FEATURE: reporter Ceresa Morsaint gives you the best Halloween playlist to rock out to during a COVID October 31

October 30, 2020

Before you read any further, I’d like to preface this article by saying that I have been searching for the ultimate spooky playlist for years! But, alas, I could not find one good enough for my ever-changing music taste. A few things to remember while listening, not all of these songs are specifically Halloween songs. Some of them are just spooky or have an eerie vibe to them. Happy Halloween, and enjoy!
