Come this time next week, many people will be listening to “The Monster Mash”, “Thriller” or “This is Halloween” for the umpteenth year in a row. While there’s absolutely nothing wrong with that, why not add a few new tracks into the mix?
There are several schools of thoughts for playlist creation. Some choose songs based solely on titles, others on genre or mood. For the following, we went with a few from column A, a few from column B, and maybe a couple from column Z.
This is not meant as a standalone playlist, simply suggestions for adding to your own.
