It’s not a Halloween playlist.
If you’re in need of a more traditional Halloween playlist, go check out last October’s playlist, which was an homage to my favorite television character, Dean Winchester of Supernatural. You’ll find plenty of Halloween/horror/spooky songs there.
But if you’re in the mood for a playlist that’s a little less on-the-nose theme-wise, you should have a listen to 2019’s October playlist. Yes, you’ll find less lyrics about Hell, witches, and ghosts this time around. And lyrically, many of these songs are upbeat. But the music behind the lyrics in these songs definitely deliver when it comes to spooky, theatrical vibes. Plus, this playlist is perfect for those who crave a bit of late 90s, early 2000s nostalgia.
