Get Superstitious With This Friday The 13th Playlist


The only Friday 13th of the year has come and we’re sure you’ve already started your scary movie marathon or listened to the same, old horror-themed music for the last few years (thanks, “Thriller”). We’re here to change that with a playlist full of magic, monsters, and hauntings by all your favourite artists.

1. “Superstition” – Stevie Wonder

We aren’t very superstitious, but we are a little stitious.

2. “Haunted” – Beyonce

Beyonce sings of being haunted in love in this beautifully spooky track. Isn’t that the plot of Patrick Swayze’s movie Ghost?

3. “Ghost” – Fefe Dobson

Fefe Dobson sings about catching a lover cheating and going ‘ghost’ on him. Being haunted by an ex is easily our worst nightmare.

4. “Disturbia” – Rihanna

“Disturbia” is all about the horrors that the eyes can’t see: anxiety, mental anguish, confusion, and John Cena.

5. “Calling All The Monsters” – China Anne McClain

This fun, pop song is for all those who can’t stand horror movies and will be opting for Eddie Murphy’s The Haunted Mansion over The Haunting.

6. “E.T.” – Katy Perry ft. Kanye West

Though the song is about falling in love with a stranger, the alien visuals make it spooky enough for this playlist.

7. “The Monster” – Eminem ft. Rihanna

On this track, Eminem battles his inner demons, while Rihanna embraces hers. This basically summarizes the last 20 minutes of Mean Girls.

8. “Bloody Mary” – Lady Gaga

We all tried to scare our friends with the Bloody Mary game as a kid, but this song is a new take on the old tale as it discusses balancing the line between divine and human.

9. “Black Magic” – Little Mix

Little Mix claims to have the secret potion that will make any guy fall in love with you in this track. Girls, send some to us!

10. “Do You Believe In Magic” – Aly & AJ

This infectious remake of the 1965 song by The Lovin’ Spoonful is all about the magic of music and how it supplies power and freedom to the makers and consumers. But they did write the song in the ’70s, so their reference of “magic” might have a couple meanings.

Bonus: Monster by Kanye West Ft. Nicki Minaj, Rick Ross, and Jay-Z

This video wasn’t shown on television because it was deemed too violent, but we just thought it was banned because Nicki’s verse was a fire hazard. It’s no longer available on YouTube, but you can watch the controversial video here.
