Our Halloween 2019 Playlist

Still stuck on what to jam to tonight? Don't worry, because staff members Maxine (Digital Media Specialist) and...well, me, have pooled some of our Halloween favourites into one convenient playlist for you! Whether you're going out or getting ready to hand out that candy at home, give this a spin and get ready to get spooked!

We've done our very best to include a healthy mix of old and new, and a colourful range of spooky fall moods. From dark, moody indie acoustics to theatrical Halloween rock anthems, there's something for everyone in here. (There's also a touch of the surprisingly sweet...see if you can spot it!)

I'll take a moment to specifically recommend a great Canadian indie band whose music generally has a wonderfully gothic aura to it...Timber Timbre! They're one of my favourite Halloween-season artists, so definitely give them a listen tonight. I'd especially recommend Under Your Spell for tonight.

Without further delay, enjoy! Have a safe and very, very happy Halloween.

The CFMU Halloween 2019 Playlist

Maxine's top pick from this list is "Season of the Witch" by Donovan. Mine is "I Put a Spell On You" by Nina Simone.

What's yours? Let me know! (If you can find me in the dark, rainy woods, that is...OOoooOOoooOOooOOO!)
