There’s a shadow coming over the horizon, just on the other side of Thanksgiving, a time of year that, if you’re anything like us, is always met with a deep feeling of dread: the yearly influx of Christmas music. For what seems like an eternity we have variations on the same 4 or 5 songs drilled slowly into our skulls until the sun rises on the New Year and we wake up shaking and sweating, relieved that it’s over but knowing that it’s only a matter of time before it crawls out of the shadows to feast upon our sanity once more.

The way we see it, there’s already a holiday whose whole point is to make us all shaky and sweaty and more importantly have fun while we’re feeling that way...Halloween! So let’s forget about Christmas music altogether and focus on the much more entertaining novelty music of Halloween. The structure is every bit as corny, but instead of being about reindeer and babies or whatever Christmas music is going on about, these songs are about hanging out with oozing swamp monsters and sexy vampires and reanimated corpses. As if that's not enough, when you're listening to Halloween music at a party you can legally call that party a "spooktacular," which is objectively the best type of party you can have.

Here's a collection we put together to soundtrack your next party or - we can't stress enough how great it feels to say this - spooktacular!! We hope that it brings you some joy while you wait helplessly for the grim spectre of Christmas music to return and devour your happiness.
