We had a 'first swirl' on a soft serve machine instead. We had black tea ice cream and tapioca πŸ˜›


I always think of this classic on Halloween


I'd also mentioned the Crow Soundtrack. The movie is older, but has a dark feel to it and the music follows.

It's got all kinds of great artists on it. NIN, Rage Against the Machine, The Cure etc.


To be honest, I got loads more to share...

Thanks to @peter for showing me this one recently:

Credits to @nickytonline for jogging my memory about this MJ tune with Thriller:

Not so much a creepy song as it is a terrifying music video (WARNING: this one is brutal and stars Jake Gyllenhaal as a murderer... it's bloody):

And how could I forget:


Ryan Gosling and his friend collaborated with a children's choir to make this bop.

Some fun facts about the album: Gosling and his friend bonded over their love of ghosts, so they decided to make the album. The two of them played all the instruments on all the songs even if they had not played them before. They tried to do every song in less than three takes to highlight any imperfections.

Very spooky~


I'm a lover of the classics! πŸŽƒ


Monster mash, but on Valentine's Day...


Great creepy music to have on while you write code!


This is a good season for some Nerdcore Hiphop!
Rhyme Torrents Halloween EP 2


Last year, I listened to this playlist on repeat.



Me and my old band got a chance to play with these guys 8 years ago. πŸ˜„
