Welcome...to your best nightmare. It’s Halloween weekend and we’re getting possessed in paradise, unleashing nightcrawlers to get your spine tinglin and whole body shakin. The Kyghosts and Thomas Jack-O-Lanterns are boo-ming spooky sounds out the speakers and this haunted beach house is full of tricks and treats to get you dancing with the devil all night long. This week we’re letting the spirits take over the chart and play us some freaky goosebumpin beats. I’ve split this playlist in half (with a chainsaw) and separated the songs into a variety of costumes that are either TRICK or TREAT. The TRICKS are the moans & groans to howl at the moon with. I put a spell on you and now you’re mine kind of sexy slayers that will get your bones jumpin. The TREATS are the classic costumes. These ain’t no basic bitch pumpkins though. We’re talking throwback jams with a twisted tropical mind. The haunting hour is upon us, time for these serial chillers to carve you into a glowing pineapp-o-lantern...
Note: The full playlist can be found at the bottom of this article if you just wanna jam all the way through! Enjoy
1. “M.I.T.M. (Peer Kusiv & Rauschhaus Edit)” MJ
VAMPIRE ::: The man in the mirror is not even there if you’re a vampire so you just do you BOO. I like you just the way you are. We creatures of the night are doing it right so hang out with your fangs out and fly on high. Micheal Jackson just screams Halloween to me so what better way to kick things off than with a remix that turns him into the King of PopTrop.
2. “No Sleep (Nedu Mix)” Wiz Khalifa
A GIANT BANANA or RED SOLO CUP ::: The go to costume for any college underclassman with an equally cheap beer soaked coastline sing-along to match. Rock your Sperrys and Chubbies to this refreshing take on one of Wiz’s best anthems for living hella young and supes reckless. So freshie.
3. “When Doves Cry (Radio Edit)” Mark Tarmonea
THE BIG BAD WOLF ::: Grandma, what big sexy pipes you have. Lil Red has no chance when she hears this howling Calypso cover of Prince’s classic and neither will you when it has you in its grasp.
4. “Rude (Mennska Remix)” MAGIC!
BRIDE OF FRANKENSTEIN ::: Forbidden love sometimes goes to an extreme. One of the hot as hell hits of the summer gets a trop makeover, rivaling the quality of Zedd’s recent rework. This recently married monster mamacita won’t put up with competition though, so you know how it goes. Zedd’s dead baby, Zedd’s dead...
5. “Just Like Heaven (The Penelopes Remix)” The Cure
THE BREAKFAST CLUB ::: A brain (yum), an athlete, a basket case, a princess and a criminal I think would have a damn good time tonight if they were out dancing under the pale moonlight. This Cure remix is the remedy to anything in life that haunts you, keeping all the best parts of the legendary song intact and giving it that extra sandy step. Embrace the 80’s and whichever member of the club you become just remember...we’re all pretty bizarre. Some of us are just better at hiding it.
::: TRICKS :::
6. “Gold Skies (Bender All Hallow’s Remix)” Sander Van Doorn, Martin Garrix & DVBBS
FEMME FATALE ::: Once she has her lips on yours its over. And you don’t even care. This poisonous flower will seduce you and reduce you to nothing but dammit it’s gonna be the best way to go out. This track turns tricks on you and Bender has gone all out to create a frighteningly fantastic anthem for the fall festivities.
7. “Cool Kids (Win & Woo Remix)” Echosmith
BLACK CATFISH ::: This beauty in a tight black cat outfit isn’t who she appears. She’s a sweetheart really but for just this one night she can unleash her wild side and catfish the world, becoming the firey feline you see ready to pounce. All you cool kids and kitties have some fun tonight and let out the animal in you.
8. “Hunger (Jaded Remix)” Sam Sure
WEAR-VERY LITTLE-WOLF ::: A desirous discobabe finds her way on the dancefloor in front of you as the glowing full moon slowly comes out from behind the dark clouds. What happens next is something I don’t wish upon any man who doesn’t like to have an amazing time. This cursed club thumper pulses with deep house darkness, even howling at the moon at certain points as it slashes your senses.
9. “Weekend (Oliver Nelson Remix)” Priory
GNARWHAL ::: This magical mythical creature is too hot to handle. Halloween is going to quickly turn into the Chronicles of Gnarnia if you’re partying with a gnarwhal and what a whale of a tale it will be tomorrow. Disco dive into these enchanted waters and groove, vibe and high fin all night looonnngggg.
10. “The Holiday” Friend Within
I CAN’T EVEN ::: There’s always that person with the clever lazy costume that just came to party. Tonight I’m going all out as Space Jam Bill Murray but tomorrow I’ll be wearing a white tee with crossed out even numbers because like a pumpkin spice frappacino I just can’t even. Comfort costumes are the way to go and this year I’m all about that life. This song is just here for a good time. It’s the kickoff of the holiday season and time to let loose to some thumpin bumpin vibez. Get dancin and get haunted...HAPPY HALLOWEEN!!!
Full Chart. Groove on…
