Halloween Playlist (147 songs)

When I first thought about creating a Halloween playlist, I thought, there’s not really many songs about Halloween, other than the classic “Monster Mash” …boy, was I wrong! Actually, after jumping down the musical rabbit hole, I was able to come up with 147 songs (including “Monster Mash” of course!)

HALLOWEEN 2020 ~ a preview of what’s to come…

The Autumn Playlist continues with SIDE B. Two years ago I put together a playlist to perfectly describe the season of autumn/fall.
