Horror October: Spooky Songs

Last week, I posted a spooky soundtrack for Horror October, organised by Leanne at Literary Excursion. This week I’m posting some awesome songs with ‘spooky’ words in the title – not spooky sounding music. Songs that mention ghosts, graves, zombies etc!

The playlist is available to follow on Spotify. You can find the complete listing below.

  • Little Ghost – The White Stripes
  • Misguided Ghosts – Paramore
  • Ghost Town – The Specials
  • Children of the Grave – Black Sabbath
  • Cemetery Gates – Pantera
  • Perhaps Vampires Is A Bit Strong But… – Arctic Monkeys
  • Don’t Fear The Reaper – Blue Oyster Cult
  • Witchy Woman – The Eagles
  • Me and the Devil – Gil Scott-Heron
  • Season of the Witch – Karen Elson
  • Spellbound – Siouxsie and the Banshees
  • Highway to Hell – AC/DC (cover version, apparently they’re not on Spotify)
  • Sympathy for the Devil – The Rolling Stones
  • Some Kind of Monster – Metallica
  • Superstition – Stevie Wonder
  • Werewolves of London – Warren Zevon
  • Pet Semetary – The Ramones

What do you think of my playlist? What songs would you include on your own spooky-themed playlist?

  1. I love this, Rinn! I can’t listen now because I’m borrowing someone’s computer for the moment, but I will definitely be listening later. Looking over the list, though, I definitely love the songs you chose! I like how you included some songs that I feel are on a lot of Spooky/October themed playlist(like “I put a Spell on You”), but then mixed it up a little too, with something like “Sympathy for the Devil”. And Bad Moon Rising! One of my favorite songs.

    1. Thanks Stormy =) It’s one of mine too. I wasn’t sure which Robert Johnson song to put… either Crossroad Blues or Hellhound on my Trail, but I stuck with Crossroad Blues in the end.

  2. Wow, great playlist! These fit perfectly for the month :)Sympathy for the Devil is one of my favorite songs. I’ll have to bookmark this to listen to more throughout the month. Thanks for sharing!
