The Spooky Spotify Podcasts, Greenroom Live Events, and Songs Sure To Give You Goosebumps This Scary Season

26/10/2021

On October 1, listeners were ready: There was a nearly 100% jump in Halloween-themed streaming on the first day of the spookiest month, compared to the day before. And with over 2.9 million user-generated Halloween playlists to choose from, it's fair to say the sounds of spooky season can be found on Spotify. So whether you're streaming the cult classics, finding new spooky songs, or looking for a podcast to give you goosebumps, there's something for everyone on Spotify.

Spirited Halloween streaming This October, we've noticed that all-time Halloween classics are back in action, with streams significantly spiking when compared to the previous month. Monster Mash, for example, was up by 350%, and This is Halloween from The Nightmare Before Christmas was up by 280%. However, there are also some new tricks on the block: More recent popular songs added to Halloween playlists include Stranger Things by Kyle Dixon & Michael Stein; bad guy by Billie Eilish; Black Magic by Little Mix; Season of the Witch by Lana Del Rey; Sweet but Psycho by Ava Max; and Get Ghost by A$AP Ferg, Mark Ronson and Passion Pit.

And finally, when it comes to true crime and horror podcast content, the western states of the U.S.-including Wyoming, Montana and Utah-were among the top in the country to stream scary-themed podcasts (relative to their overall podcast listening).

Our howlin' Halloween hub Not sure where to start? We've brought back our Halloween hub, with a spiderweb of curated content to get you into the spirit. In addition to the essential Halloween music on Headbanger Halloween, Trick or Treat, and Fright Fest, the hub will feature spooktacular podcast playlist curations from the likes of Benito Skinner, Stephanie Soo, Loey Lane and Snitchery, Ashley Flowers, and Last Podcast on the Left. Also head there if you're looking for editorial podcast playlists like Spooky Stories, Unsolved Crimes & Mysteries, True Crime Scene, or Conspiracy Theories.

The truest True Crime Scene hub We've also refreshed our True Crime Scene hub to feature new podcast content, with new podcast playlists, frighteningly binge-worthy pop culture podcasts, true crime series, and more-including themed episodes from shows like Crime Movie Club. While you're there, check out our Spooky Stories podcast playlist, where we're counting down the 31 spookiest ghost stories, one per day, leading up to Halloween.

Don't ghost on Greenroom Finally, Spotify Greenroom is also getting in the spooky season spirit with a week full of live, interactive programming celebrating Halloween, including conversations on everything from scary movies to conspiracy theories to real-life ghost encounters. In addition to Spotify Greenroom's true crime shows Crime Movie Club and True Crime Rewind, check out the pop culture conspiracy-focused Popspiracy and the mystical Ask the Tarot, which are always perfectly poised to celebrate Halloween. Spotify Greenroom is available for download on iOS and Android devices.
