10 Unconventional Scary Songs For Your Halloween Playlist

Rihanna, Lady Gaga, Rita Ora, Iggy Azalea

It’s the spookiest time of the year and that means pumpkins, candy, costumes, and “Thriller.” Always so much “Thriller.” While we love MJ, there are only so many times we can hear the same Halloween songs without shoving candy corn in our ears (don’t do that).

If you’re looking for some music to get you in the Halloween mood and don’t want to listen to “Monster Mash” for the fifth time this week, we have a playlist for you.

Here are 10 unconventional Halloween songs that are spooky all year round.


“Sweet Dreams,” Beyoncé

Tattoo your name across my heart
So it will remain
Not even death can make us part
What kind of dream is this


“Disturbia,” Rihanna

It’s a thief in the night
To come and grab you
It can creep up inside you
And consume you
A disease of the mind
It can control you
I feel like a monster


“Gods and Monsters,” Lana Del Rey

In the land of gods and monsters,
I was an angel.
Living in the garden of evil,
Screwed up, scared, doing anything that I needed.

“Party Monster,” The Weeknd

Paranoid (Paranoid)
Paranoid (P-paranoid)
Paranoid (P-paranoid)
But I see something in you (you’re paranoid)

“She Wolf,” Shakira

Moon’s awake now, with eyes wide open
My body is craving, so feed the hungry

“Judas,” Lady Gaga

I’ll wash his feet with my hair if he needs
Forgive him when his tongue lies through his brain
Even after three times he betrays me

“Monster,” Kanye West featuring Jay-Z and Nicki Minaj

OK first things first I’ll eat your brains
Then I’mma start rocking gold teeth and fangs

“Ghost,” Fefe Dobson

The only gift that you ever gave
Was that you let me just get away
I hope I haunt you in every dream
And you feel a little misery

“Heads Will Roll,” The Yeah Yeah Yeahs

The men cry out the girls cry out
The men cry out, oh no
Off, off with your head
Dance, dance ’til you’re dead

“Black Widow,” Iggy Azalea and Rita Ora

This is the web, the web that you weave
So baby now rest in peace (It’s all over with now)
