halloween playlist for non-children

happy halloween everyone!
reader katie emailed me asking my opinion on a halloween party playlist. 
she specifically said "an edgy playlist sans monster mash." i hear you loud and clear, girl. 
although i downloaded the "monster mash and other songs of horror" album for $2.99 and it is actually pretty good!
as i was scrolling through our iTunes i couldn't help but laugh, musicians seem to sing about the weird/morbid/creepy almost as much the topic of love. 
needless to say i had to chisel away at the playlist until i stopped at 31, in honor of the day.

these songs are either creepy in sound or lyric, will make you dance or make you cringe, but will add to any party you've got tonight!
