Playlist: Creepy Dancey Halloweeny

Halloween is the best because it’s a fall holiday without familial obligations and with costumes. That is, unless your family demands your participation in group costumes every year. (If so, I’m coming over!) To celebrate this sugary and spooky time of year, I put together a little playlist to thrill and delight your ghoulish ears! My goal was to create a mix that wouldn’t induce prolonged eye rolling or cringing. It starts out creepy and ends dancey!

  1. This makes me super happy. I’d also like to nominate Dead Man’s Bone’s “My Body’s a Zombie for You” for that moment when it’s 1:30 in the morning and you’re drunkenly dancing with that hot girl wearing a costume she maybe got the idea for from Autostraddle.
