Halloween Party Jams

Are you having a Halloween party anytime soon? If you were undecided as to when, "soon" would be a good time, but what music are you going to play? If babies are coming over (Why!? JK, babies are the heart of Halloween. Mmm, baby hearts...) you might want to go with Aquarium Drunkard's vintage Halloween mixtape of 34 tunes from the '50s and '60s — that was before we had swears. Or how about a mostly cheesy/funny ghoulish hip hop playlist from a lady named Melissa? If not hip hop, try spooky trip hop from DJ Rocko. And for something truly spine-tingling, this two-hour, NSFW mix of death metal/psyche/scary raps — but a lot of it is remixed to be even ickier — from the ever-excellent Mishka Bloglin would really set the mood for a bloodletting. However, since those are illegal (right?), you should probably just listen to it in your headphones.

for a minute from the picture i thought this was going to be about making actual jam.

which i realize was the point. but still. got me.


@wearitcounts Me too. I was like, "Halloween marmalade?? OK!" But music's fine, too, I guess.


@Ophelia There were pictures of oranges and everything! Halloween blood orange marmalade please!


geniuses in my opinion.@k


My mom is firmly in the "Night on Bald Mountain" camp for when kids come around on Halloween. I mean, she has a whole CD of Halloweeny music, but she always switches it to the Mussorgsky track before opening the door. (She did it when I was a kid, and I know she still does it now because it's usually playing when she calls me on Halloween. Love you, mom, don't ever change.)


@frigwiggin Also, a couple of years ago my boyfriend made me a mixtape that for some reason had some Halloweeny tracks on it ("Grim Grinning Ghosts," spooky pipe organ) and it also included the terriblest Will Smith song that is my favorite forever. SET TO ILL Y'ALL


My cheesy Halloween playlist includes:
"Halloween" by Siouxsie and the Banshees
"Wolf Like Me" by Echo & The Bunnymen
"Operate" by Peaches
"Psycho Killer" by Talking Heads
"Anniemal" by Annie
"463" by Buck 65
"Ghost Town" by The Specials
"Monster Rap" by Elvira
"Walk the Night" by the Skatt Brothers
"Cat with Two Heads" by Aquabats
"Devil in my Car" by the B-52s
"Paranoid" by Black Sabbath
"Gary Gilmore's Eyes" by the Adverts
"People Are Strange" by the Doors
"Monster" by Lady Gaga
"Werewolves of London" by Warren Zevon
"Waltz in Black" by the Stranglers

...and then Sonic Youth's Bad Moon Rising, over and over again til I start to whimper in terror.


@Decca Psycho Killer! Excellent choice. Also "Pet Sematary" by the Ramones on repeat until my friends make me change it. Also the Misfits, also "Wolf Like Me" by TV on the Radio.

Veronica Lemmons

@Decca "Werewolves of London" YES. I tried hating it for a time, back in high school, but resistance is futile.


@remargaret Yikes, yes I meant "Wolf Like Me" by TV on the Radio, and "Killing Moon" by E&TB!




One of my Halloween favorites is "Doin' It in a Haunted House" by Yvonne Gage. It's exactly what it sounds like!


I am having a Halloween party at the weekend, so thanks!
Question: does anyone know of any good Halloween party games?

baked bean

@teaandcakeordeath I am also having a Halloween party.
Are you having a punch bowl with an ice hand in it? Because we are. YAY HALLOWEEN!

fondue with cheddar

@teaandcakeordeath @baked bean Jealous! I used to have a Halloween party every year but alas, I lived in too small of a place after splitting with my ex, and even though I'm in a house now life is a little crazy so I'll have to wait until next year.

My favorite part of preparing for the party was replacing all the lightbulbs with colored ones.

baked bean

@fondue with cheddar I always get stressed out that no one is going to come. My two roommates invited their friends via facebook and they're freaking out because they invited like 30 people and there are only 3 definite yeses so far and a few maybes and a lot of no responses. But people on facebook are so non-committal! I told them not to worry about it.

fondue with cheddar

@baked bean Ugh...it's annoying when people are non-committal. Small, intimate gatherings have a different dynamic, and as long as you're open to that and not disappointed with not having a big crowd, I'm sure you'll have a great time either way.

baked bean

@fondue with cheddar Naw, smallish is what we were going for. Like my one roommie has more experience in parties and said, "Invite twice as many as you want to come," and we're not even getting that response. We'd just like to hang out with some of those people we don't normally hang out with. But that's why, I guess! Our best friends have committed.


@teaandcakeordeath murder mystery games! clue?


@baked bean I am having punch with an ice hand!!!

I'm a little worried that too many people will come, especially undergraduates, and the police will shut it down and I'll get my name in the newspaper of the university I work at, and then will lose my job.

fondue with cheddar

@baked bean Yeah, that's a pretty good guideline. Have fun!

baked bean

@Ellie Yeah I'm sure our neighbors will be throwing parties, as we live in a complex that's all students. We're afraid we'll get random people coming over, but they'll probably leave when they realize we don't have free booze other than spiced mead and that music levels will be low enough to have conversation.

fondue with cheddar

@baked bean Maybe you could put a sign on your door that makes it look like you're having a little kid's birthday party?

baked bean

@fondue with cheddar We have a cute little sparkly jack-o-lantern with a witch hat decoration on the door.

Also we went overboard and have 5 jack-o-lanterns, including the idea that's been floating around pinterest with the jack-o-lantern eating a human leg.

fondue with cheddar

@baked bean I love the leg idea. One can never have too many jack-o-lanterns!

baked bean

@fondue with cheddar Best of all, it's eating a leg adorning my roommate's old fake ugg that she no longer wanted. And I very strongly dislike uggs.

fondue with cheddar

@baked bean Are you going to smear fake blood on it?

baked bean

@teaandcakeordeath I had a half-bottle of dark red craft paint that was a little clogged and squeezed all of it all over the pumpkin. The clog caused some great splattering and explosions of paint.

fondue with cheddar

@baked bean That is fantastic.

The correct term is babes, sir

@teaandcakeordeath horror movie trivia or "scary" pictionary?


Oooh! I didn't expect so many comments. It's like getting surprise mail! Though I'm a little too drunk to read properly. Again, like surprise mail!
An ice hand sounds amazing! I think there might be a tiny turn up to my party too but that means playing articulate or scary pictionary is more likely, yay! I love halloween. Im going to go watch YouTube vids of how to do scary make up.


@Ellie Update: The party was a big success, a lot of people came, no undergraduate threw up (in the house at least), it was even practically inaudible from the street, nobody got hazed, and I didn't get too shitfaced. The only bad thing that happened is that I spilled red wine all over a white chair and now have to work on a dry red wine stain.

baked bean

@Ellie Yay for the success! You should just spill wine all over your chair and have a reddish purple chair.


I tried the ice hand! But then I accidentally smashed all the fingers and only the middle one was left so it became an offensive hand.

fondue with cheddar

Aquarium Drunkard's previous two Halloween mixtapes are still available too!

maybe partying will help

I like the Donnie Darko soundtrack this time of year. Also "Blood" by Priestess and "The Zodiac" by Kamelot. Actually a lot of the latter's second-most-recent album is kind of creepy.


@maybe partying will help oooh donnie darko soundtrack FTW


"code blue" by TSOL. the only halloween song you need. also probably the reason I dont have any halloween plans. also I'm sorry.


Why are only some of those blood oranges half-bloodied? "Just a flesh wound" oranges.


I'm having a Halloween party tonight but I'm not looking forward to it because I have been incredibly sick with the flu all week and still feel terrible. Also, one of my roommates told me he was planning to have some kind of "initiation rite" for his singing group in our house during the party (already, what the fuck?) and I had to have a "serious talk" with him about what hazing is and how it cannot happen under our roof (or anywhere, ever).

baked bean

@Ellie Liked the part about you sitting down with him and having a talk, not the rest. haha.


"This Is Halloween" still scares me. EFF YOU CALAWAY PARK HAUNTED HOUSE


Can't leave this out.

fondue with cheddar

I've had "Ghost Town" by The Specials stuck in my head all afternoon. It's so nice to have a good song stuck in my head for once.

etc etc

You can't forget "Do They Know It's Hallowe'en?" by the North American Halloween Prevention Initiative! http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jVc11TB8_9g

I am nerdily excited about this. I played last year's playlist on repeat for days leading up to Halloween and got a little addicted to it. This comes just in time for the hours it's gonna take me to do my Dia de los Muertos make-up for a party tonight. WEEEEEEEE!


For people who cannot manually brush their teeth for some reason, the electric type is the better option. n Electric toothbrush is an appliance that is used as a toothbrush just like the name suggests. best electric toothbrush this website To most people, brushing their teeth is a boring chore. The benefits and special features of an electric toothbrush will not always produce the same results as others.
