20 Current Songs to Add to Your Halloween Playlist

Halloween is right around the corner! During October, I like to listen to Halloween music. Have you noticed that in the last 50 years, Halloween playlists are mostly the same old music? Listen, I love the Monster Mash as much as the next “ghoul”, but sometimes I want something a little more current!

Whether you are getting ready to throw a big Halloween party and you need to coolest playlist to impress the teenagers or you just need some Halloween music to jam to on your way to work, I’ve got you covered. If you think Halloween music is the Purple People Eater and I Put a Spell on You, get ready to be educated with my list of the 20 Songs to Add to Your Halloween Playlist.

I like to think that I know good music when I hear it. My taste in music is pretty eclectic. You can find me listening to anything from Kanye to Creedence Clearwater Revival (but it’s mostly somewhere in the middle). For the last few years, it’s been my goal to create the best Halloween playlist and keep it clean. That is right, you won’t find any dirty words on this Halloween playlist! I’ve saved you some time of search and listening, and share my list with you!

Kim McNeely
Kim grew up in a small town in northeast Alabama. She majored in journalism in college at Faulkner University. There she met baseball-playing Florida boy named David who swept her off her feet and then married her. David went right into a coaching career and Kim lost her desire to write. In 2008, they started a family and Kim fell in love with motherhood. She has been a stay at home mom for almost 12 years devoting her time to raising three children. Her kids have grown up on baseball fields and in ball parks. They moved to Lithia a few years ago and enjoy exploring Tampa and checking out the local baseball teams. Kim likes being creative and crafty. She is a list-maker, scheduler, and planner. She loves planning play dates, parties, and budget-friendly family activities. When Kim isn't at a baseball game, she spends her days convincing her 11 year old, Emerson, to put down the cell phone; helping her 8 year old, Everly, with math homework; and entertaining her playful 5 year old and only son, Easton. If she finds some free time, she writes her blog, catches up on her favorite TV shows, scrolls social media, and folds massive piles of laundry. Her desire to write returned when she realized that her children were an endless source of inspiration. She also realized she knew more about baseball than the average mom and wants to share her knowledge with others. You can follow Kim's blog and Instagram as she documents The Baseball Life.
