Walking With A Ghost, The Other Halloween Playlist

Walking With A Ghost Halloween PlaylistMonster Mash is not on this list.

Anytime I help plan a party, I always end up doing the playlist. I don’t have the widest or most discerning musical knowledge, but I like to put in the effort to create a vibe everyone will like. Some like to plug in their iPhone at the last minute and press shuffle, but I maintain that a well thought out list can take a gathering to the next level. For example, if I’m making a list for a dance party with attendees from the ages of 25-35, I always include “No Diggity” by Blackstreet or “This Is How We Do It” by Montell Jordan. Everybody freaks out and joins the dance floor. Great bonding ensues. Nostalgia is a powerful weapon.

Now, for this playlist, I skipped on the traditional Halloween songs, except for Thriller. Because Thriller. Now go ahead and add these to your Spotify because I know you haven’t even started on your playlist for your party.
