MONSTER JAMS: The Perfect Halloween Songs to *pumpkin* Spice Up your Playlist

The leaves are changing, the air is getting crisp, and Halloween is just around the corner for the spooky goblins and ghouls. 

Halloween music is a very underrated genre compared to any other holiday. That is why the Music Scene Media team collected a few Halloween songs to *pumpkin* spice up your music taste this season…

Pumpkin by The Regrettes 

The Regrettes is a punk rock band led by frontwoman, Lydia Night. From their 2019 album, “How Do You Love?,” The Regrettes gives the perfect song to carve pumpkins to and slow dance in Halloween costumes with “Pumpkin.” 

Season Of The Witch by Lana Del Rey

From the film, “Scary Stories to Tell in the Dark,” singer Lana Del Rey gives a haunting rendition of Donovan’s song, “Season Of The Witch.” This song gives the staple Halloween paranoia atmosphere of a cat or even Ghostface creeping by. 

Dracula by Julia Wolf

Not only did Julia Wolf give a single that mixes indie and hip-hop for listeners that listeners can play at a Halloween kickback, but she is also obsessed with Halloween and anything spooky-related. Tune into the new Halloween anthem, “Dracula,” out now. 

I Put A Spell On You by Marilyn Manson

In 1995, Marilyn Manson made a cover of Screamin’ Jay Hawkins’ iconic song, “I Put A Spell On You,” for Manson’s album, “Smells Like Children.” Manson perfectly gives the eerie feeling Hawkins gave with a hint of heavy rock. 

Halloween by Misfits 

“Halloween” by Misfits is an innocent turned gore song about the dark side of Halloween. The song talks about “bonfires burning bright” to “candy apples and razor blades.” This song has been on many Halloween playlists since its release on October 31, 1981.
