From the DiS arrive, this originally appeared on DiS back in 2009 and has been updated over the years....
DiS has hand-picked almost four hours of music to soundtrack your All Hallow's eve and somehow managed to avoid anything as, ahem, obvious as including The Horrors.
On this playlist we've mixed theme tunes from TV shows and songs from horror movie soundtracks with some ghoulishly titled tracks from some of DiS' favourite acts, plus some gothic ridiculousness from Cradle of Filth and found Burroughs reading some Edgar Allan Poe.
Anyway, if you don't know the Spotifriday deal by now you'll need the Spotify software on your computer (download it from spotify.com and then you CLICK THIS PLAYLIST LINK and the tracks magically appear on your computer).

Spotifriday Playlist: DiS Hallowe'en Special
Oh and one bonus track, which someone informed me of this morning but I couldn't find on Spotify from Aereogramme...
Alternatively, if you think the above is rubbish, you could put on The Twilight Saga: New Moon - Music From the Original Motion Picture Soundtrack (on Spotify here) ahead of its release, although don't confuse New Moon with this Elliott Smith album, obvs. We know we've probably missed a bunch of obvious tracks, so please feel free to make suggestions or go one better and share your Hallowe'en themed playlist in the comments section below.
Happy trick or treating...
