Updated Halloween Playlist (2021)

Hey blog readers. I just wanted to write a little note since I actually have the time to do it. These days much of my free time gets eaten up with household chores/errands. We’re very understaffed at work, and one of my co-workers recently had to take bereavement leave because of a dead family member. I haven’t even been doing too many virtual trivia games, but not for the reasons you’d think. We’ve had some nice evenings for sitting outside, so my husband and I have been enjoying sitting on our deck and watching wildlife. We recently saw some cottontail rabbits doing their courtship dance, though they weren’t kind enough to let us watch them doing the “bunny boogie!”

Did you know Eastern cottontails are sexually mature at just three months old? This was taken from behind our house.

On a recent afternoon, I took some “laundry time” to update my Halloween music playlist. This playlist was born in 2018 when I took a trip to Harrisville State Park to stay in a cabin for two nights. By sheer accident, we rented the cabin on a weekend when Halloween events were occurring. Including trick-or-treating in the campground! My husband and I don’t have kids and had to hastily do…something. We visited a nearby Dollar General and bought a few Halloween decorations, though most had already been picked over. Even the candy supplies were scarce. To add a certain “something” to the trick-or-treaters’ experience, I put together a list of Halloweenish songs I had saved on my hard drive.

Since then, that list has expanded exponentially! There are songs from movies about Halloween, songs about devils/witches, disco tracks, alternative tracks, rock tracks, metal tracks, new wave tracks, hip-hop tracks, at least one country track and one classical track (hey I try to be diverse)!

A scene from the campground at Harrisville State Park in 2018. Does this mean only dead people drink Coors? 🙂

Please note, this playlist isn’t intended for children! You’ll find no songs about purple people eaters or monsters mashing. Most of them should be findable on Spotify, except the tracks from the Ravenous motion picture soundtrack (which are downloadable on Amazon).
