Halloween falls on a Saturday this year. Obviously this means we’ve been planning since the day after Christmas, but for those of you who haven’t we’re here to help.
If you’re throwing your own Halloween party you know your playlist is EV-RY-THING. It’s the difference between winning sorority president (à la Scream Queens), finally dancing with the guy you’ve been crushing on for months (who just so happened to show up in the cutest cow onesie costume you’ve ever seen) and you know—everyone moving on to the next party and goodbye Halloween party.
It’s hard knowing which classics will get everyone dancing and which songs are total duds. Luckily we’ve done the legwork for you and even tested these out ourselves at Wet Seal Headquarters.
This ain’t your mama’s Halloween playlist (Because seriously what could be more of a vibe-killer than Monster Mash?!). We’ve mixed in a few oldies, a few newer songs and possibly some total creeper tunes…because why not?
Here is our curated Halloween 2015 Party Playlist guaranteed to keep the party going:
This one may be obvious, but it’s not Halloween without this ‘80s classic.
Frankly any song that starts out with “Off with your head” will make our list.
Think of this as a “get everyone to the dance floor” song….like the Cha Cha Slide of Halloween but the only thing you need to do is snap—over, and over and over again.
This was the song playing at Aaron Samuel’s friends house at the Halloween party in Mean Girls. (We’re also pretty sure this song will make you look even more like a mouse, duh!)
We all know there’s nothing more terrifying than a spider.
We can already imagine ourselves howling at the moon.
If there’s one thing more scary than this song it’s learning all the words to this song.
If you’ve got friends in low places make sure they’re at your Halloween party.
Is Annie okay? We have no idea. It’s just a great song!
We have to wow them with our great taste in music at some point in the night.
One thing we know for sure—if you’re going to get abducted, Halloween is the night to do it. So take me, ta-ta-take me.
“Come Little Children” by Erutan
We guarantee it will be the creepiest slow dance, like ever.
