My 2017 Halloween Playlist - #FridayFun #FridayFunday #TGIF #HalloWeekend

Updated: Oct 30, 2017

Happy #HalloWeekend, everyone! How have you been? I've been writing a short story and some flash fiction, as well as reading all of the Percy Jackson books, while working, so I've had fun on my end. It's been a long week, but the weekend is here, and that means it's time to party! Halloween isn't till Tuesday, but tonight kicks off the real festivities: no work, no school—just candy, costumes, and cauldrons!

To help you kick off the HalloWeekend right, I've compiled a petrifying playlist of terrifying tunes, a mixture of different genres, tempos, moods, and languages, all from my own collection. Some are Halloween-themed; some have elements of magic, mystery, or monsters; and some are just scary or eerie-sounding... But all of them get me in the mood to spook and be spooked. It's like plugging a speaker into a jack-o'-lantern!

The playlist is available on iTunes here, with the exception of the ones hyperlinked below (which weren't available on iTunes for one reason or another).

Now, hand me the aux cord and hold on to your witch's hats—here's my Halloween 2017 Playlist:

I hope this list inspires you to make one of your own! Did I miss a classic? Did a favorite artist of yours create a Halloween hit? Let me know in the comments! Tell me your top ten terrifying tunes—what songs can't you go without hearing every Halloween?

Before you leave, I'm sending you off with some important info. Halloween is supposed to be scary and spooky, but ultimately a safe holiday. If your costume is dark, make sure to put some reflective tape on it so you're visible at night. Never leave your drinks unattended. Know your limits. Don't drink and drive. Stick with a friend, and if you go out with a friend, leave with that friend! If you don't have a designated driver for your group, here's a Lyft discount: BLESSING632124. Stay safe this weekend, y'all! See you next week with some advice for the upcoming elections.
