The Best Halloween Songs of 2022

List Rules

Spooky songs that have been trending this year, ranging from new releases to classic hit songs featured in new horror movies and tv shows.

Trick-or-trick! We're ranking the best Halloween songs of the year across every music genre for your ear candy. Obviously, Kate Bush's “Running Up That Hill” played across everyone's Instagram reels and TikTok videos after its groundbreaking placement in season 4, episode 4 of Stranger Things, where Max Mayfield (Sadie Sink) escaped Vecna's wrath. And with Hocus Pocus 2's long-awaited release on Disney+, Bette Midler's "I Put A Spell On You" is currently streaming throughout millions of households nationwide. But what other Halloween songs arose from 2022, you might ask? Well, Pretty Little Liars: Original Sin featured a haunting playlist of alternative songs by diverse indie artists, and the viral Hulu thriller Fresh included a spine-chilling soundtrack perfect for anyone's post-pandemic Halloween party mixtape. Pop punk superstars Demi Lovato and YUNGBLUD released thematically-dark, angsty alternative albums reflective of fall's sinister nature, and Netflix's latest true crime sensation Dahmer – Monster: The Jeffrey Dahmer Story brings back eerie ‘80s and ’90s bangers to the forefront of pop culture's spooky season.
