Spooky, funky skeletons send shivers down your spine.
At the time of releasing this Halloween playlist, this year's spooky holiday will be very different. Of course, there are a few reasons why but the main reason it is different for me regards a more personal matter.
Ever since I can remember, my parents have hosted a Halloween party every year. Each party is unique; party themes change, guest lists fluctuate, and sometimes even the venue moves location. Maybe the biggest change of all is my attitude towards them. It's not like I have ever disliked them, just that I have grown to appreciate them in a new way in recent years.
My invitations have moved from a limited close friend group to friends from different areas in my life. Instead of trying to hide away from unknown guests, I am now more confident to have small to any ghoul or zombie that starts to chat me up (plus, it's most likely just my parents' neighbors or extended family members.) Most importantly, I just try to have an overall good time instead making a beeline for all the spooky themed refreshments.
This year was set-up to be possibly the last hoorah. This year being the 20th anniversary of the event, a blue moon on Halloween, and Halloween landing on a Saturday had added to making this being a perfect opportunity for a big (monster) bash. However, the universe had other plans to teach my family to go with the flow and plan for next year instead.
So as an homage to my family's tradition I made this playlist. Originally I started working on this playlist a while back just so my parents could play it for the party, which is why it is over 6 hours of spooky, funky tunes. But for this year, it's for my family and anyone else who wants the music to fill their Halloween day with tunes to rattle their bones.
Your spooky audio adventure begins here.
Do you have any Halloween traditions? If any of them have been cancelled for this year, how do you plan to celebrate instead? I know I'll be listening to Spooky, Scary Skeletons, Nightmare on My Street, and more while carving pumpkins and roasting the seeds. ♪
