The Quintessential Halloween Mixtape

It’s that time of year again! I love Halloween. And with Halloween, comes Halloween parties.

So if you are having a Halloween party, you need to have the right music.

This is a list of the perfect songs for your Halloween mixtape.

If you disagree, you suck at music. I love music and I love Halloween, so these tracks are in constant rotation at any spooky shindig I attend. Or I beat up the DJ and take over for the night.

So here we go, the perfect Halloween mixtape. And yes, make a tape. Cassettes are coming back, don’t you know?

And fuck the “Monster Mash”.
