Used to be if you wanted to play music at a big party, you’d hire a DJ. Then came the iPod, and all you had to do was hook it to speakers, make a playlist, and set it to shuffle. But that also meant buying an expensive device. Nowadays, you don’t even have to do that. Streaming is the thing, and every possible Halloween-themed song you could possibly want is readily available at a variety of streaming services. Let’s look at a few of the most popular ones.

Google Play Music

If you check out Google Play Music here, you’ll find its offerings are broken down to three groups: Halloween includes the Ultimate Halloween Party, I Was a Teenage Werewolf, and Kid’s Halloween Party. Scaring Trick or Treaters includes Iconic Horror Movie Scores, Something Terrible Is About To Happen, and Spooky Halloween Sound FX. Finally, Day Of The Dead features Melancholy Jangle, Rock Calaverita (Spanish) and Catrina Pop.


This Halloween Standards playlist has everything. Just open up Spotify and you’ll see it. Lots of tried and true Halloween classics like Monster Mash by Bobby “Boris” Pickett, Ghostbusters by Ray Parker, Jr, Frankenstein by the Edgar Winter Group, and the classic Werewolves of London by the late great Warren Zevon. There are a few stretches on this one, though. Twilight Zone by Golden Earring, I’m Your Boogie Man by K.C. & The Sunshine Gang, and Evil Woman by ELO just don’t seem to fit, despite titles that might suggest a match. So maybe edit this one down to the best of the bunch. Spotify also offers a Trick or Treat playlist.


Searching the term Halloween on Pandora will bring you up an assortment of stations, from classical to heavy metal.
