Starts off acoustic, then goes for full-synth intensity and never looks back. Hope it becomes part of your creepy holiday weekend!

    Nick Drake - Road
    Starting off acoustic and folky, to capture that autumn, Sweater Weather vibe πŸ”₯
  2. β€’
    The Rolling Stones - Play With Fire
    Their creepiest song
  3. β€’
    Lightnin' Hopkins - Awful Dreams
    The master dealing truth amidst an otherworldly production (the drums were recorded so peculiarly that they sound like a digital "whoosh" of air)
  4. β€’
    Hank Williams - Ramblin' Man
    His creepiest song
  5. β€’
    The Flamingos - I Only Have Eyes For You
    You've walked into some strange 50s dreamscape
  6. β€’
    Leonard Cohen - You Want It Darker
    Fabulous new one from this genius, with the great opening lines: "If you are the dealer, I'm out of the game/If you are the healer, means I'm broken and lame/If thine is the glory, then mine must be the shame/You want it darker? We kill the flame."
  7. β€’
    Kyle Dixon & Michael Stein - Stranger Things Theme
    And if you actually wanted it darker, now it gets darker. Let's go on a synthy journey..
  8. β€’
    Moniker - Cloak Of The Sky
    Wait 'til they change key on you !!!
  9. β€’
    Air - Sexy Boy
    Their creepiest song
  10. β€’
    John Carpenter - Theme From "The Fog"
    My favorite piece of John Carpenter/Alan Howarth music. It doesn't get any better than this...
  11. β€’
    Matthew Dear w/ @TeganandSara - Pale Shelter
    Fab Tears For Fears cover, we're moving into those Donnie Darko guy in a rabbit suit feels now...
  12. β€’
    Gorillaz ft. Mos Def & Bobby Womack - Stylo
    Things are moving, we're back on the road like we were at the very beginning...
  13. β€’
    The Jesus & Mary Chain - Darklands
    For gazing at your shoes in front of your Halloween crush
  14. β€’
    The Turtles - It Was A Very Good Year
    By far my favorite version of this song, from their perfect first album. When Howard Kaylan takes his voice up an octave in the last verse? YES. Also the irony of what a terrible year in human history this has been πŸ™ƒπŸ™ƒπŸ™ƒ
  15. β€’
    Stevie Wonder - Visions
    Just because it's perfect and fits, somehow
  16. β€’
    Daniel Johnston - Casper The Friendly Ghost
    DJ lays waste to the bullies of the world with his unique spin on Casper's tragic tale
  17. β€’
    @TeganandSara - Walking With A Ghost
    I love that the sly lyrics of this song encourage the question, "Are you out of my mind, or am I?"
  18. β€’
    Mr. Gasser And The Weirdos - Surfer Ghoul
    Discovered this record at Amoeba in April and knew this song would end up on a Halloween playlist
  19. β€’
    Kavinsky & Lovefoxxx - Nightcall
    Like Ryan saying "Hey girl" with serial killer vocal distortion
  20. β€’
    The Cure - Cold
    Peak bleak from Pornography. Get out your goth makeup!
  21. β€’
    Joy Division - Atmosphere
    "Steve or Jonathan?" is the pop culture question that best exemplifies where humanity's at right now
  22. β€’
    Bauhaus - Bela Lugosi's Dead
    Scraping a pick against a guitar for nine or so unsettling minutes (hope you love it). The scene where the kids finally kill the monster.
  23. β€’
    David Bowie - I Can't Give Everything Away
    Back to a major key for a bittersweet epilogue from our dearly departed Starman
  24. β€’
    Candy Says - Not Kings
    Just a really, really great song that plays in the end credits of the film Burn Burn Burn and also the end credits of this playlist. Everybody has some part of their life that they can relate to this..

    Cutting Crew - (I Just) Died In Your Arms
