Music Between Friends Halloween Playlist: Sasha’s Picks

Happy Halloween!!  Along with Katie, I’ve compiled some songs to play tonight to celebrate a day where people dress up and be who/whatever they want, terrifying or fabulous, or terrifyingly fabulous and eat chocolate, yum. Here’s what’s on my list:

Arctic MonkeysPerhaps Vampires is a bit Strong but…

Yeah Yeah Yeahs – Buried Alive (feat. Dr. Octagon). The album artwork  for Mosquito could give children nightmares all on its own.

alt-JBreezeblocks.  The music video is what makes me feel like this song is meant for a horror film.

Radiohead – Bodysnatchers.  Apparently this song was recorded in a “dilapidated mansion” (creepy) plus any excuse I can use to get a Radiohead song on the playlist…

Franz Ferdinand Evil Eye.

LordeGlory and Guts

Akron/FamilyMany Ghosts

Kanye West– I am a God. The screaming is what makes this feel like Halloween — the type of song that would play during a movie scene where the main character is running for their life. *My reaction* But seriously, get the guy his croissant so he can calm down.

Ending my playlist is a funny song because I’m the kind of person who needs to chase something scary with something funny or cute or else I can’t sleep at night, so Werewolf Bar Mitzvah… it is! “Boys becoming men, men becoming wolves…” typical Halloween.
