Top 5 Must Have Songs On Your Halloween Party Playlist
Halloween is right around the corner and if you are planning on having a Halloween party or just like listening to spooky music, then it’s time to make a playlist.
Sure, everyone is going to have songs on there like “Monster Mash,” “This Is Halloween,” “Thriller” or “Ghostbusters,” but if you want to stand out, have some songs that still fit the vibe along with the classics.
Most people think of their favorite Halloween movies, but Halloween music is very underrated, so be sure to create a sick playlist.
Here are the top 5 songs you should have on your Halloween party playlist.
“Haunted” by Taylor Swift
Although technically this song has nothing to do with Halloween, the title itself makes it qualify. “Can’t go back, now I’m haunted,” Swift sings in the chorus. Halloween is always a spooky time and haunting by ghouls, ghosts and goblins is a thing that is always depicted in Halloween movies. Plus, the orchestra section in “Haunted” is enough to qualify it for a Halloween playlist. Taylor Swift songs work for many different occasions that she could have her own playlist for Halloween or Fall.
“Candyman” by Christina Aguilera
Besides the spooky aspect of it all, for kids, Halloween is about dressing up and getting candy. However, this is definitely not a song to play if you have kids at the party, unless you use the censored version. “Candyman” is a perfect, upbeat song that can get anyone in the Halloween spirit and wishing you had your favorite candy bar while listening to it. Christina Aguilera sure knows how to make a hit.
“Chillin’ Like A Villain” from Disney Channel’s Descendants
Whether it’s your favorite Disney villain, superhero villain, or any other one, Halloween is a good time to dress up as a bad or mean character. “Chillin’ Like A Villain” from the Descendants 2 soundtrack is a great song to add to your playlist. It will get everyone up dancing while also fitting in with the theme. If someone dresses up as a character from that franchise, even better. It will be a hit with the kids and teens.
“Do You Believe In Magic?” By The Lovin’ Spoonful or Aly & Aj
Another thing people associate Halloween with is magic. “Do You Believe In Magic?” is a song originally by The Lovin’ Spoonful and remade by the sister duo Aly & AJ. This song should definitely be on every Halloween playlist, no matter what version, along with “I Put A Spell On You.” They are both classics and can set the mood for a fun Halloween party.
“I Want Candy” by Bow Wow
Just like “Candyman,” the hit “I Want Candy” is great for a party with kids, or even adults. You can use the original version by Bow Wow or the remake by Aaron Carter. Even though the song is about a girl named Candy, many people think it’s about candy, the food, so crank it up and enjoy your favorite sweet treat.
