Now that Thanksgiving festivities have wrapped up it’s time to go full-on Halloween mode.

Some of us have already decided what we’re dressing up as and we know there’s some of you who will wait till’ the last minute. Well, if you want to get in the Halloween spirit while brainstorming the perfect costume or better yet—while DIY-ing your perfect costume, we’ve got you covered with five songs that will out the Halloween in you. Cheers witches!

Haunted – Beyoncé

 If the start of this music video doesn’t creep you out I don’t know what will—the TV screens are The Ring-esque for sure. The ghostly lyrics are enough to make this a must-listen this Halloween.  Bow-down, witches because Queen B is in the house. “My haunted lungs, ghost in the sheets/I know if I’m onto you, you must be haunting me/My wicked tongue, where will it be?”


Disturbia – Rihanna

Can you believe this song is 10 years old? This iconic song is no surprise and a total must play at your Halloween party. Get your ghouls together and reenact the Disturbia dance! The ultimate #SquadGhouls


Ghost – Halsey

Some say this is Halsey’s most popular song! This song starts with creepy yet beautiful whispering in your ear. We’ve all been ghosted before… did they really exist? “My ghost… where’d you go?” she sings.


Spiderwebs- No Doubt

With a slow start and an energizing chorus this song will be a hit and have you dancing into spiderwebs. Gwen Stefani, you’ve caught us in your web.


This is Halloween – The Nightmare Before Christmas

We had to end with this classic song from The Nightmare Before Christmas. Has anyone else ever wished they could move to this town? If this isn’t Halloween, we don’t know what is. Let’s get this party startled!

“This is Halloween, everybody make a scene/Trick or treat till the neighbors gonna die of fright/It’s our town, everybody scream/In this town of Halloween”
