This week we’ve put our heads together to make a fun list of some of our favorite scary—er, well, festive—songs for your Halloween playlists. Some are fun, some are classics, and some are just songs we like and want a reason to share. Whether you’re dressing up and going out or staying in and drinking up, we hope you find a song in this eclectic collection that suits your Halloween plans.(We’ve also included a few videos and slideshows for you this week, because let’s be real: What’s Halloween without the visual?)
Do you have any songs you can’t wait to listen to this time of year? Tweet us at @LitDarling or drop us a line on our Facebook and we’ll share your Halloween favorites with the rest of your fellow LD patrons!
A spooky and safe Halloween to all our Aural Fixation readers.

With a background in stage acting, professional experience working in PR & marketing, and a number ofsongwriting and recording projects to his name, this jack-of-at-least-several-trades currently lives—where else?—in eclectic Austin, Texas. He has recently taken the plunge and made the daunting but inevitable decision to put the "professional" in professional writer.
Austin writes and rants about music, identity, pop culture, dating, social media, gender and sexuality, and muggle studies.
