It’s Halloween 2012 but if you’re bored of having the old classics popping up on your Halloween party playlists, never fear, Swide’s playlist has a modern twist. Here are 10 songs for Halloween 2012.
It’s always important that your playlist has a little something for everyone and that the styles and genres of the songs are not juxtaposed too severely. It’s best to group similar styles together, making sure the most popular or known track is sandwich between iconic crowd pleasers. Check out what Swide has put together, this is our modern take on the perfect Halloween Party Playlist:
Yeah Yeah Yeahs - Date With the Night. Almost 10 years old and still packs an almighty art punk punch.
Queens of the Stone Age - Burn the Witch. 2006 saw the blues rock of QofS take dark and folkloristic themes through falsettos and baritones, getting us all embracing a rock stance for 3:30.
The Rolling Stones - Sympathy for the Devil. Simply awesome. Period.
Zebra Katz - Ima Read. Recently interviewed for Swide, Zebra Katz’s dark, minimal ode to modern hip hop has enough rasp and sass to spin you into a cold sweat.
Diplo - Must be the Devil. 6:32 of electronic beats accompanied with a beaten out acoustic guitar is a perfect example of what Diplo is capable of.
Die Antwoord - I Fink U Freeky. Just click play and you’ll see why this track made the list.
Peaches – Blast. Electro Clash underground queen Peaches is back with a track produce by Boys Noize, Germany’s Alexander Ridha, and it is bound to get your guests tearing up the dance floor.
Ke$ha – Die Young. Our favourite glitter covered trashstar Ke$ha is back on the scene, providing us with the perfect track to end any Halloween playlist.
Rihanna – Disturbia. But if your guests are not satisfied and are after one last modern chart classic, then Rihanna’s Disturbia will do the trick… and it’ll inspire some mean costumes too.
Prodigy - Fire Starter. The ultimate encore to anyone still standing is the iconic Fire Starter by English boys Prodigy, whose anthem changed the popular dance scene for years after this track was released back in 1996.
