Music Monday: Halloween Playlist

Halloween is definitely THE favorite holiday around these parts. The creepy, the silly, the macabre, and the odd all enjoy the spotlight for a couple of weeks. All of which puts me in the mood to Monster Mash it up.

Check out some of my favorite Halloween-ish-themed tunes below. This list has a appropriately odd mix of rock, goth, pop, and electronic, as well as those songs famous for their seasonal attritbutes (read: Ghostbusters & Nightmare Before Christmas!), fitting for all of your spooky sensibilities.

Music Monday: Eleanor & Park Playlist

Recently I finished reading the wonderful Eleanor & Park by Rainbow Rowell. One of my favorite things about it is the music! Right on page one are a couple of great bands that I still listen to today. As the music references kept coming, I had to make playlist and listen to it immediately to get my 80’s fix.

I really wanted to hit this list perfect, so all of the songs were released during 1987 or earlier. Many of the artists or songs were mentioned by Eleanor or Park. I’ve also included some of my favorite related songs.

Check it out!

Let me know what songs you think Eleanor and Park shared on their mix tapes in the comments!
