Nicole Alleyne, Design Director

Yeah Yeah Yeahs, “Heads Will Roll”

“The lyrics pretty much sum up the vibe at a fun Halloween party… Dance, dance until you die (die).” – NA

Elissa Anderson, Photo Editor

The Black Keys, “Howlin’ For You”

“I have two songs because I’m super indecisive and think both are perfect for Halloween. The first is “Howlin ‘For You” by Black keys and the second is the “Psychic Killer” of The leaders can talk. I feel like they put you in the space of a villain in a horror movie, but in an interesting way. [laughs]. “- EA

Amira Borders, Video Producer

Tyler, the Creator with A$AP Rocky, “Who Dat Boy”

“This song is like the one you would listen to right before the killer struck. Also, the music video is very wild and looks like a scene from a scary movie.” – AB

James Crowley, News Writer

My Chemical Romance, “Vampires will never hurt you”

“The song sounds like a horror movie between the chilling intro and the chaotic chorus, and most of all, it’s about vampires. Plus the MCR reunion tour in the summer and Gerard Way wearing different costumes on stage every night, it feels like Halloween has started soon”- JC

Sarah Jones, News & Entertainment Reporter

Patiently and cautiously, “You’re mine tonight”

“Gives me creeps every time I hear it on American Horror Story! “- SJ

Jason Katz, Video Director

Phil Collins, “Don’t Lose My Number”

“This is going to be a little weird because the song is so catchy, but I always thought Phil Collins” Don’t Lose My Number ‘ is fun but creepy. I feel it could be about a certain killer or someone who is obsessed with someone.

“The lyrics are interesting but there is also some threat in it, such as ‘Don’t lose my number!’ and ‘Oh Billy, you’re better, you’re better, you should run for your life.’

These lyrics are also interesting: “Oh, they come at night, leaving fear behind / Darkness lies on the ground / No one knows where to find him / No evidence is found.” – JK

Alyssa Norwin, Associate Editor of New York

Taylor Swift, “Haunting”

“Because there can be a T. Swift song for any occasion if you want to be there.” – ONE

Sabrina Picou, News & Entertainment Writer

Oingo Boingo, “Party of the Dead”

“It’s in the name! [laughs]“- SP

Audrey Rock, News & Entertainment Writer

Policeman, “Every Breath You Take”

“This song is scary when you put it in the background of a stalker who refuses to move on. I’m willing to bet that a lot of us know someone who fits the bill! “- AR

Chris Rogers, Deputy Editor of Los Angeles

The Chordettes, “Mr. Sandman”

“I’m not sure if this is an official Halloween song, but as a big fan of Halloween movie franchise, this song sends chills down my spine whenever I listen to it. I first discovered it while watching Halloween II (1981), and it’s been my favorite ever since. “- CR

Dina Sartore-Bodo, Managing Editor

Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds, “Red Right Hand”

“It’s creepy and always reminds me of my favorite horror movie, Screaming. “- DSB

Kelby Vera, News Editor

Tubeway Army, “I I Disconnect From You”

“But… more Misfits’ ‘Skulls’ can’t hurt.” – KV

Terry Zeller, News Writer

The Ronettes, “Be My Baby”

“Be My Baby” by Ronettes. Listen to me! [laughs] 1963 Ditty Introduced in New Horror Movie Barbarian, stars Bill Skarsgard (yes, Pennywise from ‘It’!) and Justin Long, and when the song plays at the end credits, trust and believe, you’ll cry for your “mom”. It’s a twisted movie!

(Justin Long is also in the original Jeepers Creepers…. oof, you’ll never hear that song again.) “- TZ

Jason Brow, Music Editor

Karen Black’s Erotic Horror, “Halloween”

“If you’re nearing the end of a Halloween playlist, you have a few options. The work “Halloween” by Misfits (“I miss Halloween”), as well as “October slowly dies” by DieMonsterDie. The second is also a fitting final in 2022, especially since we lost our zinger Zero lead earlier in the year (Rest in peace). I think maybe this time around we’ll pick one of my favorites, The Voluptuous Horror of Karen Black’s “Halloween.” Something about it captures the mood going on in November, and the song helps keep that creepy feeling going for months…until Halloween returns. “- JB
