The Halloween playlist

Let's get freaky.

On this eclectic playlist of tunes with the most tenuous of Halloween connections, we travel through vintage numbers, 80s sing-a-longs, rock'n'roll groovers, hip hop monsters, and then into darker, heavier tracks, finally winding down with some chilled ones.

Now try not to panic, but Micheal Jackson Thriller and The Monster Mash have been omitted from this particular Halloween playlist. Just expressing a bit of anarchy in the spirit of the season (but not too much, Ghostbusters made the cut).

Enjoy the music, and remember to embrace both your silly and your dark side - a crucial juxtaposition in order to maximise halloween funtimes.
