Halloween is coming up, and while we all love classic songs like “Thriller” and the “Monster Mash,” everyone’s playlists could use some updating. So before we all do the “Time Warp” again, here are five more modern songs to set the mood for your next Halloween party.

“Make Out in the Graveyard” by Matt Mahaffey

Short and sweet, this song is easy to dance to and lightens the mood while conjuring images of a not-so-innocent Halloween. Maybe your treat will be a kiss behind a gravestone?

“Science Fiction/Double Feature” by Me First and the Gimme Gimmes

A Halloween classic, “The Rocky Horror Picture Show” has some iconic songs, but Me First and the Gimme Gimmes give this song a punk twist, making it perfect for a party.

“Hunting for Witches” by Bloc Party

You can tell by the title alone that this song is perfect for the season. An eerily upbeat synthesizer paired with Kele Okereke’s voice makes the song perfect for dancing while staying true to the spirit of Halloween.

“Let’s Kill Tonight” by Panic! At the Disco

The synthesizer makes another haunting appearance in this song, giving it a ghostly vibe that will make the dead turn in their graves and the living simply turn up.

“Glory and Gore”- Lorde

From her attire to her captivating voice, Lorde emanates Halloween and “Glory and Gore” is no exception. Lorde’s hypnotizing voice and dark tone make it easy to imagine witches at a cauldron brewing the tricks of Halloween.
