11 Secretly Spooky Halloween Songs

It's that time of the year again! Jack-o-lanterns, black cats and spooky ghosts. October is upon us, and there's nothing like some spooky jams to get you into the Halloween spirit. Not everyone loves this holiday, and I've annoyed my fair share of roommates and family members with The Nightmare Before Christmas soundtrack. In order to bring a more secretive spookiness to my playlist, I opt for songs that aren't overtly about Halloween, but still satisfy my eerie song cravings. If eleven songs isn't enough, click here for even more creepy tunes!

1. Creep by Radiohead

Because at the end of the day, we are all creepy in our own way.

2. Cannibal by Kesha

The only pop song I've ever heard that references Jeffery Dahmer. Definitely not good for a kid's Halloween party.

3. I Want Candy by the Strangeloves

One of the goals of Halloween night: get lots of sugary sweets!

4. Demons by Imagine Dragons

What's scarier than facing off with Satan's evil spawn? Actually facing your inner demons. I'd rather fight the former.

5. Black Widow by Iggy Azalea ft. Rita Ora

It isn't Halloween if there aren't a couple of creepy crawlies skulking around.

6. The Devil Went Down to Georgia by Primus

Who taught Satan to play the fiddle? The world may never know.

7. Black Magic by Little Mix

Bubblegum pop with a witchy twist!

8. Midnight City by M83

Technically the witching hour is between 3 and 4 AM, but midnight will do for those of us who like going to bed at a decent hour.

9. Hungry Like the Wolf by Duran Duran

Exactly how hungry are wolves?

10. Bad Blood by Taylor Swift

A vampire's worst nightmare: bad blood.

11. My Songs Know What You Did in the Dark by Fall Out Boy

Nothing escapes the all seeing eye of Fall Out Boy.

Summer Slump

Summer isn't alway just fun in the sun.

Summer Slump

Summer is a time for fun in the sun, hanging out with friends, and living it up, but for some people, that's not the case. Summer is a nightmare for idle minds. Let me explain what I mean by that. For people with mental illness having the extra time to think and relax can be devastating for their mental health. Now, this isn't a problem for everyone but for some people who suffer from mental illness, this is a reality.

NYC Classrooms struggle with marijuana and high students

The Cannabis landscape has changed, and so have what schools experience

The National Institute on Drug Abuse (NIDA) reported that about 35.7% of 12th graders in the U.S. had used marijuana in the past year, and 11.8% reported daily use. As for coming to school under the influence, specific statistics can be hard to come by, but there is concern that the increasing social acceptance of marijuana may lead to higher rates of use among teenagers.
