How to create your Halloween music mix
The best Halloween songs
You have your costume. The decorations are ready. Most of the food in your house has been re-purposed to look or feel like something totally gross. But there’s one component missing from your upcoming Halloween activities. That is the music! You need the best Halloween songs out there, and you don’t want to spend a skeleton arm and a leg.
Fortunately, there are a lot of places from which to snag music, and a lot of offers on individual tracks that can keep a lot more of your cash in your pocket.
Know what you want
If you’re looking to pick up tracks for your Halloween mix, you’ll likely want to get them piecemeal – one at a time. The good news is that you can get digital songs from lots of different providers. Services such as eMusic will let you snag a number of tracks individually, letting you build your playlist on your own.
If you’d rather snag a disc with all the music you’re looking for, try one of the bigger music stores. Best Buy offers a pretty massive music collection, for starters, as do stores like FYE. There are other music sellers like CD Universe also will cut you a deal on CDs and on shipping. All of these are likely to have what you’re looking for to set the mood.
Halloween stores carry the full range
Pop-up Halloween shops usually offer more than costumes for the last-minute shopper. They also stock things such as decorations and other essentials, including Halloween music. If your search hasn’t been too fruitful in other places, they’re definitely worth a look.
Spirit Halloween, for example, offers 6.5 percent cash back and 20 percent off any single item, so checking around to see if the store has what you want might yield some pretty decent savings. The same goes for Halloween Effects, but you’ll have to check around to be sure.
When it comes to Halloween gear, plenty of stores are offering useful items for the holiday. But when it comes to music, your best bet might be to check out other possibilities and regular music sellers and services before hitting the Halloween shops and spending whatever they ask.
