Spooky Tunes for Halloween

Spooky Tunes Facebook

The leaves are changing color, the air is getting crisp, the warm smell of apples and pumpkins are wafting through homes across the nation, but there's one thing that's missing… a playlist of course! A perfect autumnal celebration wouldn't be complete without some spooky tunes to accompany the festivities. Now, I know what you're probably thinking, some Halloween classics can get a bit cheesy and dare I say, childish. However, no need to worry! Of course it's nice to have a classic Monster Mash or even This is Halloween from the Nightmare Before Christmas soundtrack, but Halloween music doesn't have to exist in a small bubble, there are loads of songs out there, that although might not necessarily sound like they're straight out of an Alfred Hitchcock film, they do give that same sense of autumn warmth that freshly baked pie on a chilly day brings.
