Express Your Spooky Season in More Ways Than One

I am almost positive that if you ask anyone what their favorite season is, they will either say Summer, because of the pool parties and warm weather, or Fall, for its ghostly season and chilly temperatures. Fall has the perfect temperatures, sweaters, and decor, but one thing some may forget is music. When you think of holiday music, you most likely think of “Last Christmas,” “Jingle Bell Rock,” “Rudolph, The Rednosed Reindeer,” or “Baby It’s Cold Outside.” Although these songs are for the holidays, they are not the only ones. There are many songs associated with Fall or Halloween, and they can definitely help you get into the spooky spirit.

In my opinion, one of the best parts of Fall is the Halloween season. Of course with this time of year comes spooky themed parties. What comes with parties? Right, a great playlist. For your next Halloween party, you should definitely have a nice mix of oldies, but definitely the classics that everyone knows. The most well known classic is most likely “Thriller” by Michael Jackson, along with “Halloween Theme Song” by Michael Myers, “Monster Mash” by Gary Ramsey, “Abracadabra” by the Steve Miller Band, and finally, “Spooky Scary Skeletons” by Andrew Gold. Even if you don’t recognise these names, I’m positive you have heard these songs; They’re definitely a staple for you Fall 2019 playlist.

The spooky season is undoubtedly an essential part of Fall, but like me, quite a few people appreciate the chillness of the season. There are many songs that fall into the chill category, but these are the top five for your new playlist for sure. All of these songs stand out in different ways for multiple reasons. Foremost, they’re obviously chill, and they go with the coffee shop vibe. Along with this though, most of them are pretty cute songs and they are very capable of giving you the same warm feeling that a sweater does. First on the list is a song called “September” by Earth, Wind, & Fire. It’s followed by “Banana Pancakes” written and sung by Jack Johnson, then “The Night We Met” by Lord Huron, “Fly Me To The Moon” by Frank Sinatra, and pretty much any song by Rex Orange County. The greatest part of this playlist is the different moods you can have while listening. You can go from upbeat, happy, and energetic, all the way back down to calm and sleepy. It’s a great party playlist, and it’s definitely great for studying and doing homework as well. Regardless, these songs are perfect for your Autumn playlist.
