Playlist: Halloween for the Modern Age

By Kristina Rivera

This is a Halloween playlist for the modern age. While “Monster Mash” and Michael Jackson’s “Thriller” are classics, it can be tiring listening to the same songs year after year.

This hour-long party playlist is a mix of old and new and combines elements of hip-hop, rock and tunes that are sure to liven up your Halloween party. The spooky mix is perfect for dancing with all your friends clad in your costumes, or even just hanging out at home to celebrate the horrifying holiday.

The playlist begins with the chilling “Stranger Things” theme song to set the mood and moves right into “Zombies” by Childish Gambino, and other R&B and hip-hop inspired songs. From there, the tunes pick up in tempo into classics like “Psycho Killer” by Talking Heads and “Another One Bites the Dust” by Queen. The last few songs gradually build even further and culminate into one of the most dance-worthy Halloween tunes out there, the A-Trak remix of “Heads Will Roll” by Yeah Yeah Yeahs.

Gals, guys and ghouls rejoice. Play these tunes at your Halloween party and it will be anything but dead.
