Spooky Season Panther Playlist 

These songs will make you feel the crunching of the leaves beneath your feet, the monster breathing down your neck, or maybe even the parched vampire taking a nibble at your neck.
Spooky Season Panther Playlist 

  1. “Thriller” by Michael Jackson
    • It wouldn’t be an October playlist without “Thriller”. This song will send a chill down your spine as the one and only Micahel Jackson sends you on an eerie journey through the graveyard, warning you about “demons closing in on every side”. Watch the music video for even more of a fright!
  2. “We Fell In Love In October” by girl in red
    • This beautiful love song walks you through a crisp autumn evening, reminding you about everything you love about fall.
  3. “The Monster” by Eminem and Rihanna
    • A perfect combination of pop and rap. This catchy song brings the childhood fear of having a monster under your bed to life, instead suggesting that if you see one, you’re a bit wonky in the head. Eh, it could happen to anyone. Take a peak before you go to bed tonight…
  4.  “Superstition” by Stevie Wonder
    • This upbeat song will remind you of your favorite superstitions, encouraging you to keep up with the fun vibes of the song and to stop worrying about things you can’t control.
  5. “All Too Well (ten minute version)” by Taylor Swift
    • This autumn power ballad is a masterpiece; Taylor Swift at her finest. This heartbreaking but beautiful love story will have you sipping hot chocolate and reaching for the tissues. Listen as Taylor guides you through a romance gone wrong, fittingly set in a chilly, leafy autumn scene. And yes, you do need to listen to all ten minutes.
  6. “Ghostbusters” by Ray Parker Jr.
    • Does this song need explaining? It’s a classic. Listen as some lucky men pursue some creepy ghosts through the streets. Who are you going to call about the creaking in your pipes? Ghostbusters!
  7. “Calling All the Monsters” by China Anne Mclain
    • This was a Disney Channel staple. Is it a large monster brawl, or a large monster dance party? Take a listen and you decide!
  8. “Heads Will Roll” by the Yeah Yeah Yeahs
    • Have you ever danced so hard that your head just fell right off and rolled onto the floor? 
  9. “A Nightmare on My Street” by DJ Jazzy Jeff and the Fresh Prince
    • What’s better than Will Smith warning you about a stalker who wants him dead? I’ll wait.
  10. “Disturbia” by Rihanna
    • A fun pop song by Rihanna, this song will remind you to stay wise and watch out for the thief in the night that’s coming for you! Maybe use a flashlight during that next night time walk…
  11. “The Monster Mash” by Bobby “Boris” Pickett
    • These monsters aren’t scary–they just want to dance! Listen and imagine all of the dance moves that these groovy monsters are doing in the lab. I wonder if they knocked over any chemicals?
  12. “Somebody’s Watching Me” by Michael Jackson
    • When you’re walking down a long narrow path in the woods and you feel yourself under the heated stare of a pair of yellow eyes nearby…who’s watching Michael Jackson?
