If your Halloween soundtrack features the rustle of candy wrappers being opened furtively in dark corners when your family is sleeping, you’re not alone. This is definitely one the sweetest sounds of this spooky holiday, but if it is your only musical accompaniment, you might want to think about diversifying your Halloween music playlist. You’ve come to the right place.

We’ve scoured dozens of Halloween music playlists (it was thirsty work, let us tell ya!) and come up with the ultimate spooky music for your ghoulish gatherings. With all due respect to Time Warp, Monster Mash and MJ’s Thriller (RIP), but we wanted our Halloween party music to really amp up the freaky factor. We wanted it to be as delightfully wicked as the holiday itself. That’s why our Halloween music playlist is not only electrically eclectic, but so good it’ll send shivers down your spine.

Get ready to dance! It’s Steam Whistle’s Halloween Music Playlist! Tune in to this terrifying, toe-tapping mashup on Spotify.
