Tunes Tuesday:  Songs for Halloween

I’m still in denial that it’s almost time for Halloween, and yet, here we are in the first week of October!  We recently had people over for a (late) Housewarming Party and it was great being in “entertaining” mode again.  We all had a really nice time. Now I’m thinking that it would be fun to host a Halloween Party, all I need is the right music!

So I put together this playlist with some Halloween-themed songs.  Several of them are pretty obvious choices, but I have a couple of surprises.  Honestly, this was one of the toughest playlists to create – hopefully you enjoy it!

I really hope you like my selections for this month’s Tunes Tuesday!  Scroll down to see the latest additions to my Tunes Tuesday Haloween Tunes playlist on Spotify!
