These 8 Spooky Songs Are Essentials On Your Halloween Playlist

If you’ve not guessed already this month, we love Halloween here at The Honey Pop. We’re willing to bet you do too! Whether you’re having a rager or a quiet night in, we want to make sure you’ve got the perfect spooky Halloween playlist. You want spooky – we got it. Prepare to fall in love with these tunes we picked just for you!

Halsey – ‘Control’

Complete with groaning hallways, shadows, and monsters, if you’re looking for a creepy pop hit for your playlist, this is the track. One thing we love about Halsey is that when they commit to a concept, they really commit. ‘Control‘ comes from Halsey‘s debut album Badlands, and we will never get tired of it!

Taylor Swift – ‘Haunted’

We had no choice, you know we had to include this. We Swifties can’t wait for Speak Now (Taylor’s Version), but this version of ‘Haunted’ is pretty iconic in itself. The melody, the strings, and the urgency in her voice, it’s a masterpiece! Truly haunting…

“Come on, come on, don’t leave me like this / I thought I had you figured out / Can’t breathe whenever you’re gone / Can’t go back, I’m haunted”

Kate Bush – ‘Watching You Without Me’

We’ve all been on that Kate Bush hype for ‘Running Up That Hill’ (Thank you, Stranger Things!) Why not try another track from her Hounds of Love album? ‘Watching You Without Me’ is about a shipwrecked woman realizing she’s a ghost after she tries to continue as normal and can’t make contact with anyone. It’s a little creepy, but hey, it’s Halloween! Get spooky!

Mckenna Grace – ‘Haunted House’

We recently spoke to Mckenna about all things ghostly, and the girl elected to stay a week in Hill House. Her song ‘Haunted House‘ was even featured at the end of Ghostbusters: Afterlife, so we think Mckenna knows a thing or two about spooky places and playlists! Why not add her debut single to your Halloween playlist?

AS IT IS – ‘The Two Tongues (Screaming Salvation)’

From AS IT IS‘ hit 2018 album, The Great Depression, comes this spine-chilling number. The song opens by sampling Hank Snow’s 1974 classic ‘Prisoner’s Song.’ The repurposing of this sample can really give you goosebumps and perfectly sets the tone for this pop-punk anthem.

Billie Eilish – ‘Bury a Friend’

The stacked harmonies are chilling. Finneas‘ production sends a shiver down our spine, and the music video? We’ve yet to see anything creepier on MTV. Nightmare fuel from Billie but we stan. If you’re into spooky songs, ‘Bury a Friend’ needs a spot on your playlist!

Imagine Dragons – ‘Natural’

In the music video for ‘Natural,’ we see maggots, a piano that plays itself, and some ghostly-looking children. Safe to say, the intentions of this song were for it to be a little spooky and unnerving. Don’t worry, it doesn’t stray too far from the Imagine Dragons we all know and love. This song packs a punch.

Ashnikko – ‘Halloweenie III: Seven Days’

Ashnikko took the 12 days of Christmas concept and twisted it into something more Halloween-appropriate. The visuals are incredible, the lyrics will give you the creeps if you listen too hard, and Ashnikko is just one of our favorite musical Scream Queens. This is a must for your Halloween playlist!
