You’re walking home. It’s dark. It’s never been this dark before, has it? The fog is hanging lower and lower while the yellow hum of dim street lamps makes the entire scene feel otherworldly. An owl coos, a branch breaks.
A playlist of songs that are eerily beautiful, something’s slightly unsettling about them. Whether it’s the lyrics or the tune or that droning hum buzzing in the background, these are the songs that best capture the bone-chilling vibe of October. Think Tim Burton, Stranger Things, kitschy vintage Halloween, and Salem Witch Trials.
